We March, We Matter (Video)
Standing in stark contrast to the surprisingly bare and almost military-state of the inauguration, Christine and I participated in the Women’s March on Washington — a movement filled with passion, people and the color pink.
I’ve never “marched” in a rally before. And the marching part was actually impossible for a while, as the completely overwhelming crowds forced a standstill on the parade route. In that moment, pinned against the Air and Space Museum, a sliver of cell service revealed the scope of this event. This wasn’t just a DC protest. Or New York or Los Angeles. But it was Paris, Berlin and Cape Town. It was a moment that demanded the attention of the world.
This was an embrace of a national moral code and the rejection of the lower-case KKK, as Aziz monologued last night — folks using the election of this president to publicly slip into discriminatory behavior. To blatantly ignore the rights of the people.
The people spoke out.
Meagan's daring climb provided for an incredible mid-Mall perspective.
