We joined a crowd of 90,000-100,000 people in the Women’s March Minnesota yesterday. With an expected crowd of 20,000 it soon became apparent that many more people found this an important event to support. Light rail and buses were overflowing with commuters, but everyone was in good spirits with the intentions of the day; songs erupted – “Lean on Me,” “It’s a Small World” – and everyone joined in. Navigating the sidewalks and streets that were filled with melted snow and ice was part of the day. The crowd of women, men, and children moved slowly toward the Capitol building, all in support of a movement for respect, dignity, health, and family. It was good to join family, friends, and others who marched peacefully throughout this country and throughout the world bringing attention to the concerns of many.
Fabulous! Glad you did this! We watched quite a bit of it on C-Span and were feeling sooo inspired. Hold on to the feeling…rough road ahead.
