Women’s March

This merry band of 6 went to the Women’s March in Lansing, Michigan. Thanks to Christie for the group selfie. (I am in the back right, next to Joanne; my spouse.) I believe the crowd was well over 10,000. It was a congenial group, but also very fired up. It was a diverse group in issues, ages, race, and many other things; but also a group in solidarity. In many ways the gathering was a healthy outlet for anger and a time of comforting of fears. I do believe this reaction to the words and deeds of Donald Trump will continue for some time. Incidentally if you haven’t seen Ashley Judd’s recitation of a 19-year olds’ poem, it is well worth the time. I like the part where she describes Trump as “a man who looks like he bathed in Cheeto dust.”

There were thousands of signs. “Sign, sign, everywhere a sign / Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind / Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?…” . They were a bit of a challenge for picture taking due to the crowd and the seemingly constant movement of the signs, but here are some of my favorite:

outraged

Outrage

Clarion Call

resist
