WE WILL BE HEARD
#NewYorkCity holds a pro-woman/anti-Donald Trump rally in conjunction with other cities around the #usa & the world, including in #Antarctica. 400,000 people attended the rally in the #NYC, which was more than the number of attendees for the #POTUS#inauguration. Trump's hometown, as organizer Chirlane McCray said, "has always been the center of progressive #America, and that will never change." No word on how many people showed up in #Moscow.
Today. Today went down in history. As I drove to Jenny's super early this morning for the @womensmarchsea, listening to the radio, I could hear the speeches happening in D.C. - the excitement - stories - MILLIONS of women, children, families marching across the entire WORLD. From #Antarctica (yes, for realz), to Berlin, Capetown SA, and my hometown, #Harrisburg, PA - my people were marching for our beliefs. I began to tear up, happy, overcome with emotion as I thought of my sister and her girlfriends busing down to D.C. for the biggest march of them all.
Each of us, preparing our signs carefully, some had children help (like Jenny!!). Simple messages, powerful messages, all of the things that we believe in that stand to be TAKEN AWAY by the next Presidential administration and Congress. This is so much more than the election. This is about our beliefs, our children and their someday children, for tomorrow, for #hope, for #love, for #equality, for the #environment.
This is just the beginning. I will fight for what I believe in and so will the millions who marched alongside me today from all around our beautiful planet earth ♡
