Today, We Marched

img_7374My sister and my niece marched in Washington, D.C.

My eldest daughter marched in Chicago.

And my youngest daughter and I marched in Miami.

We were joined by thousands of others.

In this country and abroad.

Men, women and children.

Educated people. Intelligent people. Socially conscious people.

Peacefully.

Proudly.

We marched to be heard.

Voices that cannot, and should not, be silenced.

We marched for equality.

For women’s rights. For black lives. For the LGBTQ community. For immigrants. For the environment. For the disabled. For affordable healthcare for all.

We marched for progress.

Not to go back to some America people keep saying was great.

But to look forward to an America that can and should be better than it has ever been.

Today, we marched because #LoveTrumpsHate
