In The City I Love

Yesterday I marched for women. It was peaceful, it was beautiful, and at some points it brought me to tears. Before the march they estimated 50,000 people to attend. It ended up being around 100,000 people taking over downtown Seattle to stand for themselves and each other. Across the world, men and women, young and old, marched to stand against oppression in all forms. Some were there for reproductive rights, some for people of color, some for refugees, some for the LGBTQ community, all for each other. It was humbling to see people stand for what they are passionate about. We are so blessed to be able to march for ourselves and those who cannot in their country simply because they were born a woman. Regardless of your stance on our current political situation, we must be for each other, willing to speak out against all forms of injustice.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” – Marin Luther King Jr.
