Originally, I was going to travel to Washington to march, but in the end I decided to stay and march at home.  And, in an incredibly awful turn of events, two of the three buses that were supposed to head to D.C. from here got canceled by the bus company at the last minute, so it's just as well I had changed my plans.  Last night I checked with the woman I sold my D.C. bus ticket to, and she and her family had decided to carpool down to the Capital and make the march anyway.  Ain't nobody as determined as a pissed-off woman.

As of yesterday afternoon, the local March had six hundred RSVPs on Facebook. Today's current attendance estimate?  Three thousand. Not bad for this little town!

Awesome - all of the signs are great. I especially liked "I am no longer accepting things I cannot change; I am changing things I cannot accept." My new motto for 2017!

my tiny town had 700! I found out after the fact or it would have had one more. I had a dr appointment that day but I totally would have gone before or after

I hear the next march is going to be on April 15, to demand release of the tax returns. I'm ready!

Sunday, Jan. 29.......Daughter (and family?) headed to protest against Muslim Ban in front of White House today. Will be marches all over the country, never mind in the airports.

Ginny (James P.), I loved your daughter's sign! If the current administration thinks that freedom for all is going to go down without a fight, they're sadly mistaken. We've just got to keep speaking out. :)
