This list. This list includes friends from my teen years, college years, young professional years, and blogger friends too. This list is just a slice of a very, very large pie. Some marched with friends, others with family, and several had their children with them too. This list includes: a domestic abuse survivor who has worked with other victims and speaks in public forums about her experience; a child of Mexican immigrants who graduated from my same university; church worship leaders; a friend whose sister is married to a woman, and they've received death threats because of it; a mother of a homosexual daughter; well-informed, well-intended, well-educated strong human beings.
As I looked through their posts and pictures, my heart was bursting. They marched for you and for me. My post is their post, so I will share their pictures.
"I marched to stand up and show my support for women, but also children, people of color, the LGBTQ community, the environment, health care, veterans, immigrants, sexual assault victims, education, Muslims, and people with disabilities. Everyone."
Thank you, marchers.
