On Saturday January 21st, I marched down the city of New York. The main point of this march was to promote civil rights for everyone around the world. This was an international movement and I attend the one held in New York City. Nearly 4.8 million people around the world joined this march. Women’s March Website
I am happy to share with you, that it was a beautiful experience! For the first time in my life, I felt the warm feeling of unity amongst thousands of New Yorkers. This was nothing compared to the awkward train ride to work in the morning. Everyone was on the same page (men, women and children) chanting and singing along, marching with their hand-made posters (and they were extremely creative), everyone was free to express themselves peacefully but yet together and that was the true beauty of this movement. Attending this march, has made me realize how important it is to stand with your community. This experience goes on the “Stories to tell my children” list. Truly happy to say that I was part of a beautiful piece of history.
