Human Rights should come first, not greed, not bullying,
Inspired by the Women's March on Washington there were almost 700 "Sister Marches" all around the US and around the world (VISIT: SISTER MARCHES here)
The city of Bellingham, that The Shepherd & I call home had a march today. - I saw one report that there was an estimated 5000 people there.
Meanwhile, on the "other side of the State" - my older sister lives in YAKIMA, WA. It is, to say the least, a "conservative" area, but she and several other members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Yakima, encouraged and inspired by the other marches that were being planned all around the US began planning their own. They had imagined that they might get between 250-400 people - They got over 1000! My sister was beyond thrilled. (That is her just to the right of the banner, carrying the bright pink sign - "1972, An original Ms.")
The march ended up at their church which is in downtown Yakima.
Blessings on all those who have spend the past couple of months, planning and working (and knitting those crazy pink Pussy-Hats).
May you sleep well tonight, safe in the knowledge that a new day has dawned, and it looks like it's going to be a good one.
