We went to the Women’s March in San Antonio yesterday. And there’s something I need you to know about it…
There were people who 100% agreed with the Unity Principles of the event and people who disagreed with some of it.
But that’s not really the point.
If you look around you and don’t see anyone hurting…
If you look around and don’t see something that needs to change…
If your vote in politics was only considering yourself and others like you…
Get out of your house, find someone different than you, and let them show you around for a day. There’s more out there than you know.
The big deal about the march is that we all came together, no matter how much we agree, and marched. And we got their attention.
It’s important because there were people who were pro-life, people who were pro-choice, people whose main reason for marching was immigration, LGBTQIA rights, disability rights, environmental justice… There were people of every color; men, women, and children.
Not only were there marches in all 50 U.S. States, but also on all 7 continents (even two… TWO in Antarctica! #PenguinsForPeace), and in over 70 countries. It’s estimated that there were about 4 million people marching in the U.S. alone. No one was arrested in D.C., and I have yet to hear of violence at any of the marches.
They React To This
At the end of the day, the president’s response was to have his press secretary go tell the media that there were way more people at the inauguration than the public was told, then he left the room without taking any questions.
Yes, it’s a small, easily checked lie. My question (and the question of many) is why it was told. Guys, I think he noticed us!
The President Has An Agenda For His First 100 Days…
And So Do We.
If you want to see the President’s, it’s right here.
The Women’s March has therefore put together 10 Actions in 100 Days.
The first one is to write your Senators about what YOU are passionate about. Yes, you. Not what their platform says, but what you believe in. What makes you tick? Where do you want to see things happen for our country? What are you praying for? Where do you want to make a difference?
On the 10 Actions in 100 Days webpage you can print out or buy a card, find your semator’s address, and sign up to get updates for the next action.
Will You Join Me?
The world is watching with bated breath. Not only that, they showed that they stand by the everyday American when they marched this weekend.
Whether you marched or not. Whether you agree with the whole platform or not. This is a chance to stand up for the person next to you (even if you’re already standing up for yourself).
It’s never too late to start.
