2nd Annual Women’s March

The Culmination of so many cultures and skin tones under the brim of one single theme was absolutely  impressive. Can’t say I was excited to attend the 2nd National Women’s March here in D.C. In fact, when my editor asked me to go out I thought “It’s Saturday, I finished a bottle of wine last night, I’m tired and I ain’t tryna go.” Coincidentally enough, it was actually a nice day, perfect for a march and as I squeezed myself into a favorite pair of jeans (bloated from the night before…or at least that’s what I tell myself), I considered dropping the whole idea, telling the editor I was sick and making a complete run for it.

However, now that I am safely back home, (and a few pounds a lighter I might add, due to all the walking–I can imagine if I want to) I can honestly say I’m glad I went. What a privilege to be in the midst of positive and courageous women, blending together by their need for justice. The theme for this year’s march, was Power to the Polls, and rightly so. Empowering women to vote and to run for office might just might spark a huge change in history come this next presidential election. I guess some people might not be OK with that idea, but the old adage holds true…if you can’t beat em, join em.
