Beautiful stuff. So proud of what we collectively accomplished. There will be good from all this. I wish I'd shared Joe's photo of him Marching in Copenhagen!

What a day! Great collection of photos! Wish I'd shown you some that illustrated my experience, my sign, my posse, especially my daughter.

Lovely, and you're welcome

Thank you for your thanks and your awesome montage...there really was so much to take in and so many great words that were put on signs with care and hats made and given away with love. The world came together to say that love will always trump hate...and leave it to women to get it done in a peaceful manner! "This is what democracy looks like" and "we want a leader, not a creepy tweeter" were some of my favorite chants. Until next time...

Lol, I'd not heard that last one, Dot. Funny stuff. I bet being in DC was pretty amazing.

And yes, thanks you to ALL who marched, made signs, made hats, etc. What an amazing success. Herstory being made.

xoxo,
beth
