Today is the big day. I leave this morning for Austin, TX, to take part in my first protest march tomorrow.
Yes, I’m 50 years old and I’ve never done this before. I’ve bitched, I’ve ranted, I’ve donated, But I’ve never stood up with anyone for a cause I believed in so passionately. Tomorrow, with my best friend and so many other women, I will do just that.
Today, many Americans will see a dangerous narcissist sworn into office. A bully. A bad example for our children. Someone who has disparaged and insulted minorities, the disabled, and women.
Someone who has already begun to strip away our rights, bit by bit.
Someone who wants to take us back to those “good old days”, when women stayed home and everyone “knew their place” in society.
We stand tomorrow. We’re having a peaceful protest tomorrow in Austin. We march for our rights… for your rights.
