Purpose – Marching On
On Saturday I gathered with 100,000 of my close personal friends in downtown St. Paul for the Women’s March on Washington in Minnesota. I couldn’t believe the turnout – they expected around 25,000 to 30,000 people. I’m proud of my State for turning out in droves.
I have many reasons I chose to march. My son’s future for one – his education, his environment, his very life. And I marched because I will never ever support a person in high office who made statements about women the way our current President did.
Will it change the outcome of the election? No. But it made me feel better to be with other people who feel the same way, it made me feel like together we can achieve things, together we can work towards a better future. So no, nothing changed from marching on Saturday, but it was cathartic and it is the first step in trying to make a change and come together for a better tomorrow.
Onward and upward, I’m ready to get to work.
