THIS is What Democracy Looks Like

img_0692

Although a registered Independent, my values and beliefs align much more with the Democratic party than with the Republican.  Like many Americans, I was completely disgusted by the recent presidential election, and horrified by the results.  While Hillary was certainly not without fault, she was by far a better candidate than the racist fascist who is now our leader.  Thanks to the outdated and ridiculous process of the electoral college, the popular vote meant nothing.

Yesterday marked a remarkably important and crucial event in American history.  Hundreds of thousands of women came together across the country and world to unify as one.  We took a stand against racism, sexism, and hate.  We stood up for our basic human rights.  We demonstrated that we will not participate in a bigoted, one-sided, and sexist agenda.  We took a stand.

I am proud to say that I marched, along with my husband and our seven month old daughter.  It was a long and tiring day, but I am proud to say that I was a part of history.  I am proud to say that I am one of those “nasty women” who Trump needs to watch out for.  We will not be silent, we will not back down.  Do not curse the darkness.  Be the light.  ❤
