Yesterday was amazing. We could tell as we approached the metro station this was going to be BIG! There were cars, busses, and massive amounts of people and we weren't even in D.C. The metro ride can only be compared to sardines in a can. Sardines may actually have more room in the can than we had on our train car. Once we made it to the march we quickly staked out a spot to listen to the amazing speakers. If you are familiar with D.C. we were standing close the the Smithsonian Castle. Luckily there was a short wall close by and a very nice lady willingly gave up her spot so my mother-in-law could sit. The crowd was immense, a sea of bodies. The people we met and the ones that surrounded us were so positive and polite. It is hard to believe I am using those terms to describe a crowd in D.C., sometimes that city isn't the most pleasant. It was an incredible experience.
One of the best things about the march was seeing all of the pink hats. I proudly wore mine. To all who sent hats for others to wear I send you a BIG THANK YOU. Your time and efforts were appreciated.

|a simple sign but meaningful message|
I am proud to be from the United States of America. As hard as it is to say I know Donald Trump is president. I do not agree with the agenda he has outlined for our country. I marched in hope that someone in Washington will take notice of the vast group of people who are deeply concerned with his plans for our future.
As always thank you for visiting. Have a lovely week. Lisa
