I am joining the disability march because, while I would love to be there in person, I do not have the physical or emotional fortitude to do so at the moment. I live with fibromyalgia and issues with my feet that make walking a daily pain, and I have severe anxiety in crowds. I’m glad to know there’s an option that lets me still be there!
Biography: I am a woman, a perpetual academic, an aspiring museum professional (Lucas Museum or bust!), a patriot for a country full of people that keep telling me I’m not good enough, and yet I persist. We must persist.
