I march because I am honestly scared that the man sitting in the seat of ultimate power in this country is about to turn it into an oppressive, fascist dictatorship. I march because my people were put into concentration camps and slaughtered by the millions and I am terrified that it may happen again. I march because I am more than my gender or my disability and I refuse to let anyone take that power away from me or my sister, my niece, or my mother. I march because he is only one man and we are many and if we stand together, we also stand a chance of keeping each other safe.
I am a veterinarian; I am a teacher; I am a scientist. I am a daughter, and a sister, and an aunt. I read, I write, and I love to talk. I am a musician, and a singer, and a practicer of many crafts. The rest is just window dressing.
