I am there with all of you strong women and people today. My heart is heavy as I also lost my stepfather on inauguration day as well. He was a staunch Democrat and had hoped to live to see the first woman President elected. He loved our country and served in WWII and the Korean war. He was 90. In honor of him, John Bentley Wray, I am proud to march with his spirit beside me.
