I was there to protest Kent State, I worked in support of gay rights in the 70s and worked to shine a light on our environment with the first Earth Day. My mobility issues keep me from participating in a March on January 20th.
I march in support of all those bullied and all those fighting prejudice of any kind. I march on in support of all those who will surely fall in harms way and those who are too young or unable to know what is happening around them. I march on to help us know what steps we can take to make sure we all are ok and stay ok. Lastly, I march to urge us to pause when one of us falls and our light dims, reach out and rekindle the spark. Please let’s take care of each other as we work together to do all we can do to take care of our country. With a nod to Helen Reddy;
I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an’ pretend
‘Cause I’ve heard it all before
And I’ve been down there on the floor
No one’s ever gonna keep me down again.
