Deeply saddened I couldn’t justify the week it would take me to recover from the trip to the March in DC. Ashamed I felt I couldn’t even attend the nearby Chicago event. Finding this website was profound. Now, as I join (through Facebook) friends who are marching in Washington, I am a real, legitimate part of this historic event in my own right. This means the world to me.
