Last Saturday (January 20th) Rajan and I took part in the Women's March in Sacramento, and the turn-out was wonderful: An estimated 36,000 was in the crowd before the day was over.
Normally I confine my activities to emails and phone calls and social media, but this was one event we didn't want to miss. It was important to "stand up and be counted" as the saying goes.
We started out near the end of the line in this picture above.
Below are a few more pictures from the day:

|I enjoyed the humor of this.|
|The crowd was peaceful, no arrests|
|Everyone was of good cheer|
|What a sight!|
|Listening raptly to the speakers.|
A great morning and early afternoon. We left a little after 2:00 but the beat went on.
How about you? Did you march? Do you know someone who did? Do you have other issues that inspire you to protest or march? Or do you prefer to write about issues dear to your heart instead? How do you express your deepest concerns about things?
