It was a mixed weekend.
Partly due to the mixed weather. Beautiful sunshine and springlike temperatures on Saturday, followed by a dark and rainy Sunday. But mostly due to the Women’s Marches all over the country and the world. It was emotional yet confusing at the same time. It makes you think, is it really necessary to go on the streets to protest in 2017? And the answer is yes, it really is more than ever in light of the new president of this country.
However, it was a beautiful and empowering sight to see so many women, men, families, girls and boys coming, walking and standing together peacefully.
It was touching to see how many people had made and brought their own signs. One of my favorites read ‘Hate does not make America great’ and it really is so true.
We’ve then enjoyed the fine weather with everyone in the city, took a stroll along the Esplanade and walked home through Kendall/MIT.
