On Marching

A week ago, women (and men) around the world marched in protest of President Donald Trump. Some say it was the largest demonstration in U.S. history. And among the 125,000+ people that marched in Boston, there was a tiny group of teachers.

There were many signs that were clever and telling and raw, but my favorites were these kickstarter campaign images that celebrate the truth – that diversity is what makes America great. I loved seeing these images cropping up  in footage from marches worldwide.

The march wasn’t perfect. Many faces were missing (for reasons we all need to acknowledge, accept, and act on). It wasn’t perfect, but it was a start. And given the events of Donald Trump’s first week in office, we have a lot more work to do.
