Today was the Women’s March on Washington, and Anchorage turned out to the tune of 2,000 – 3,500 people. It was an incredible feeling to be part of such a massive, peaceful movement and I couldn’t stop smiling as we marched in the snow and as I saw photos of events all over the world rolling through my Facebook feed.
For me participating meant standing up for what I believe in: democracy, equality, kindness, freedom of speech, being a welcoming community, and making choices from a place of love instead of hate.
You inspire me, Anchorage – here’s to hope, and to being the change we want to see in the world.
