Tomorrow is the Women's March on Washington. No, it is not a march to protest our new president. It is *technically* a march for women's rights. But please know that it is bigger than that. It is a march for human rights. Mine, yours, our children's.

I will be there, and I hope you know I am representing all of us. Because we all matter. Think good thoughts - I am somewhat concerned that not all will behave.

Sleep tight. ;)

I wonder what "women's rights" means?
I wonder what is the perceived risk - what threatens these women marching?

Finally home, 24 hours later! As I'm sure everyone has heard, it was huge. Very Bigly. Not just in DC, but across our great country and the world. I have never seen anything like it - 500,000 people - all ages, colors, creeds, genders/gender identities, is a sea of pink hats and nary a sign of violence. I don't think anyone was even arrested. Let's face it - you have a huge crowd like that? The odds of a few bad eggs are high. And I no longer move fast enough to get out of the way.

Rights? Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness for all of us. That thing that makes America great. ;)

Those rights are secured by our constitution. Buncha FB showoffs IMO. And stay off my lawn!

The constitution secures very little and is subject to the political environment and interpretation of the day.
