I've been so busy with Sacramento real estate lately that when my husband mentioned the Sacramento Women's March on Friday, it had been in the back of my mind but I hadn't thought of it much during the week. His bringing it up, just as a usual event suggestion like I suppose we should go, kind of statement, brought the situation front and center for me.
Absolutely we should attend. Even though I haven't personally participated in a demonstration for 30 years. And I immediately clicked on the Go Fund Me website to make a financial contribution and to register for the march. Unlike some real estate agents, I am not afraid to put my name to a register that stands up for human rights, justice and protecting the earth.
If I hadn't just returned from Hawaii with another trip planned on the horizon to see the butterfly migration in Mexico, I would have flown to Washington, D.C. Seemed the best way to take care of my real estate business and attend the March was to do it in Sacramento. Besides, this was a sister march. And there were other marches worldwide in solidarity with Washington, D.C. that amounted to millions of people in attendance. Toronto, Mexico City, London, Paris, Berlin, Syndey and more, even the Antarctic. Those numbers give us hope.
