Steps in the March
Yesterday I marched in the Cincinnati Sister March of the Women's March. It was amazing, it was invigorating, it was hard sometimes.
For me, it wasn't a President Trump protest, let me make that clear. I respect the presidency. It was something different, something much bigger in my heart.
I marched because I have a granddaughter and I love her with all my heart. I want her to live in a peaceful world with clean air. I want her to live in a world that respects people of all colors, all religions, her LGBTQ brothers and sisters. I want her to have health care and reproductive choices. I want her to live in a world with good public education at all levels, I want her to have equal pay for equal work. I want her world to respect people with disabilities. And I want her to respect. And I hope that one reason she will respect is because that’s the kind of world she sees in me. That’s why I marched. Maybe a whole world is too much to ask for, I don’t know. But I can ask for a country, that’s not too much to march for.
