Back in November I noticed a new group was having a meeting to plan a march for January 21. I went to their first planning meeting, at Social Tap in Ventura. I’m pretty sure that more people showed up than the organizers anticipated. Personally I felt so much better knowing that I was not alone in my feelings of needing to do something after our travesty of an election. Although I was present at that first meeting and hosted another, the scope of my help was in inviting others to the march. Just like every other march that happened yesterday, way more people than anticipated showed up! I’ll need to step up my involvement in the days, weeks, months, and years to come.
Today I am personally thankful for: Catherine and Kathleen for organizing yesterday’s Justice for All March; for all my clergy colleagues who participated in marches everywhere; for all the women and men who came out yesterday…it was beautiful.
