My friend Barb sent me a ping this morning:
Solidarity Tie!! We could start a revolution to tie one on every home in Unity for our world, and Human Rights!
I like this.
One of the best outcomes of yesterday’s marches and demonstrations is that we got to see just how many people are as determined, compassionate and angry as we are.
Trump won by .38% of the vote. I’m embarrassed to say the majority of those determining votes came from PA. But here in Pittsburgh, the turnout was spectacular. The organizers expected 400 people to show up. The final number: 25,000. I’m proud to have been one of that number, surrounded by good, decent people whose love of country can not be questioned.
It’s so easy to feel lost and sad and out of step with the country that gave us Trump. But yesterday showed that we are the majority. We are legion. We are ready. We will not go back. Trump does not speak for us. And his supporters should know now that we’re not ready to make nice and accept what is anathema to all that we believe in.

Here are some of my pics from yesterday’s Sister March in Pittsburgh.
(sorry I turned the camera vertical at the end. I keep forgetting this means I have to edit in iMovie later and you all know how much I love to edit)
Barb sent me this option:
Call it “The Pussy Bow”.
