World marches to support women’s rights: January 21, 2017

Our family had friends and associates marching in the Women's March in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and San Francisco. We are proud of them and their peaceful marches. Their messages are complex and wide ranging but can be boiled down to wanting the best for humanity in all its forms and for our planet. Thank you all for staying safe and non-violent in your actions. Thank you for following the First Amendment and making sure your voices are heard. Let this lead to inclusive conversation and cooperation across many lines, including party lines in the U.S.

Marches took place on all 7 continents on earth. That has to be a record. Somehow, I imagine, unless things change quickly and suddenly, it is a record that will be topped in the near future.
