Women's March on Washington

Praise God that millions of women will be marching on January 21 to protest the dt presidency.

My daughter Marie will be flying to the march in Washington, D.C., from Oakland, California.

I will be marching in downtown Los Angeles, as will many of my friends.

Even in Cortez, Colorado, near the four-corners intersection of Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado, there will be a march.  Karla Brown, wife of my second-cousin Morrison Brown, will be participating.   

It's likely that most people in this rural city with a population of 8,568 voted for Trump in the 2016 election, but some brave souls will be out there standing up against a man taking office who is racist, misogynist, a narcissist, and an admirer of Vladimir Putin, the ex-KGB official who came into power by killing some 200-300 opponents.

"He is so diametrically opposite to everything I believe in," says Morrison.  

When he heard that Marie is flying to Washington to take part, he said, "Tell Marie that I've never met her, but I'd love to hug her."
