The best thing that happened to me at the Women's March in Philadelphia yesterday was when a couple of young girls, between the ages of 9 and 10 walked with me aways. We had come together because we were carrying similar posters of paintings of "We the People," by Shepard Fairey. As we walked one of the youngest girls said to me: "I can't believe that we still have to do this now." It took me a few seconds to understand that she meant that it was unbelievable that we had to march for women's rights in 2017! I hugged her, and replied, "I know, I know." Such a young girl. Such wisdom. Such understanding.
I realized that after 8 years, after being used to a President, who had our back, who talked to us with intelligence and compassion - there is no turning back. Maybe for a year or two ... but no longer. Our youngest children are way too aware. They are not going to take it!
