hey guys! it's been a minute since my last post. it wasn't intentional. but mama needed a break. i needed time to absorb and process the fiasco that has been the last few months. i needed to be more present. i took lot less pictures and just lived my life without thinking about how i would write about it later.
and i just needed to just watch bad TV.
after my unplanned hiatus from it all, i am easing back into things with a few photos from a day i will never forget. a day when my little family marched along with 750,000 people through the streets of downtown LA. a day that gave me back the hope i had lost in the past few months.
we participated in the women's march in los angeles, which started at pershing square and ended at city hall. we parked a million blocks away and walked.
and held my crudely made sign with pride on the way.
and saw only this small ground of cops the entire day. most people i spoke to saw zero cops. not a single incident of violence was reported.
what we did see was a lot of people.
and a lot of clever and insightful signs.
the boys took it all in. i know they probably won't remember much or any if it but it i couldn't let them miss being a part of this. they will thank me later. i know it.
because our children are the future.
and the future depends on what happens now.
classic footwear at pershing square playground!
i really don't know what else to say about the experience except thank you. thank you to the millions of people all over the world who marched, physically and in sprirt, with me. thank you for reminding me that there is enough of us who will fight for what is right. in conclusion, i beg you all to love one another. respect each other and stop the hate. love will win anyway. it always does. sometimes you just have to fight a little harder and a lot louder for it.
