I have to say that I am really proud of how the marches went today. They were peaceful, they were organized and they got their points across. People of all races, sexuality, genders and religion were there to show President Trump that love is better than hate and everybody deserves to be treated equally. Celebrities spoke to the crowd, to tell them why they were standing beside them.
These marches are a great way to give exposure to the social issues facing us today – the biggest being the inequality of human rights across America. The number of people who showed up and gathered around the world must have been 10x the number of people who attended Trump’s inauguration. Senators, like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, showed support for the movement, which can only be a positive thing.
I hope that people are slowly starting to become aware of why a Trump presidency scares so many. I hope that people will speak up against the President if he does something reprehensible against any social group. I believe that united, we can make a difference. We can protect the rights of all humans to be treated equally. I truly hope that progress made (for LGBTQs, for women, and for immigrants) won’t be overturned.
