Boston Women’s March

A beautiful day for a peaceful rally and march on Boston Common. Specific politics aside, I was so proud to be part of a peaceful protest/rally in which many different opinions were expressed in so many varying ways. I was proud of ‘our city’ for showing my children that they have a voice in our country and that there are civil was to demonstrate. Everyone we encountered today was polite, passionate and engaged. They spoke to my children with respect and kindness and in a crowd of >150,000 there was no pushing, shoving, harassment or arrests. It was a monumental civic moment.

“Let us remember we are all part of one American family. We are united in common values, and that includes belief in equality under the law, basic respect for public order, and the right of peaceful protest.” Barack Obama

Preparation

Our little sign elves were busy today getting ready for the Women’s March in Boston this Saturday. Maybe we’ll see you there!

Esme’s is a quote from Hamilton, “And when I meet Thomas Jefferson, I’m’a compel him to include women in the sequel!”

Catherine’s reads, “Girls just wanna have FUN-damental rights.”

Rainbow Bright!

 The month of December, somehow, seemed shorter than advertised. And, thus, Esme received a big ball of yarn under the tree instead of something hand knit. The upswing is that she got to help in the choosing of the pattern and project and I get to knit it in January without the busyness of Christmas looming over me.
