Still on a natural high from yesterday's March in D.C....
When I got the email back in November, about plans for the March, immediately I felt that stir in my belly. You know that feeling, the feeling that tells you your spirit just stirred. I knew then, that I had to look into it. And Because I'm not the most spontaneous woman in the world, I had to let the thought sit with me and literally meditate on the thought of going to the March. At the time, I didn't know anyone else going. I forwarded the email to other women, that I would have loved to see at my side and I thought there was a chance of them being able to go. Still I knew that it didn't matter who else was in... I was going. I didn't even tell my husband right away, cause I didn't want his opinion right away. I knew who I was doing this for, and it had nothing to do with anyone else's opinion good or bad, I was out! As the date neared, I prayed and called on all of my guardian angels then left it alone. Only thinking positive things when it came to mind.
We all showed up to the bus before 5 am. Energized and holding signs. Random cars passing and laying on their horns upon seeing our F- Trump posters. This of course sends our crowd into a massive roar, each time!
There was no traffic coming or going all the way to D.C... Unbelievable I know! We were all urged to "buddy-up" with another person or 2 or 3... You'll exchange info and These people will be your partners for the day. Well, my group turned out to be 7 other amazing women. (This size not recommended by our bus captain by the way) All of us were Moms and focused on being safe, making our impact and getting home to our families. Walking through and around hundreds of thousands of other people, got real tricky at times. We often walked arm and arm, and other times holding hands while taking baby steps just to find an opening to walk through. Once you let any space come between you and the person you're with, you might as well just wave goodbye.. cause they were gone. I thank those women like they thank me. For being a hand to hold and a familiar face in a sea of other women. #whyimarch #melanin #blackgirlmagic #naturalbeauty #marchonwashington
