Saturday was an incredible day of solidarity, respect, democracy and outrage. There were many causes and many chants. The people came from all walks but we walked together and supported one another. And it was mind-blowing.
As you might know, the New York City Women’s March (one of 636 such marches around the world) began near the United Nations, proceeded south down Second Avenue, went west on 42nd Street to Fifth Avenue, and then went north up Fifth Avenue finishing at Trump Tower. It was huge – hundreds of thousands of men, women and children joined together for this momentous occasion.
Rather than describe what I saw and what I felt, I’ll share the photos. Keep an eye out for Grand Central Terminal and St. Patrick’s Cathedral among other notable landmarks.
The signs were great. Some were a little raucous, others were simply about love, justice or equality. I did not get to photograph one of my favorite signs – it said only this: RUTH, DON’T DIE.
The words resonated around the world and I was so happy to be a tiny part of this incredible day.
What will be next? Where will this lead? I don’t know for certain. But I an certain that this is just the beginning!
