Women's March in D.C.
The March was spectacular.We took the Metro into D.C. after finding the 2 end stations, Greenbelt, and Carrolton were closed because the huge parking lots were full. At the station we waited in line for over an hour to get subway tickets. Fortunately for me I had a senior pass that I had got years ago but unfortunately my friend, Carole, and son, Jim, didn't have tickets. We walked for an hour and a half before we got to the Mall so we didn't hear the speeches. I really wanted to see Angela Davis. At about 4 PM the group, we were in, was heading to the White House and we turned and went back to the Subway and stood in line to get on. It was a great experience, very upbeat. Some signs were so clever. About 10 percent men, a lot of family groups covering several generations. People who had walkers and little kids too. On the way home, on the Turnpike, we had to stand again in lines because of all the women returning home. Everyone was in good spirits. Today, Hubby has been finding out how much it would cost to have the postcards printed from the 10 days in action plan.
