Photos and Signs from Women’s March Denver

Today, people from all over the world gathered in their cities in a show of solidarity for equal rights. It was called the “Women’s March,” but in my opinion, it should have been the “People’s March,” because it put on display all the issues we have been wrestling with since Donald Trump was elected president (and before). Here in Denver, they were expecting 40,000 people and that number exploded to well over 100,000, with some estimates as high as 200,000.

We found it to be a bit overwhelming, of course, with all those people – but the atmosphere was all about love. A huge variety of signs, as you will see in the gallery below, with creative flair and humor. Today was so uplifting for us! We sincerely thank the organizers, the police, the city of Denver and everyone who made the Women’s March possible.

    I love the NO HATE picture. I think we should all think long and hard about this. Those two simple words. So with that said, unfriending people that voted for Trump seems like HATE, and possibly bigotry to me. I wasn’t exactly sure of the definition of bigotry so I asked Siri. big.ot.ry-intolerance towards those who hold different opinions from oneself.

      Hey Adam, nice to hear from you after all these years. I can see where you are coming from but I have a few things to mention regarding the “if you voted for Trump, unfriend me” graphic that I shared on my personal Facebook. One, I later admitted that I probably wouldn’t have shared it had I not been drunk and angry at the time but I still stood by the sentiment. Meaning this: we don’t have to be *friends* with anyone that we don’t want to. The idea that I have to be friends with people who ideas I so vehemently disagree with is pretty crazy. Also, if you look up the full definition of bigotry: “a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially: one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.” Much like Trump acts toward women, blacks, Muslims, Hispanics and pretty much anyone who is not rich and white. But, back to the graphic I posted regarding Trump voters, I listened to comments about how unfair parts of what I said was, and also then asked a follow-up question as to what people thought Trump was doing well (and pretty much the best answer to that was “there will be record turnout in 2018.”) I don’t find that intolerant but I am sorry if you do.

        Nice to her from you as well. Hope all is well with your family. I personally am feeling very positive about the future of our country. I find that I’m am able to be friends with many different walks of life, blacks, whites, muslims, rednecks, country folk, folks who voted for Obama. I might not always agree with what they say but I’m willing to hear it and have a civil conversation. Ok maybe not always civil,but to generalize a group is bigotry any way you look at it. I wish you the best over the next four years.
