A WORLD of ALL SAYING – This is what we must do to change the pendulum to swing back having the courage to care

January 24, 2017

“To those whom are confused or surprised about why millions of people showed up to protest this weekend. . .
“Women are marching because our children deserve a secretary of education that cares about education.
Women are marching because our family and friends deserve healthcare.
Did you know that before the ACA, newborns in the NICU would hit their lifetime caps on health insurance coverage? That’s right, Babies who had never felt the sun on their skin could no longer get health insurance.
Women are marching because domestic violence crisis centers and after school programs deserve funding.
Women are marching because our citizens have the RIGHT to clean air, clean water, and national parks.
Women are marching because we believe the children protected by the DREAM act deserve to be here and they should absolutely live with their parents, not in orphanages and foster homes.
Women are marching because we have the right to: it’s the FIRST AMENDMENT (not the second or third, it’s number one).
We have the right to and the Patriotic Duty to protest when we see the government not adhering to ITS duty to govern FOR the people.
We are marching because we are entitled to make our own decisions for our bodies, our families and our careers.
We are marching because we don’t want our sons and daughters to believe that women should be objectified by our leaders.
We are marching because we have the right to an honest, fair, and transparent government who protects EVERY man, woman, and child- despite their faith, sexual preference, and station in life- with dignity, respect, and humanity.
Saying that we’re whining, throwing temper tantrums, or that we’re immature, or that we need to get over it will not stop us. It will not stop us from fighting for you. And we are fighting for you because you deserve these rights too.
We’re not marching because Trump won. We’re marching because we are not going to give up the rights we’ve fought for generations to receive. And we’re not giving up easily.
Anyone who thinks we’re marching because we lost just simply isn’t listening. We’re fighting because we refuse to lose more.”
