    I know, it feels so good to surround them all with the relief of the left coast. Maybe not as sublime as Hawai’i, but far from the madness of D.C. I hope they are loving the women’s resistance movement worldwide! In their honor, and in a massive voice to honor the planet and her life force! Only women can do that!

          Daughter unit has Aquarius ascendant as well! I perceive it to be a sort of personal Equinox, energetically more potent than a solar return.

    It’s kind of frustrating that the march in SF doesn’t start until 3pm Pacific. It’s 2 hours of speakers then a candlelight march down Market Street. Hope it’s as big as some of the ones we’re seeing today all over the world.

    Wow i’m so moved by this movement and i do believe The Obamas encouraged us to be decent and in order, and fighting and standing up for what we believe in. Oh yes, the Obamas may not be the first family, but they definitely are leaving their mark and leaving a legacy. Again i say thank you to the first family who we love and admire so much, the thought of you make me smile. Love and Peace, and may God bless you real good 🙂

Welcome to the Future. For those of us who can no longer participate in person, but carry the pride of marching and standing in solidarity way back when, be at Peace with ourselves, we raised our voices and showed our strength, now we pass the Light on to those whose footsteps will reach far into the Future. It is their time and they are rising up to meet in the millions. What a wonderful beautiful happy day! ❤️🙏🏼

    • 82 CEB

      I still have fears for his safety because he can rally people from around the world. His influence was felt in the marches and rallies today where many speakers echoed his words. His example has also helped people to stand up and act out for what he believes. He will be livig in D.C, and even if he never says anything, he will still be an influence. I have a real fear that Putin has put him on the KGB’s hit list to kill him and to find a way to limit his influence. Putin lost in every confrontation with PBO and I know this burns. Michelle’s influence as well was part of the day as I heard three speakers invoke her name and two of them added her name to the honored ancestors. My prayers remain fervent and frequent for their safety.

        I am so thankful that he signed that bill in 2013 restoring SS detail for former presidents for life. I’m with you, not as worried as when he was in office but there will always be a risk with him. That may grow if the protests keep on going, which hopefully will happen. We have to turn this energy into an electoral mandate. We only need 24 seats in 2018.

        Very well said, Africatimes2! There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this country- and probably the entire wold– will miss President Obama. I personally know that I will miss his brilliant intellect; his empathy and compassion fort the oppressed , marginalized and abused people; his deep respect for the Constitution and the American ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence. More importantly for me, is how President Obama, and First Lady, Michelle Obama treated people from all walks of life. They made the White House a people’s house where all Americans were welcome!

        made the White House a truly “People’s house, where every one was welcome! Second, the Obamas

    Need to report on the Oklahoma Women’s March, from which I just returned. Don’t have a picture, but our capitol was surrounded by 12,000 marchers, when 4,000 were expected. Not just women. At least a quarter or more were men, and whole families were there. For our state, this is a big number. Everyone was so upbeat and friendly…..such a good atmosphere and feeling.

    I went with people from my church. One lady is 90 years old, and marched in the 60s. Two other people marched in the 60s, and were thrilled to be at it again.

    Three invocations were given (This is Oklahoma, everything opens with prayer) The first was a Cheyenne-Arapaho Native American, who gave a blessing, then a young Muslim woman read from the Koran, and then our wonderful associate minister (UCC) prayed. Have you ever heard cheers during a prayer? Well, they happened in her prayer today. She hit all the points…..At the end she said what our benediction ends with every Sunday: “Pray for peace, wage a little peace, and love one another, EVERY SINGLE OTHER.” Well, those of us standing together said the last phrase with her, as we do at church. The people around us asked if she was from our church, which church, we answered yes, told them our church, then said “She’s ours!”

    I’m getting chills looking at the other pictures. Several women had daughters marching in other cities……Dallas and Austin for two. Oh yes, people were also registering voters.

    I think DT has no idea what he has wrought…..the tiger has been awakened.

    • January 21, 2017 at 4:04 pm

      Thanks for this report Carolyn! It is starting to appear that PBO leaving office followed by DT has finally caught people’s attention. I am so thrilled that one of my nieces is marching in San Diego today. Her first political action. I don’t know about others, and I don’t want to paint with too broad of a brush, but for me personally the lack of political involvement by women in the upcoming generation has driven me out of my mind. My daughter, nieces, etc are finally starting realize that what was gained by our generation can be taken away from them. It has been gratifying on the one hand that they take these rights for granted, it means we had some pretty good successes, but we always knew they could be in jeopardy. Certainly the young women in my family had not really absorbed that previously.

      Oh Carolyn, what a great report. I was scheduled to go here but I have been sick and knew I couldn’t be healthy, so have stayed home and followed on the internet. All this gives me such hope. It’s not going to be easy. With the Repubs in charge everywhere, they are wanting to make all of us pay. All they do is take away rights.

      So happy that even Oklahoma understands how scary this all is.

    Got back from Londdon where I joined the March for women it was awesome. There were thousands of us. The phoneye president is far from popular here.. Also before I left for the March I took my dogs out and met some like minded dog walkers, one of whom joined me in London. I had never met her before today. That just shows the strength feeling over here. Don’t be fooled by our idiot political leaders,, that man will never be accepted.

    OMG…this SOB is a sick man. Just saw him talking about his crowd size yesterday at the inaug saying it was a million and a half
    in attendance but the media lied and said it was 250,000. Oh, did I mention that he was addressing the CIA for the first time and that was what he was focusing on…his crowd size!!!!!!! God Help Us.

      OMG doesn’t do justice what I just witnessed, this fucking guy is beyond a piece of work. He talks about the size of the inauguration and how many times he’s been on the cover of Time magazine and how the press is so dishonest. Midway through the speech talks about not taking the oil from Iraq in the war. And then he makes the comment about maybe getting another chance to take the oil. This fucking guy is a sick puppy.

      Pitiful! The fool does not know that what he cannot duplicate is PBO’s character, intelligence, and skills. The people respond to the light inside of PBO that shines through all of his work in our behalf, from the least of us to the most gifted. The Deplorable one has only ignorance, greed, and vanity. Most people see him for what he is and rightfully shuns him. When all of the totals come in it will show that millions of people all over the world stood up the day after his piss-poor passage into power to send a message of defiance. Even if only a small percentage stick with it after today, he will be met with a strong resistance. Here is the last chance for congress to get on the right side of history. They do not have to kiss his ring or lick his boots (or those of their corporate overlords) if they join with the people.

    Just a funny that I saw in London. Not sure if it has the same meaning in the USA, but the word trump is a slang word for a fart , there was a placard stating that . Also, in East London rhyming slang is used e.g ‘apples and pears’ means stairs. Another one is ‘trump’ is rhyming slang for dump ( which js another word we use for a shit). I guess the cretin lives up to his name. Excuse the potty talk but I just had to share.

    Micah 6:8: “What does the Lord require of you, to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.”
    Today with my family we walked humbly with many other walkers who are doing justice and love kindness. I just returned from the wondrous Women’s Sister March in Salem at the Capitol Mall. There was a huge crowd of enthusiastic marchers overflowing the mall. I was so moved, frequently to tears by those present, children, young adults, parents, and seniors. I demonstrated and marched with my beloved family, my wife, daughter, our five year old granddaughter. My granddaughter made her own poster, beautifully drawn and colored. The words said “We All Share” at the top and at the bottom the word “Love.” I may get a chance to post it later. I was so proud of my family standing for goodness and kindness in our world when we are now threatened by our own national government with a racist bigoted brutality that promotes a culture of rape and spreads hate everywhere. We are the true face of America.
