Washington DC

I then lived in Omaha Nebraska and was not surrounded by liberal friends but I had to do something because I felt so strongly that this was wrong. So I found a bus that a few people had reserved to take people to DC and decided I must go. I was 56 years old at the time and got on a bus alone with no one I knew on this straight through road trip going half way across the country and I felt like I had found my tribe. We got there early in the morning and it was wonderful to see just how many people felt like I did. We marched all day and when it was over, we got back on the bus to return home. After seeing how many people were there, I was sure they couldn’t ignore us anymore….but I was wrong. It was an amazing experience and even though we didn’t accomplish our goal, I don’t regret it for a second. I just saw a story on Democracy Now on the film “We Are Many” and I had to find out more about it. I am going to look into how I can see or purchase it. I was there!
