As always, it was an honor to stand shoulder to shoulder with my co-plaintiffs, those who were in D.C. and those who marched with us in spirit or in one of the hundreds of sister marches around the country. From the most inspiring speech to the smallest smile or joke, they remind me that we have a future, that we will stand for life and for water, and that we will always have each other.
There were lots of different kinds of people there which was fun to see. Lots of people were there inspiring us to keep marching even though it was so hot. There were many cool signs to look at. It felt really good, like a glowing feeling, to be around all of those people who care about what we are fighting for.
From the day that I got there, I knew that it was going to be the experience of a lifetime. Just as a cowgirl when she goes to her first rodeo, or the Midwestern fisherman when he first lays eyes on the ocean, I was seeking new opportunities that I knew would change my perspective on this lawsuit.
Only so many people can fit into a courtroom, but the whole world could be standing outside. So make a sign, lace up your boots, and come march with us on April 29th.
