I went to the Women’s March for America in Boston on Saturday.

You guys….it was awesome in the literal sense. I was awed.

So many people of every color, shape, generation, gender. Everyone was happy and positive, courteous and calm.

Boston being Boston, the Common is not a level plane. This was our perspective during the speaking part of the event:

Which was great, of course. And then we moved through the crowd a bit, in search of the friends we were trying to meet, and we came up over a little rise and saw this:

Totally overwhelmed.

As it turns out, even that was but a fraction of the whole crowd. We thought we were towards the back, but in fact we were barely in the middle.  Again, given the terrain the only way to see the full scope of things was from the aerial view.

Estimates vary from 125,000 to 150,000 attended here in Boston. I am happy to report there were no “incidents”.

You know what there WAS?  Thousands and thousands of pink hats.

I am so proud of my city.
