Monumentous got added to my vocabulary yesterday.  It was used by a CNN reporter when I was listening, live, while driving kids to and fro to their Saturday activities.

I was hoping that someone had taken all the aerial shots -of the sea of people who participated in all the marches- and put them all together in one big collage.  I’m hopeful that is coming soon.  For now… this is my visual of Monumentous…


I have a notebook to jot down ideas for this blog.  I pulled it out and started jotting down my takeaways as I was listening and watching the live feed back at home.

  • Gloria Steinem’s speech “We the PEOPLE”
  • Scarlett Johansson’s PASSION
  • Alicia Keys FIRE
  • Boston – NYC -Oakland – Chicago – all the underestimates of participation
  • Pink Sea – Seattle aerial 11:08am (took my breath away)
  • Los Angeles Aerial 11:09am (I grew up there….worked near Pershing Square)
  • Pink Hats
  • “It’s a march that is so big, they can’t march”.
  • “Shows how democracy could and should work”.
  • “Squandered last two months…”
  • I live in a country where this CAN and DID come TOGETHER.

I was one of those who HID during the election season.  As the weekend comes to an end, I am committing to being more active.  I don’t know that that will look like (besides that fact I will be sober during the adventure)…

At the very least, it is time for me to write my leaders who have decision making power.
