Happy Sunday America…
Today I was going to share another outfit with you from last week but with everything going on within our country I decided to do something different last minute. Now this isn’t going to be a one sided rant about politics, I personally am not one for that converstion. What I AM going to talk about is the love, strength, and togetherness I had the opportunity to witness yesterday not only in Boston, but across America.
The Women’s March.
Last week I was having dinner at my dads house before I headed back to school and I overheard my dad telling my younger sister, Maria, to be careful on Saturday and so on. Not even realizing what Saturday was I jumped to conclusions that she was going to a political protest and I instantly showed my disapproval and unkind comments. (Sorry, love you) Fast forward to Friday and I kept hearing all this talk about The women’s march right here in Boston. Like I said I’m not huge into politics and wasn’t really aware of this event. So I did my research and learned how important this march really is, and I wanted to be a part of it.
Although I arrived in the midst of the event I witnessed what I needed to. Thousands of women, men, and children coming together as one to not only fight for our rights but to support one another no matter the gender, race, sexuality, or age.
“We can whimper. We can whine. Or we can fight back! We come here to stand shoulder to shoulder to make clear: We are here! We will not be silent! We will not play dead! We will fight for what we believe in!” – Senator Elizabeth Warren: Women’s March, Boston.
I am so honored to have witnessed something so prominent in history. As a young woman myself, we are the future. And to all the women in my life, thank you for teaching me that the sky is not only the limit but to have strength and love in everything I do. Never have I been so proud to be part of a community. Unity looks oh so good on us….
(Shout out to my sister Maria and cousin Samantha -pictured below- for always being such strong women in my life and fighting for their beliefs as well as always opening my eyes to some serious girl power, you both inspire me everyday)
