Sometimes a theme develops in your work even though you don’t intend it. The theme this protest season is clearly quotations, and this first sign quotes Barack Obama. The flip side of the sign says, “How Many Deaths Will It Take Till We Learn That Too Many People Have Died?” Those of you of a certain age will recognize Bob Dylan’s immortal song. You can only carry a sign like this if you’re visibly older, which luckily we are!
These will be tape together back to back. And finally, a late effort is a quotation from LES MISERABLES, and its flip side. I’m hoping to meet a friend to give this sign to.
And, finally, some photos at the march itself.We were standing near the National Gallery of Art but the crowds were so thick there was no good vantage point.
This is Laurie Mann, my husband Larry and myself, on our way to a very late lunch. I would say that this march was somewhat less crowded than the Women’s March. Even though my health is nowhere near as good I was able to stand up for six hours or so straight, with some walking in the intervals.
