First, I’d like to say I am not worried in the least about our march being dangerous. I mostly posted my tear gas article because I thought it was funny that I’m packing these things. But I have faith things will go as they should. I really do. So no fretting for me, just be excited! I am hoping this march will be the beginning of something great!
In preparation for many hours on the road I have gotten a few books on tape- Rules for Radicals should be poignant. But I’m most excited to listen to Me Talk Pretty One Day. Nothing like 5 hours of laughter to get ready to change some minds.
I’m not going to D.C. to look for a literal fight, but I’ve heard there may be groups there trying to instigate violence. Lovely James O’Keef and his lot among others. So I’m prepared.
Visine, bandana and subglasses. Even though a former special forces dude assured me tear gas isn’t that bad- I’m going to play it safe.
Hoping our march is peaceful, affirming and impactful.
Tomorrow morning I’m off to D.C.! Night all!
My D.C. Swag came in today. Now it’s time to start packing! I’m starting to get excited, but with the running around for kids-I’m feeling a bit rushed.
I’ll try to get my packing started tonight while listening to Betsy DeVos– I can only hear it-but I know there has been a concern of her record and support for those reporting sexual assault. There has been a “Dear Betsy” campaign on YouTube from survivors. She was just questioned about this. This is only one of many concerning things about her. Oh, and grizzly bears.
Well now I’m just delaying my packing- time to get to work! Gotta get started because I have a bunch of This Pussy Grabs Back necklaces to make and not a lot of time.
