… well, the Swart clan anyway. Family members marched in Seattle, Oakland, Boston, and DC.

Here is a family reporter from DC:

It was a great and important day today in Washington DC and the Women`s March.  We wanted to take Metro but when we got to our station, the queue was about a 1/2 mile long coming out of the station (Uber was about $70!).  We wound up driving (easy) and parked in a parking garage.  Lots of incredibly clever signs so look closely at the pictures in the link, many are funny, scary, poignant, and everything between.  The crowd was huge (a few hundred thousand at least I would guess) and things got extremely tight at times in the throngs but everyone was so nice and loving.  No signs of anger (except at Trump) and just a good time peacefully demonstrating and exercising our First Amendment rights – very patriotic and very American!  Hope all other demonstrating marchers today around the globe had an an equally positive experience standing up for important issues they believe in.
