Reading and Remembering


I hope all of you will read Trudy Krisher's ON THE MARCH.

And then recommend it to others.

Reading this wonderful book had me remembering my own experiences as a woman involved in The Women's March in 2017 which I wrote about here:

More than 3 million men and women world wide marched that day.

It was not a march limited to Washington, DC where an estimated 500,000 marched, more than doubling the number of people originally expected.

That it became a world wide event, crossing lines of gender, race, religion, location, and party politics should never be forgotten.  

This was voices speaking.  Loudly.  Firmly.  

My hope is that those voices continue to speak.  

To be heard.  

To be remembered.

I have had a hard time, even now, explaining what that day meant to me.

Trudy Krisher nails it.

Thank you, Kaye, for that wonderful review. Yes, I hope women - and their daughters and sisters and cousins - take inspiration from my book. We are still having to 'march,' so the book reminds us of the importance of it! Trudy Krisher
