It wasn’t D.C. (where daughter Katie and granddaughter Sophia marched) or Chicago or L.A. or Seattle, but people gathered in the little town of Langley here on Whidbey Island for a local version of the women’s march.
The lady who put out the call for the local march thought she might get 50 people. Instead, hundreds turned out on a sunny and surprisingly warm day. I heard one estimate of 1,200 but it might have been more. The march stretched for blocks.
Other islanders made the trip into Seattle for the bigger march there, but those of us who stayed did our part. We went with our friends Dan and Susanne. It was friendly and generally quiet crowd, though some people sang “We Shall Overcome” and one group was chanting “No KKK, no fascist USA. Dump Trump.”
