During the presidential campaign of 2016 Donald Trump promised that he would unite the people of the United States.  On Saturday, January 21st, that promise came true.  He united not only the US but the rest of the world, to stand together in a unifying global Women’s March to support human rights.

The Women’s March on Denver was part of that global proclamation that violation of anyone’s human rights will not be tolerated.

The March was an effort to send a message of peace, love, and unity to all that would listen. In Denver, it’s estimated that over 100,000 people participated in the peaceful march. WomensMarch.com estimates that over four million women, children, and men took part in peaceful marches across all 7 continents.

Unlike Trump’s rallies, which have had a fraction of the number of people in attendance, the Women’s March in Denver, and all over the world, was violence free.

The marches in the US were part of a global change that began yesterday. Some are calling it the start of a revolution but everyone is saying that it’s time for people to join together and fight for human rights for everyone.

What I saw was women, men, children, immigrants, Native Americans, Muslims, African Americans, Latinos, Asians, and members of the LGBT community, and people of all ages and classes coming together peacefully and loudly stating that we’ve had enough — we’re going to fight for everyone’s human rights.
