Women's March on London

See those smiling faces?  We were proud and excited to be part of an estimated 100,000 people marching in protest of Donald Trump's inauguration, or coronation as a friend described it.  It felt good to publically demonstrate our opposition to the tyranny that is gathering in Washington.  The march began at Grovesnor Square beneath the US Embassy where speeches lasted 1 1/2 hours.  We were shoulder to shoulder and heel to heel.  There were newborn babies, people of color, men, gays, old and young.  The only head gear visible to me were pink pussy hats and stocking caps.  People were enthusiastic and polite.  Despite the cramped conditions and the inability to even move at times, no one pushed or screamed "Make America Great Again". There was singing, chanting and cars honking.  It was a day of vigilance.  From Grovesnor Square we marched over 2 miles through Mayfair to Trafalgar Square.  Wayne was amazed by the enthusiasm and singing of the fellow marchers.  NOW we must see what goes forward.
