on saturday morning i joined thousands of people in memphis and hundreds of thousands around the world to march in solidarity and in support of equality, democracy, diversity, and humanity. it was a beautiful morning, and i was surrounded by friends and strangers all walking in support of one another and in support of those who could not.
our march began at judge d’army bailey courthouse downtown, a building named after a son of memphis and a prominent civil rights activist, and ended outside the national civil rights museum, a building that has been transformed from the motel where dr martin luther king, jr, was killed into a museum honoring and celebrating the fight for justice and equality that continues to this day. the symbolism of both points was not lost on those of us participating, and i am so proud to have been a part of the day.
there is still plenty of work to be done, but for today i am going to celebrate all of the wonderful humans in my life.
