patricialaydorsey And now the real work begins, the work of active resistance born not of hatred but love. in the women's march yesterday i saw countless signs that said "love trumps hatred." it was as if we were pointing our finger at the man saying, "now you, sir, must replace your hatred with love." but what about me? what about the hatred i feel towards this man and his supporters? how do i replace that hatred with love? we need a whole new category of self help books, ones that address the challenges of not only surviving the next four years but learning from them. this is an opportunity that is too easy to ignore. i cannot continue to project my hatred onto donald trump and his supporters. i must recognize the hatred within myself, decide what i want to do with it, and then tackle the tough self-work of change. only then will i be free to resist injustice and oppression with love. it is no coincidence that at the rev. dr. martin luther king jr's 88th birthday commemoration last monday, i bought his 1967 book titled, "where do we go from here: chaos or community?" fifty years later, the choice is still ours.

patricialaydorsey I will be sharing more photos from the detroit sister march tomorrow, but tonight i want to leave you with a portrait i took of two wonderful women i met at the conclusion of our gathering. i thank everyone who marched today in washington dc and across the world. and i also want to thank everyone who was with us in solidarity, especially those of you who have so kindly "liked" and commented on the millions (literally) of pics we marchers posted on ig. we made history today and in doing so, we changed our world. now we know that we can come together and give one another strength and support anytime we choose. let's hear it for people power!

Over 4000 women, men, girls and boys joined detroit's sister march at wayne state university in solidarity with the women's march on washington. yesterday the clouds wept when you-know-who took the oath of office, but today? the sun shone on us all and it was so warm we couldn't believe it was january. now i know we will be all right because we are united, strong and vocal. no one is going to push us around, especially not the one we say is #notourpresident!!!
