Okay, it is Day Two… we are all searching through FaceBook to look for pictures of marches across the world, find out how many were there in support of LOVE and denouncing Trumps hateful ways, and basking in the glow of rallying millions to stand together. Now what? Perhaps, like me, you live in a town where the majority of people have a different idea, that you are more alone in your opinions than you were as you marched yesterday. What can YOU do to keep the movement going and to create a dialogue?
Wear your hat! If you didn’t have a pussy hat at the march yesterday it is not too late. Make one today… it is so easy. Just a long pink rectangle folded over and sewn up the sides… I’ll attach a link to the pattern… if you can’t knit or crochet, you can just get some pink fleece and make two seams. Wear it when you go out, show that you are in solidarity with the marchers without saying a word. You don’t have to wear a shirt that says something controversial ~ it is just a hat… and if people watched any news yesterday, they will know what it means and if they have a different point of view, it just might spark a conversation (hopefully not a confrontation).
People who were on the fence or didn’t vote in the election will be the most easy to talk to… they are the first people to begin that conversation with…
So, on Day Two start talking (or keep talking)… keep wearing your hat! I have to dry mine out first… it is soaked from the pouring rain at the march in Eugene!
