Building a Dream: The 2019 San Francisco Women’s March

“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable….
Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice,
suffering and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate
concern of dedicated individuals.” Martin Luther King Jr.

Some shots of San Francisco’s 2019 Women’s March:  the tone
was hopeful, angry, and determined.

This year we remember that most of the civilized world said yes
to Dr. Kings Dream.

The NATO Alliance promotes global human rights.

Dr. King’s Dream is a global movement.

Democracies will continue to build a more just, integrated and
inclusive global civilization.

We will continue to fight poverty, abuse, and discrimination.

We will not go back.

    1. Thanks Robbie. I didn’t know there was a March in Honor of MLK the next day or I disquieting to live under the ‘leadership’ of such a sick and sadistic man. It always feels good to get out and be among people who are working to bring his presidency to an end.

  1. What a wonderful post, Rob. It makes me feel there is hope that things can change. Loved the kid with the banner saying his generation will tear down the wall if it’s built. And the one of Trump’s thumbs tied to stop him tweeting – if only!

  2. I loved every single image, but the banner that said ‘Build a wall and my generation will tear it down’ almost made me cry. This, this is the hope for the future. This may finally be the democracy we were promised a long time ago. This may be the start of the rebirth of Western culture. From here, the only way is up!

    1. If humanity can establish a new global order without self-destructing as we did in the 20th Century we will have accomplished a milestone in our evolution as a species. The whole idea of anti-globalism is absurd. We are one species on one globe.

      1. This is our dilemma as a species: the instincts that served us so well in the jungles and on the savannas of our infancy are lethal in a densely populated global civilization. We will catch up to ourselves or die.

      2. Mm…we haven’t adapted terribly well in the last 2000+ years. On bad days I doubt we ever will. Then I listen to a glorious piece of music and hope like hell that we do.

      3. Our species is such an anomaly. We can drive by remote control on the surfaces of Mars and the Moon yet we squabble with each other over meaningless questions of race and sexual preference on computers that can teach us anything we need to know at any time. How can humans be so brilliant and so stupid at the same time?

      4. Hah! If we knew the answer to that one, we’d have world peace!
        Seriously though, it’s as if we modeled the concepts of good/evil, angels/devils on ourselves. :/
