I was in the ballroom at the Marriot Marquis in Washington, D.C. with people from all around the country and all around the world the night before history was made.
I walked through the streets of Washington, D.C. the morning of inauguration and saw those that disagreed with election results peacefully protesting.
The next day I walked from my northwest D.C. apartment down to the National Mall to witness over 600,000 women and men practice peaceful protest and voice their beliefs and concerns.
I urge you: take part in democracy. Speak your mind. Get involved. Educate yourself on current events. Run for local office. Have educated conversations with those that both agree and disagree with you so that you may both understand one another better. This right is the cornerstone on which America was built.
