On this, the first real day of the Age of Trump, the Alaska Airlines flight from Seattle to DC is 100% full.
It's full of women and girls from 8 months to 18 years (and even a handful of men--check out the bearded guy!) marching on Washington to protest Trump's inauguration and the innumerable threats to women, minorities, the planet, and all humanity that his administration presents and has promised to visit on us all.
I don't know a single one of the people in these pictures, but they were all more than happy to be photographed and go on record, as am I, to be part of this moment.
In the words of the Dude, THIS AGGRESSION WILL NOT STAND!
When the flight attendant said we were Washington-bound, the whole plane erupted in applause and she took a picture of everyone on board. You could tell she was excited too. (Since the inauguration was today, it was a pretty safe bet, and you could tell from looking, that there were few if any #MAGA folks traveling this route).
Nope. This plane is 100% "Hillary Bitches," to quote that guy who yelled at and harassed women on a flight shortly after the election.
These were people who were elated to be taking the time and effort to show up in person and be counted. The future can knit, and they give me hope.
