We are all riding high from the marches this weekend. I could never have predicted how much it would heal me, and how much it would instill Obama-style hope for the future. When we are knocked down – and we will be – we can point to this moment and say, “this is why.” And we will keep trying, knowing our sisters stand behind us.
I know it’s hard to remember, but we were really terrified of John McCain and Sarah Palin. We mobilized, we spoke, we won.
