Since I read the article about the Women’s March being cancelled, I have been feeling a little despondent. While I understand some of the reasoning behind the decision, I felt it was wrong. It’s kinda like that old saying about throwing out the baby with the bath water.

I went to the Facebook page to learn more and found that a permit was submitted for the march after all. I am so grateful to Linda Atkins for taking this on. I do believe the momentum needs to be continued. I am white. I can’t help that. But I also am poor, without children, and considered elderly.

I look forward to the original organizers’ expanded and improved march for next year!

Thank you again, Ms. Atkins. See you on Jan. 19!

Kathryn Travers, Eureka
