Women's March- Denver January 21, 2017

Be not deceived. Revolutions do not go backward.
-Abraham Lincoln

View of people streaming into Civic Center Park before the march. Photo taken from 22nd floor of the old Hilton Hotel building.

View of people on 16th St. heading toward Broadway St., then on into Civic Center Park- from the 14th floor of the old Hilton Hotel building.

Start of the march at 15th St. and Cleveland Place.

Signs, signs, everywhere signs.

More signs and people- including men, women and children.

Nasty woman marching.

Pink hats and Dr. King.

More hats and signs.

At 14th St and Temont Place with view of other marchers heading up 15th Street. You can also see Trinity Church way down on Broadway and 18th Street.

The crowd behind me toward the end of the march.

My sister Maura and me at W. Colfax and 14th St. just getting ready to turn onto Banock St. Two block away from the end of the march

Denver Post's photo of Civic Center. The post figured 100,000 people came to march. Only 40,000 people were expected.

My sister Maura and I were not the only Shannon sisters to march. Our sister Tara marched in Los Angeles and took along a photo of our mother taken back when she was protesting for Civil Rights in the 1960s.

It was exhausting. It was invigorating. It was a start. We are the future and the future is now.
