January 21, 2017 The Women's March on Washington
Bradley Shupp, Emilee McGovern, Vanessa McGovern, & Chelsey Pittman
Out of everything I witnessed that day, that I have locked away, I will never forget seeing a homeless gentleman, in his wheelchair, on a street corner gleefully cheering us on: "YOU ARE DOING IT! YOU HAVE DONE IT! YOU THINK THEY DON'T SEE THIS?!?! OH THEY SEE THIS AND THEY SHOULD BE AFRAID. POWER TO THE PEOPLE!! POWER TO THE WOMEN!."
I was so blown away by him, understanding that he is probably on that street corner everyday as people just pass him by, probably witnessed the crowed of the inauguration as well. But on this day he was moved by this crowed, and the crowd was noticing him. He was so involved, he was marching louder and prouder than anyone that day.
I was so taken back by him, I just stoped to watch him, didn't even take a picture, but his words and voice are forever etched in my mind and on my heart.
