On Saturday, April 29th at 4:15 AM I woke up and came to Friends to take a bus to DC. We got to DC a few hours later and soon began the march. I thought it was very inspiring to see some of the other signs that people had made and the various places people had came from. As we were walking we passed the museum of news which had a picture of a journalist who had been detained for speaking out against a government elsewhere, at this point we were surrounded by thousands of people speaking out for the climate, and, to an extent, against the government. This reminded me of the power that a citizen has in America and how it it important to make sure that that power is being used productively.
