My sister suggested that we go to the Women’s March within about 20 minutes of collecting me from the airport. My sister? She’s a former teacher and librarian and she is NOT HAPPY with the state of things right now.
Today I told her we needed to make signs for the demonstration. She pointed to a cabinet and said “there are two pieces of poster board behind that cabinet.” Then she reached into a drawer beside her chair and said, “Here’s some Sharpies.”
I was astonished at the speed and ease with which she provided those supplies. I asked her why she had poster board and markers so readily available. She simply said, ” because you never know when you’ll need to demonstrate!”
