Women's March January 21st

Dear Editor:

With the popular vote, the Democratic party was left stunned to learn Hillary Clinton would not be President and the moral fiber of the nation is left in limo. A movement underway is the Million Women (Men and Children) March on January 21st in Washington DC. The many days after the elections, we took to the streets in a peaceful way, to unite as a populous and introduce ourselves to newly elected President Trump. We can lose our foothold on (individual and family) health, education, out-of-poverty, community safety, local economy needs and environment issues.

Feeling isolated living on an island, my lower 48 friends and family told me of the March in Washington. I went to one of many websites and copy/paste their message listed below. If you can not make it, I will meet you downtown at Pier 1 & 2 on January 21st. Ketchikan can keep mainstream with our presence – rain or shine!

Respectfully submitted,

Mary L. Stephenson
