The marchers were defiant but peaceful and cheerful. People carried signs attacking Donald Trump, but I don’t think I saw many signs attacking those who voted for him.
That was a relief. I’ve been thinking about the millions of reasonable Americans who might not yet be on my political side but could change their minds. They might turn hard against my side if my fellow protestors had shown contempt toward their fellow citizens.
But the protestors focused their fight where it belonged: against Trump and in favor of women and other people whom Trump has offended.
All in all, a good day.
