Women's March On Pittsburgh
January 21st, 2018, marked the day in which thousands of men and women of all ethnicities, colors, backgrounds, and beliefs gathered at in front of the City-County in building in Pittsburgh to march for equality.
"We're here to march for equality," said Monica Henderson. "I think that whether your a man or women, gay or straight, black or white, you deserve the same rights."
The idea was to come out and raise awareness of the idea that everyone deserves to be treated equally in today's world, however, there was more to this march.
"Most of us marching today believe that a lot of the hatred in our country comes from many different places, but the fact that our president seems to be the stem to a lot of the hatred we see is despicable," said Linda McQueen.
That's right, a majority of today's march was focused on Trump- the man who is suppose to be the leader of our country. However, to all the individuals marching today, Trump has made a travesty of his presidency with his disgraceful comments and actions.
"This is the guy we are supposed to look up to, but the things that he says and does on a daily basis creates so much tension amongst all races, genders, religions, and ethnicities that it feels impossible to believe that we even have a president in office," said Maddie Hardcastle.
It is hard to debate Hardcastle's beliefs on Trump and the mockery he has made of what it means to be a US President, but today is a day that Pittsburgh has united. Whether you have different ideas or beliefs than the person sitting next to you or not, it's much easier to work together than to put up a fight. Where we all learned in high school math that two negatives make a positive, we might find that two, unlike minds, can create a greater impact.
