Seattle Day One

We are here. We are here.

-Horton Hears A Who, Dr. Seuss


First class makes things better. Long plane journeys still suck. Thank you restless leg syndrome.

After a long sleep and a nap we were ready for the first (and only) order of business for the day- Downtown Seattle for a #blacklivesmatter vigil.

It started quietly,equal numbers of all colors gathering.


And even once it took to the streets, remained so-


Most impressive were the police on bikes who made sure the unplanned street protesters were protected from cross traffic. The march ended up at the U.S. Courthouse.


And this being Seattle, the kids played in the park undaunted by both the protests and the rain.


I am proud to be part of a family who pays attention to the world.
