I heard the call and I answered without hesitation. That’s just how it hit my spirit.  Days before America had witnessed one of the biggest upset elections in our history when the influential Hillary Clinton had lost the presidency to a man with a checkered personal and business background who had never held public office.  It was the electoral college votes in three key states that carried him to the finish line, despite the more than three million popular votes cast for Clinton. 

By November 9th, that turn of events left the nation shocked, elated, saddened and resentful and the election results came rolling in.  Donald Trump would be the 45th president of the United States of America.  

While some sat and cried, Teresa Shook, a 60-year-old retired grandmother from Hawaii took action. She set up an event page on Facebook and asked friends and colleagues to sign up for a proposed March on Washington on January 21st. The list grew from 40 to 10,000 within days, and a new movement was born.

We’ll tell the rest of this amazing story and how this march affirmed my principles as I marched with thousands last Saturday in Washington DC. 

One woman made history and has ignited the fighting spirit of an American society. On today’s show, we’ll tell you how you can get on board by making your voices heard.
