March for Science: Seattle

On this cold and rainy day, I was among the thousands of Seattleites who participated in the March for Science. I appreciated being able to support science and scientists and to share my own concern for what is happening in our country. I also loved the feeling of community that goes along with this type of experience.

One of my favorite parts of the march was seeing all of the signs. Since we were in Cal Anderson Park for almost two hours before we started walking, I had plenty of time to take pictures of them! (Click on the galleries to enlarge the photos.)

I enjoyed watching this child try to pick up a sign. The wind and the fact that the sign was bigger than she was made it an impossible task, but that didn’t stop her from trying. She was such a role model for being persistent, patient, and committed to her goal. She never expressed any frustration, she just kept going for what she wanted.

Some of the other sights:

I am so glad that I participated and hope that my photos might have given you a sense of being there yourself.

  1. Thank you for taking us along. I believe that general public is very much aware about the environmental situation our world is facing today but governments all over the world aren’t doing their part.

    1. It seems like we still have a large segment of the U.S. that denies that climate change even exists. It isn’t the majority of the population but as you said they hold the power in government right now.

  2. Quite impressive…I love particularly, “There is no Planet B”. Indeed! I find the young people I work with are not as involved…if you look at the recycling bins we have…so little care in placing things in the right bins. It bothers me that it is not a natural behaviour.
