#Microblog Mondays 94: Pride
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
This was supposed to be a happy post. I was going to tell you about how we marched in the Capital Pride parade this weekend. It was my first time marching in a parade vs. watching from the sidelines, and it was fun and overwhelming and emotional. We waved and danced and blew kisses to hundreds of thousands of people. The ChickieNob and I tucked rainbow flags into our hair, and the Wolvog zig zagged across the route, passing out candy to the crowd. It was an enormous party. I have never been cheered on by a crowd, and we left that night with our bodies buzzing from all the excitement.
And then we woke up, and Orlando had happened.
The amazing high to the lowest low; both defy words. Our hearts are with the families of the victims at Pulse, and with the entire community.
