What I want to do today:

Laze around the house, reading and watching TV and labeling photos and maybe doing laundry.

What I’m going to do today:

Go to the March for Our Lives in San José.

I’m generally oddly reluctant to attend marches and rallies and such. They involve a lot of people, and implicit conflict, and it’s usually a hassle to get to them. I know intellectually that it’s worthwhile, but I often fall back on excuses and skip them.

But the kids who organized this event are amazing, and I feel like I owe it to them to show up in support.

And seeing various of y’all post about attending the marches in your locations made it feel more like a thing that I could do.

So I’m off to San José.
