COMMENTARY: Why 5,000 marched on Maui, million worldwide

IN 250 WORDS OR LESS: Saturday’s unprecedented women’s (and men’s) march of 5,000 in Kahului was inspirational. The march was not an end but a beginning.

Trumpites do not understand why we marched.This was not for the most part anti-Trump . It was a call to our politicians to act with respect and dignity; it was a call to recognize global warming rather than deny it. It was a call to preserve gains in health care; it was a call to end counterproductive bashing of media,the backbone of democracy.

It was a call to exercise some intelligence and common sense in solving our country’s deep problems and produce positive,rather than negative change. Many voters fell into the trap of believing outrageous claims about Hillary who has been bashed
unfairly for 40 years. No wonder people wanted her locked up.

Brainwashed lies repeated again and again tend to be believed. Hillary made mistakes, ran a poor campaign, but did not deserve what she got. The example of a Hana woman whose idea went viral produced a million marchers worldwide. One person can make a difference.

The 5,000 who marched need to continue to step up, to speak out. Societies have suffered because people remained silent in the face of tyranny and not without penalty.Let’s move
forward America, return to the values that indeed have made this country great, as it still is. At the same time, let’s figure out ways to work for positive not negative change. 

WHY DID SO MANY MEN ON MAUI WALK A MILE AND GET BLISTERS JUST FOR WEARING SHOES SATURDAY?

Because they are not used to walking around in high heels.
 To support women who are victims of domestic violence and take a pledge to do all they can to prevent it, 200 men wearing 400 high heel shoes paraded a mile around Lahaina’s outlet mall in  for Women Helping Women, the non-profit that helps abused women. Here is what we looked like.

In light of recent publicity about NFL football players, supporting groups like this that help women who have been subjected to domestic violence is more important than every.
