Colorado Meet-Up and March For Our Lives

March for Our Lives – Denver, CO

Colorado State Capitol

200 E Colfax Ave, Ste 136

Denver, CO 80203
When: Saturday, March 24, 2:00 PM

On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today. March with us in Washington DC or march in your own community. On March 24, the collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard.

If you guys would like to set up a meet-up or organize to meet for the March, I will happily match you up. Send  me an email at whats4dinnersolutions at live dot com and I will share with anyone else interested in meeting up. I’m hoping someone will step up to take the lead to organize the whole shebang.

I would love to tell you that I will be there, but I somehow let myself get very rundown the last month, I think I’m fine one day and the next day I’m just dragging. So I am going to pretend to be an adult and take care of myself and not over commit for the next few weeks.

For the rest of you, open thread.

    TaMara: I hope you recover enough to attend the March. I think this one is gonna be another life-changing one. Every supporter counts.

    Foo on tiredness.

    I suspect there will be a lot more marches, so rest up. Your health is important. We can’t live without Scout and Bixby and duck pictures once in a while.

    @Mary G: especially the duck pics.

    I’d be up for coordinating a NYC BJ Jackals contingent for the 24th.

    Maybe it’s time to check in with your doctor? A month is a long time to feel badly, even if it is intermittent.

    I can’t make this one either. Perhaps we can do the March for Science?

    This was me for most of January and part of February. The fatigue was just brutal–like lifting a full glass of water to take a sip was almost not possible. I’d be okay-ish one day and do my usual stuff and the next day be almost not functional. I have no idea what it was. Originally I thought I was getting the flu so took a day to rest but I never got the flu (I did get a flu shot), so I don’t think that was it.

    I hope you feel better soon. I finally just did what you are saying. Rest a lot, don’t commit to too many things and little by little it lifted. Take care of yourself.

    I need to check my schedule. For some reason I thought I had something going on that weekend. I could possibly help in organizing as well. (well, you know, I’m in marketing, this kind of stuff is what I do :P

    Y’all are so much nicer than I am. However, I think being among so many marchers is good for the soul, and might be reviving. Plus, it’s 11 days away. I do understand fatigue. But I wonder if a march might be an antidote for it.

    A few hours ago Trump’s helicopter, accompanied by two Ospreys, flew almost directly over our house; he was on his way to check out the border wall prototypes (or “swatches,” as a friend calls them). I ran around frantically, searching for my slingshot, until I remembered that I haven’t had one since I was about 12.

    Certainly not I.

    Are we going to have a thread for the PA race? Polls closed just now.

    edit: ask and you shall receive.

    I live on Capitol Hill and my neighbors and I are coordinating getting friends together for the March. We’re about a mile from the Capitol and will have some bagels and coffee and mimosas in advance. Haven’t figured out times yet. If anyone wants to join us you are welcome. Contact me at duncandmccoll at gmail dot com. I’ll send details. I’m about a mile due east of union station – probably best for people coming from north and east. Maybe we can meet up somewhere central.

    @Hungry Joe:

    In Dick, starring Michelle Williams and Kirsten Dunst, the two pissed-off teenage girls stand on the roof of their mom’s Georgetown house with a banner as Richard Nixon flies away.

    It’s pretty glorious.

    @Yarrow: whatever it is, I had it too. Still lingers.

    @satby: I’m sorry you’re still dealing with it. Rest, plenty of fluids, and not doing too much were what finally helped me recover. I just had to say no to a bunch of activities. I hope you feel better soon.

    @satby:

    This. I’m fine one day and the next walking across the room is like moving with thousand pound weights on my legs. A couple other friends have it, too. And my friend’s son was tested for mono (negative) because of it.

    Jan and Feb are killer work months for me anyway, and March is my first time to take a breathe.
