Kids' messages to Trump at rally in Palo Alto yesterday included "No to any grabbing", "Love and kindness" and "You are not my president".

About 125 people marched through downtown Palo Alto shouting "Love trumps hate" then reconvened in front of City Hall to hear the Raging Grannies sing lyrics to the tune of Saints Come Marching In. When glass ceil-INGS, come tumbling down ...When women's rights are not ignored ... When everyone has good health care.

Participants' candles lit up an otherwise pitch black evening. A few days have passed since the election results, yet people are still in shock. Rise up!
