Science March
Once a scientist, always a scientist. Even though I'm retired I was marching in spirit with all the scientists and other people who protested against "alternative facts". Here are some of the best images I saw posted on social media. The first one could have been me (a long time ago).

Those are some great signs. My husband and son went to marches (in two different cities), but my daughters and I were at a tournament that had been scheduled many months before the march for science and were unable to attend. I wore my pi earrings (3.1415 hanging down) and the competition was related to science/tech, fine arts and service learning so it wasn't completely unrelated. Sorry we missed it though.

It sounds like the tournament was designed for this Science March. I hope you enjoyed it.
You have pi earrings? How wonderful!

The pi earrings were actually purchased (by my sister) for my daughter who memorized 100+ digits of pi when she was in, I believe, 5th grade. Since it has the first several digits they seemed appropriate. However, my daughter (well actually both my daughters) have refused to wear them, so I've worn them the past couple of Pi Days (March 14) and this was the next event where they seemed appropriate. Mind you, one person asked me what they were because it was obviously something, but unclear what and no one else commented, so I don't know that it was much of a statement. I have long hair that mostly covered them much of the time, which might have been part of the problem.

"memorized 100+ digits of pi when she was in, I believe, 5th grade"
Wow, what a memory! You must be so proud of her.
Earrings are tricky. They are either invisible or too prominent. Anyway, it's the gesture that counts, especially with pi earrings. :-)

these are great images. i can't believe we have to go through this kind of thing in this day and age.

True, it's very surreal. I wouldn't have believed all this was possible just a year ago.

These are fantastic! Still such a shame that a march is for this is even a thing. *sighs*

I can't pick a favorite, they're all so awesome!

I love it when people use their creativity for protesting.

Exhilarating but extremely sad that folks have to struggle to have basic scientific facts heard, believed and taken seriously. I'm sorry but damnTrump, just damn him!

"I'm sorry but damnTrump, just damn him!"

Wonderful Images, great post! Thanks for sharing, my dear.
