On January 5, 2020, kid number one (KNO) and I attended the No Hate No Fear Solidarity rally. We joined about 25,000 other attendees in an effort to push back against the increase in anti-Semitic violence occurring across the country at that time. The rally started at Foley Square in lower Manhattan. From there, rally-goers walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and reconvened in Cadman Plaza Park.

KNO attended because they wanted to make a difference, and thought this was a place to start. I'm proud of them for choosing to do good, even when it's not easy.

For me, I went because I have Jewish relations who voted for the then-current leader of this white supremacist Republican administration. Despite this, I do not condone violence against them or others due to their religious faith.

While serious, the rally was also filled with lots of energy. People sang, played music and, when joined by hecklers, drowned them out quickly, forcefully, and with grace.

I marched so that they may know I'm willing to do my part to help us all be safe, even if they chose otherwise for me or mine.

As James Baldwin said, "The moment we cease to hold each other, the moment we break faith with one another, the sea engulfs us and the light goes out."

On that note, find a way to be a light in the world, my friends. Be well and be safe.
