March for Science Recap

On April 22, 2017, my wife, my 6 year old, and I attended the March for Science in Indianapolis.  My 10 year old would have joined us but she had travel soccer games.  It was a blast!  It was so great to be surrounded by so many forward thinking individuals who understand the importance of promoting science.  We congregated around the Indiana statehouse, heard a few speakers, and then marched a few blocks down to the park.  Great times!  Prior to attending we made signs at home as you can see below.

There were so many witty signs that it was fun simply looking around and reading the signs of others.  Despite the fun we had, I must say that it is absolutely ridiculous our country has come to a point in which a March for Science is needed.  Science isn't a hobby.  Science saves lives.  This isn't a joke, but the current Republican part in the U.S. treats it as a joke.  I don't know what the future holds for science in the U.S., but this family will not go down without a fight.  We must stand up and fight as the very existence of humans on this planet depends on science.  You too can stand up and fight.  For information on how to do so, go to the March for Science website posted below.
