Karyn Hamilton of Montclair knew immediately she would attend the Women’s March on Washington. She feels the need to connect, to be with those that feel the same way. As a kid she followed her older sister’s lead and wore a black arm band to school to protest the Vietnam War and refused to pledge allegiance. At the time she did not fully understand why. Today she knows why. She marches for her sons’ future wives and children and for all of her friends’ daughters. “We have to stand up and make sure that everybody knows we’re here.”
