Like so many posts on social media, it’s gained momentum even though it’s false. Context is key in this situation. Actually, context is a key to life.
A gathering of a half-million people is, of course, probably going to leave some trace. The signs depicted in so many of the photos, however, were left in those particular spots for a reason.

Critics of the sign disposal method also fail to realizing that stacking signs in one heap makes clean-up significantly easier, especially considering trash cans were more than likely spilling over.
Finally, it’s entirely worth mentioning that the National Park Service remarked that the Women’s March on Washington were “tidy” with NPS spokesperson Emily Linroth stating that “fortunately, a lot of people, even though, the trash cans were full, have stacked the trash neatly as close to the trash cans as they could get them, so that is making our job easier.”
Once again, women did it the right way.

What do you think your grandmother is doing right now? For those of you lucky enough to answer anything other than "turning in her grave, ashamed of the useless offspring she accidentally created", your grandma is probably doing something wholesome. Maybe baking a nice pumpkin pie (the first of the season), or thinking about what…
