Anne Caroline at Seattle’s 2013 OBR Celebration

Although I’ve been looking forward to the celebration of One Billion Rising for JUSTICE since May, my health isn’t going to permit me to join in Seattle’s celebrations this year. So, I’m sharing the photos that I took at Seattle’s first One Billion Rising in 2013.

OBR Seattle
We had a wonderful crowd at Westlake Center. I’m very disappointed so many photos of the fun we all had didn’t turn out well.

OBR Umbrella
I loved this eccentric woman with her umbrella. She had a blast and cheerfully posed for photos all night.

OBR MotherSon
Mothers brought their sons.

OBR Dance
We danced.

OBR Ladies
We laughed.

OBR Dude2
We were so excited that young men joined the celebration.

OBR Dude
Hope these two handsome guys are getting sweet love this year.

OBR BellyDancer
We were blessed to shake it up with the belly dancers.

Seattle’s own Raging Grannies, who sing for social change, were my favorite entertainers.

OBR Couple
Couples came together and had a blast.

OBR Trio
If I recall correctly, these folks came in on the ferry from the Kitsap Peninsula.

OBR Women
As the evening drew to a close, I met these beautiful women.

I am so profoundly grateful that all these folks allowed me to take their photos and capture the joy we all experienced.  One Billion Rising was celebrated in every country on the planet by over one billion people.
