It was 11:45am when I saw a friend post about the protest in downtown San Francisco scheduled at 12pm.

I wasn’t even fully dressed yet, I had to send handouts to the copy office for my class I was teaching later that day, and I had also planned to watch the Women’s World Cup game between England and the US before doing some grading.
