OOPS! From 2017

The Women's Marches may have been the largest demonstration in US history
By Sarah Frostenson Updated Jan 31, 2017, 11:11am EST

Crowd estimates from Women’s Marches on Saturday now tally over 4 million and political scientists think we may have just witnessed the largest day of demonstrations in American history.

According to data collected by Erica Chenoweth at the University of Denver and Jeremy Pressman at the University of Connecticut, marches held in more than 600 US cities were attended by at least 4.2 million people.

“Even using a conservative estimate, it was the single largest day for a demonstration in the US,” Chenoweth, an expert on political protests and civil resistance, told us.

Every state in America hosted a Women’s March, as you can see in the map above. The events ranged from tiny gatherings in small town squares to throngs of more than 500,000 people clogging streets in cities like Washington, DC, and Los Angeles.

They also offer a link to a spreadsheet which is still collecting data: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xa0iLqYKz8x9Yc_rfhtmSOJQ2EGgeUVjvV4A8LsIaxY/edit#gid=0

Question about applying for passports for my husband and myself

One of the sections ask for travel plans - specific dates and countries to be visited.

We're planning to take a short cruise, maybe this year, and then probably in 2019 visit the British Isles. But we have no idea when either trip will be.

The short cruise will be to the Bahamas and I don't even know if we need passports to get off the ship for the one day it will be there. Just in case, we won't book the cruise until we have our passports in hand and it's not worth it to us to ask for expedited handling.

It's way to early to even guess at the dates for the 2019 trip - the cruise line I would like to take doesn't even have all their dates posted yet.

So do you have to fill in that section even if you just want a passport for future trips?
