"We can't just sit there, and not say it" - Lansing Capitol Home to Peaceful Protest on Inauguration Day

LANSING - A protest, for peace. On January 20, after 45th United States President Donald J. Trump took the oval office, people like Cynthia Lempert came to the Capitol, with a mission.

Lempert says that mission, is to tell people who say to give up--she's not.

"We can't just sit there and not say it, so that's what I say to them," said Lempert.

And, what Cynthia is saying...

"I wanted to do something on the actual Inauguration Day to show that I disapprove of this man."

Cynthia, joined at the Capitol by local politicians and others concerned about a Trump presidency--are ultimately there to spread one message, says event coordinator Carol Skillings.

"The fight's not over," said Skillings.

The Lansing protest had a different narrative than disturbances in Washington D.C. on January 20, where more than 200 people were arrested. Skillings says her goal with this gathering...

"I know that I needed words of hope and inspiration and courage, and a lot of other people needed that today too."

Words, and song--with a message heard throughout the Capitol.
