About marching
Marching refers to the organized, uniformed, steady walking forward in either rhythmic or route-step time; and, typically, it refers to overland movements on foot of military troops and units under field orders. It is a major part of military basic training in most countries and usually involves a system of drill commands. A soldier learning to march to drum cadences, martial music and shouted commands is considered an essential element of teaching military discipline.
Marching is often performed to march music and is typically associated with military and civilian ceremonial parades.
For rhythmic marching, individuals must maintain their dress, cover, interval, and distance (DCID):

dress — alignment with the person to the side;
cover — alignment with the person in front;
interval — space between the person(s) to the side;
distance — space between the person in front.In Northern Ireland, for some people, marching is a major provocative ritual. Hundreds of marches occur annually. These are usually organized by groups such as the Orange Order, which provide most of the participants. Music is provided by marching bands including silver bands, flute bands and others. Marching is often seen as a symbol of control over a particular area, and marching is often seen as a sectarian activity.The Royal Marines refer to a long distance march carrying full kit as a yomp. The most famous yomp of recent times was during the 1982 Falklands War.

In a statement to CNN, Winfrey said that if not for the coronavirus pandemic, she would be out marching in Taylor’s honor.

“If not for COVID, I would be marching in the streets in this moment,” she said, adding, “This is my form of protest and a way to honor a life that deserved a chance to flourish.”

Winfrey said she will continue her fight until those responsible for Taylor’s death are prosecuted.

“It is my hope that if we continue to say her name, write her name, and let no one forget her life, the people who are responsible for killing her and those who remain complicit by doing nothing shall be brought to justice,” she said.

On Thursday Winfrey premiered “The Oprah Conversation,” exclusively on Apple TV+. The show will focus on “bringing truth and perspective to a range of topics shaping our world, each episode will reveal gripping stories of human connection,” according to a release.
