Happy International Women’s Day


We are so apt to designating days in which to give recognition or bask in celebration. Personally, I believe that every day should be a day of recognition and celebration.

I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires. Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less.  ~Susan B. Anthony

One critique that stuck for me most and stayed with me for a long time was the fact that some members did not get my story or understood some of the terms I used because it was written in dialect or the term itself was unfamiliar to them.
