International Women’s Day
It strikes me as odd to have a special day for half the population of the planet. But in fact, there are too many places where the other 364 recognize them not at all. I wonder if the women who need it most are granted even this, one day to be appreciated for who they are. So while we are are enjoying a day of leisure, dinner out, flowers and what-not, please join me in saying a prayer ~in whatever direction you send yours~ for our sisters in this world who, simply for being born female, are held back, beaten down, branded as worthless, and never even know it’s not true.
