YES for Women!

Dear Friends,
I want to take a moment to Honor ALL Women and ALL Enlightened Men.   As we saw this past weekend, women and men are rising up  together to say:
YES to Women Rights
YES to Equality
YES to Equal Pay for Equal Work
YES to  Respect, Dignity and Integrity
YES to Human Rights on all levels for all people.
YES to Women having the Right to make decisions about herself, her body and her life.
YES to Women for all that they are and all that they do!
YES for Women’s Incredible Intelligence, Wisdom, Compassion and Love
YES for Women of all races, cultures, faiths, and gender choices
YES for Women finally having leadership roles they are innately qualified to do and be.
YES for Women standing in their Power!
We saw a lot of women fed up with abuse,  put downs and seen as inferior this past weekend as they marched all over the world.  It was not only a political statement, it was a Human  Consciousness Statement.   No more feeling inferior, not enough, vulnerable.  We all are created in the image and likeness of God. When you put a woman down, you put God down.
Women’s time has come and we are loved and embraced by our enlightened men who also want to see equality and respect for women happen all over the world.
My heart, mind and spirit is with the women of the world!
Everyone do what you can to promote human kindness, human dignity, human encouragement and put a STOP to any abuse of any kind, whether it be a joke, a passing remark or an  incident on the street or in a store.  Steve and I took a Bystanders training class to learn how to de-escalate any volatile situation.  I would encourage you to call the nearest CAIR organization and find out when and where the next training will be. It is very easy and a one class commitment.
Let us bring up our beautiful daughters and granddaughters with the idea they are brilliant, talented, capable and have the right to choose who they wish to be.  Let us bring up our sons and grandsons with the idea they are brilliant, talented, capable and have the right to choose who they wish to be AND to know both men and women are equally deserving  in all aspects of life.  No one is better than…. Each one has his and her own unique talents, skills and abilities and need to express them the best they know how.  TEACH RESPECT, TEACH EQUALITY!
Today and EVERY day let us STAND TOGETHER.  As Ghandi said, “Let us BE the change we wish to see in the world!”
