As we gather to celebrate Women's History Month, we want to invite all our readers to take time to acknowledge the wonderful women who, in one way or another, had made great contributions to our world and community. The truth is that all those women had something in common.. they were courageous, determined, and fearless, and they all stood up and joined forces to make this world a better place, not only for them but for the generations to come. If that's not impressive, I am not sure what is.
In case you guys didn't know, the 2020 Women’s History Month theme is “Valiant Women of the Vote.” What a great theme, right? And, the great part about that theme is that it came right at a time when our country has been the most divided and we depend on courageous individuals to bring the peace back into our world and into our lives. And, I have no doubt that our newer generation of women will take example from those women from our history and will stand up and fight for what they know is right.
Later this month, the National Women’s History Alliance will honor the women who have fought for woman’s right to vote in the United States.
In recognition of the centennial of the 19th Amendment, they will honor women from the original suffrage movement as well as 20th and 21st century... women who have continued the struggle (fighting against poll taxes, literacy tests, voter roll purges, and other more contemporary forms of voter suppression) to ensure voting rights for all. Again, what a great thing this is.
To our courageous women, which include those currently in uniform, to the veterans, and those who gave their lives for our country, today we say THANK YOU for your service and God Bless You All.
