Sadly, I think the greatest thing we have to fear is ourselves.
Obama said famously, "It's the right thing to do." William James said, "Act as if what you do matters. It does." Choose kindness and you will always choose wisely.
So women, when you are given the gift of a right, take it, seize it, use it. Do not waste your right because if you do, who knows when the day will come that you no longer have the luxury of choice.
Democracy is a government for and by the people, and you have a right and a duty to participate. If you don't participate, you don't get to complain when things don't go as you like them.
Rather than buying stuff, why don't you give a little love this holiday season?
I will remain hopeful that as we grow as a population, as women continue to vocalize ills committed against them, as men learn to accept our voice, as the media continues to raise awareness, we will one day grow to truly treat one another with equal respect and dignity regardless of sex or gender. We all all be happy in a human's world.
As a driver, when a cyclist is on the road, instead of getting annoyed that they are in your way, slowing you down or in any other way making you unhappy, just slow down, pass them safely, give them a wave and silently thank them for their small contribution.
