A woman says it all. If we break down the powerful word, woman, Wo, is a variant spelling of the word whoa and man is a male figure that demonstrates the acts of courage and strength. A woman is an amazing powerful being that can not only raise children, work, inspire, but has one of the most powerful voices that can be heard from one continent to another and back.
International Women’s Day is a day where we learn from our past sisters and continue to stick together to make the world a better place. It is a time where all women should be thankful for being who they are. It is a day when a woman can re-connect to themselves and say she is amazing because each and every one of us has already contributed so much to earth and to our society.
Although some woman may have never heard the words “Thank You” for cleaning the house, the domestic chores, sacrificing your career, raising the children- today is a day where we all say thank you to each other. If it was not for woman, the world may be at war, and in chaos. The power of a woman is incredible, when you are connected to yourself, and love yourself, the light shine through the tunnel.
Today is a day where every woman can say she is proud to be whom she is, and when she finished this paragraph shall we walk with pride and confidence. Women have given earth love, and care, and these amazing female characteristics should be cherished and encouraged.
It is a day when every woman can truly believe that they are amazing, and today and thereafter should know that a woman’s inner strength and power is incredible. She is the backbone of earth. Every woman, regardless of race, culture, education, religion, social class, and ethnicity should know that today is the mark of where all sisters become sisters, and we all become one. Together we are stronger to empower our world to be a better world to protect our families, children, and ourselves. When a mother needs help, a sister should be there for her. When a father is missing and a mom has to raise her child alone, together we support each other.
The most important lesson that should be learnt from history is to not give up, to continue to strive that you can be the change, if you believe, and strive for the change, the change will happen. With love, miracles can and will spread. Never give up.
