March 8, 2017, Prescott-
Some thoughts on the occasion of International Women’s Day:
Women, at least from what I can see, want what men want-
Respect, dignity, appreciation, the right to strive, the right to achieve, the chance to succeed, avoidance of typecasting.
I would not be anywhere near the man I am, were it not for Mother’s diligence in her job.
I would be far lesser a person, had it not been for my wife’s undying love and encouragement.
I would not be as loyal a friend, had my sister not been the true and loyal friend she has been, for 64 years.
My world would be bleaker, without many female friends, ranging in age from ten to eighty.
Much is still made of beauty- but it is the kind of beauty radiating from within, that sustains any person, in perpetuity.
Comely women need to be viewed as humans, with the same needs and wants as anyone else, or the viewer is missing a variety of points.
When a task requiring many hands presents itself, a full crew of both genders is the most productive.
I shudder at a world, in which women are barred from exercising their talents and faculties.
Blessed International Women’s Day!
