Really great one this morning Abby, especially liked the “Girl in the Mirror”, thank you!
One of my favorites from one of my favorites, Ms Steinem
“I never wanted to be a politician or elected person myself,
so I loved to work for other women who did—and hope that more girls will do that.
The problem is the feeling that we’re divided from politics,
that our vote doesn’t count or what we do doesn’t count.
In fact, everything we do counts.”
AND ONCE AGAIN, MY FAVORITE OLD SONG:
I am woman hear me roar in numbers too big to ignore
and I know too much to got back and pretend.
Cause I’ve heard it all before, when I’ve been down there on the floor
and no one’s ever gonna keep me done again!
Yes I am wise and it’s wisdom born of pain.
Yes I’ve paid the price, but look how much I’ve gain.
If I have to, I can do anything! I am strong invincible I am WOMAN! : )
Yes, I have had to sing that oId song a Iot-----but it’s a wonderful way to seIf empower! Although, it would work just as well for men—and even better for just saying HUMAN! : )
