“I am women – Hear my ROAR!” I love that my Birthday happens to fall on INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY! This is cause for celebration in my books. This March 8th – 2014, the theme from the United Nations, is “INSPIRING CHANGE – FOR THE GREATER AWARENESS FOR WOMEN!”
The 100th year Women’s Day Anniversary was celebrated in 2011. This special day on our calendar stands for inspiring women worldwide. We as mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts and daughters must stand tall and unite. There is strength in numbers. Speaking of numbers, there are millions and millions of women of every age, ethnicity and colour in the world. On this day we stand united and we are one!
Sadly many of the women, girls, and children are not considered equal and face many sad atrocities today. I wish the world was not like this, it makes my heart bleed. My role as a mother is to build a foundation in my daughter and son which is strong and will not shatter upon adversity. My hope is they will go into the world and be the “best they can be, be strong, be loving and kind”. I am sure this is the hope of all mothers and fathers for their children.
The first ever celebration of women internationally began in 1911 and every year marks many events and celebrations worldwide! So what are you doing today to inspire change. I am eating chocolate cake and squeezing my babies and letting to let them know I LOVE THEM!
