Today for International Women's Day

On this day I wanted to remember all the women of this world who do not enjoy the freedoms I take for granted each day. 
I am so thankful that I do not have to wonder this morning if I will offend someone by my very existence and pay for that with my life.
On this day I pray from my heart that in my lifetime I will see all women of this world given the gift of freedom to chose their own destinies, live in peace, and share their talents without fear.
Today I ask that we women who live in this freedom loving country take a moment to remember their sisters who live in fear we cannot imagine and pray their day in the sun is coming!


  1. Powerful video.
    Hard to imagine in 2011 that this is still happening in the world, isn't it? Somehow you'd think that horrors such as these were not happening anymore.
    Thank you for posting this.

  2. Thank you for clearing something up for me! One of my bloggers sent me a message about Women's Day and I had not heard about it. I'll bet she thinks I am a dork. Not a dork, just not informed. I know that a lot of our sisters live horrible, oppressed lives and it is such a sad thing. We, here, have NO idea, how blessed we are for our freedoms and our lives!


  3. A very nicely written post, Tina, and one that presents an important message. :)

  4. It really is amazing how so many in the media ignore the facts about the horrible oppression of women in certain countries around the world. Every day, I am thankful to live in a Free country, but freedom is fragile so I never take it for granted.

  5. Thank you for posting this message, Tina.

  6. I am worried that things are not going so well for women in Egypt now

  7. Hello Tina!! I'm catching up on my blog reading and wanted to stop by yours. To start, thank-you for the kind thoughts on the loss of our boy Tanner. It helps to hear from those like you who understand...I have to tell you that I heard from Old Sam's family a few days ago...It was a strange conversation.

    But I found this post inspiring--I am also concerned about women being treated as 'second class citizens.' In an area with a diverse population, I've seen it first hand and I hope for the day when they will have their own voice.

    I hope you're having a good week!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and for leaving a comment. It truly brightens my day to read your thoughtful remarks!
