Thanks to All The Amazing Women Out There

Thank you to all you amazing, courageous, beautiful, strong, and motivational women out there for being YOU. Not only do you encourage me daily, you inspire people all around.  Keep it up!

And a personal shout out to all the amazing women in my life. Thank you for inspiring me to be a better person, to honor and stay true to myself, and for helping me to be the strong, independent woman I am. I am so grateful and fortunate to have you in my life. Thank you.

Be sure to support and give a shout out to all the important women in your life, today.

Happy International Women’s Day. Yesterday was a tremendous victory for women everywhere when President Obama passed the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). This historic change will help us take on the challenges of tomorrow and will provide protections for LGBT victims of violence, better prevention and education programs for sexual assault on university campuses, and expanded services for victims of sexual assault. We’re making wonderful advancements and I’m proud of our progress!

Same Love

I came across this in February on Facebook and was instantly moved; it’s just so beautiful. I’m still thinking about it. Everything about it – the lyrics, the music, the video, it all touched me down to my very core and I must have watched it 3 or 4 times. I don’t usually repost videos but this has such a strong and important message that I want to share it with all of you.

“America the brave still fears what we don’t know…
It’s human rights for everybody, there is no difference!
Live on and be yourself
A world so hateful some would rather die than be who they are
And a certificate on paper isn’t gonna solve it all
But it’s a damn good place to start”

I hope, someday in the near future, everyone will be able to love freely with abandon, without hesitation and that we’ll look back and be disgusted that there were ever people who limited love.

Love sees no race nor gender. Equality and love for all.  

I suggest you also take a moment to read the lyrics and watch the video. It’s worth the 7 minutes.
