The Price of Breathing In This Life (thanks to Ann Crittenden)
If you are reading this blog and know of The Price Of Motherhood, then I am most certainly preaching to the choir.
However, if you do not not know Ann Crittenden, then as a mother, I believe you should.
I will say no more, other than, women should always stand strong, together, united. There have been too many points in recent (and distant) history that have taken (or prevented us from having) our voice, our freedoms, & our basic rights to do what I write about each week, breathe in this life.
Please join what I believe is one of the Good Fights, to secure equal rights for women and mothers all over this globe, and to protect our future generations.
Here are a few websites I recommend to all women, mothers or not (and a Good News! bulletin for moms)
Baby Friendly Hospitals On the Rise!
To my constant friend and brave companion, Alaha, stay strong, your country Afghanistan needs you now more than ever! And to the new incoming class of Afghan women at IEAW, welcome to America! I look forward to meeting you in a few days!
