Always a Girl’s Girl

To all of the women in my life,

you have given me strength.

From each of you I have learned what it is like to be strong

and kind

and gentle.

I have learned empathy

for any woman

who feels that she is not enough

and shame

for any woman

who feels that she is better.

We have all felt both.

And to all of the men

who raised their daughters kindly,

who taught them they could take on the world,

thank you.
