Eyesight is great for driving. Not so good for judging others. Often, the person most qualified, willing to give the most, love the deepest and try the hardest is overlooked while standing right in front. Judged as not perfect enough because of skin color, disability, weight, sexual orientation, and/or a number of other ways they didn’t “look normal.” Appearance often determines who is counted as important and who isn’t. It often determines who is held back from healthcare, jobs, an education, and numerous other opportunities. Change the way we see. It’s where independence begins. Happy Independence Day….for all. christinamholtz
Christina, a friend of mine, wrote and shared the above wise words on social media and with her permission I’m sharing it with you because it’s such an important message for everyone. I also felt with tomorrow being Independence Day and the day when the featured Woman On The Move article will be published these words couldn’t be more timely.
“And I knew I wanted to be an author. From the time I figured out words could be written down in books and enjoyed, again and again, I knew someday I would write.” ~Jo Pinto, Author, Bright Side of Darkness
Stay tuned for Jo’s article which will be posted tomorrow noon ET.
