Person of the Month
NAAWA would like to write about and dedicate this column to Ordinary and Extraordinary women from our community. Every woman has a story. Immigrant women and/or their children have many.
They are all of Us!
We meet them everywhere: they are the cashiers at our grocery stores; the tellers at our bank; the hairdressers at our favorite salon; the clerks at the department stores and in so many other places.
They are activists; lawyers; IT specialists; doctors; nurses and cover the gamut of all professions.
They are wives; mothers; sisters; daughters; single; married; divorced; widowed; gay and straight.
We want to share their profiles and their stories as an inspiration and incentive to all of us.
Please send us the name and email, or phone number of A Women you appreciate so that we may highlight her in this column.
Until next time, we leave you with these words:
Emily Dickinson said:
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain, or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox composed:
So many gods, so many creeds,
So many paths that wind and wind,
While just the art of being kind
Is all the sad world needs.
Anna Cummins wrote:
Do not save your loving speeches
For your friends till they are dead;
Do not write them on their tombstones,
Speak them rather now instead.
