love thursday 06.25.09 ~ women


For millenia women have dedicated themselves almost exclusively to the task of nurturing, protecting, and caring for the young and the old, striving for the conditions of peace that favor life as a whole. ... The education and empowerment of women throughout the world cannot fail to result in a more caring, tolerant, just, and peaceful life for all.


~ Aung San Suu Kyi ~


Burma's pro-democracy leader and political prisoner,
who awaits the verdict on her most recent arrest



We who nurture--may we live up to this vision. And may we walk hand-in-hand and arm-in-arm with our brothers who hold the vision.

Love.

My dear friend spoke of this very thing at dinner tonight. She is reading Jean Shinoda Bolen's Urgent Message from Mother: Gather the Women which calls on women everywhere to invoke the power of our nurturing natures to save the world and ourselves.
