Women’s Equality Day – August 26, 2011
Interesting as I looked at the above title I noticed WED, which is also synonymous with “to wed or to marry” which means to unite, bind or blend. Also Wednesday aka (Wed) the middle of the week, which is associated with the color green according to Wikipedia. The color green is also associated with regeneration, fertility & rebirth. The color green just happens to be the color that the First Lady Michelle Obama wore during the inauguration and she is ironically one of the most influential women in the article mentioned below. Also in the middle of all this is equality or equivalency. As I reflect on this day I’m grateful for unity, justice, regeneration & of course the color green! Maybe the stars aligned it this way or maybe they whispered it to the wind. Women were given the right to vote in the U.S. in 1920. However, an amendment was first introduced to the constitution as early as 1878. As I think about women who suffered for the sake of equality, I see a streak of green in the rainbow! Thank you for your spoken & unspoken harmony to my voice. Wow & how ironic is it that I used the color green for my blog. That’s incredibly harmonic!
