A Mother's Love and Optimism

I will be starting this blog in 2012, the year my daughter will turn three years old and the year I hope to start making a difference, not only her future, but the future of all little girls like her.  I know the world is not as sexist as it used to be (congratulations world...most of you have come to realize that women are not irrational, ditzy, overly-sensitive creatures that should stay at home and avoid the troublesome world - note I say MOST of you), but there are still many areas where improvements can be made and many areas of the world where bigger improvements can be made.  So, that is what this blog will be about.  Making it a world for MY girl as well as all the other girls in the world.  Making it a world that is better for all the little boys BECAUSE it is better for little girls.  And making it a place where girls are accepted for who they are, no matter who that is.

I am optimistic because the alternative is depressing.  So, although not all the news on this blog will be good news, I will be focused on making it a place where hope and dreams are embraced with fervor.

I look forward to sharing with you in the future and I hope that I can look back at the close of 2012 and see what I have done as something useful and positive and good.

Bring it on 2012!  Year of the Girl's World!
