Celebrate the Day- I Can Vote Thanks to Our Mothers and Grandmothers.. AND Let's Not Forget Our Favorite 4 Legged Friends!
It's another day to celebrate and today is Women's Equality Day. Did you know that women did NOT have the right to vote until 1920 when the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was passed giving us the right to vote?
That is less than 100 years ago... not all that long. Today we take it for granted that a woman can pilot a plane; be a medical practioner beyond being a nurse; run a Fortune 500 company; or take a trip into space.
It was the late Congresswoman Bella Abzug who lobbied for this day to be designated as Women's Equality Day. We can thank those women who peacefully marched in the streets and dared to apply to Medical Schools AND entered into the world of selling Real Estate for all of the opportunities we have today!
And where would we be without our 4 legged friends... our dogs. Today is also National Dog Day. (this one's for
you Toni Weidman!) Today we want to call attention to our friends who love us no matter what. They are at the front lines of battle; they give us endless love and joy; they help us when we are challenged physically and play with us when there is no one else.
If you know of someone looking for a pet, please send them to your local shelter. If you see one being mistreated, do something! And, if you're lucky enough to have one of your own... give him or her a great big hug and their favorite treat... after all.. it's their day!!
