A year ago today this was my post entry. This year as I celebrate this very special day I celebrate this wonderful young woman:
I am so grateful for everything this human being has brought into my life... pure happiness when I see her face or hear her voice. She has turned into a very brilliant young woman and today I celebrate her - my daughter Ginette Anne.
Today is a time to reflect on the advances we've made towards equality and to look ahead to the challenges that remain. Let us also reflect on the many women in abusive relationships - sisters, friends, cousins, nieces, mothers, daughters, neighbours. I can't imagine the state I would be in if my daughter was ever abused and I was to find out (and believe me, I would).
Hope you get to spend today with the ones you love.
