What passion and anger radiate from your truthful words, Farida! Thank you for a powerful and meaningful response. Women are the glue that hold society together and this has always been true but now more than ever. Men are living compassionless lives requiring women to carry more upon their shoulders. We are EXHAUSTED. And those of us who have been carrying these burdens longer are even more weary from the years added to our beings. The youth are our only hope. They must stay united, focused, engaged, and brave. And, we, the older ones, must be supportive and encouraging in every way.

Society must change. We cannot survive with an attitude of exclusion and separation. Our country is dying.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
