In May, we celebrate Mother's Day and Memorial Day in the U.S.A.
We can think of no better time to honor Moms, Soldiers, and First Responders everywhere.
Heroes and She-roes Celebration
Maya Angelou, an unofficial Poet Laureate of America, may have been the first to refer to women as She-roes rather than as heroines.
I like She-roes because it sounds as if it should be the feminine counterpart of heroes. Heroine always makes me think of leading ladies in novels and movies.
Let's own the word She-roes, and let's celebrate them all from stay-at-home Moms to Moms in the workplace and Moms who save lives and win Purple Hearts from combat wounds. (Yes, there are more than 50 who have.)
Let's celebrate the women and men of our police forces and fire departments, ambulance crews, nurses, doctors, and all branches of the military in all countries. Take a moment to thank them for their service. What they all do takes courage and determination and a strong moral compass to do the job and do it well.
