I had no idea that I’m currently considered to be in a WAR ON WOMEN.
We found out that I’m at WAR by taking a short trip from home and turning on the flat screen television in our hotel room. (By not having television in our home, we are happily unaware of the latest political WARs of words and concepts.)
Personally, I’m having a problem at being included in someone else’ declared WAR. Does this mean that I have to take a side, declare my alliance and then do my best to FIGHT the other side? Do I have to see this as an–either/or–situation? Is it them or us?
If we are ever rise above our animal instincts for survival, wouldn’t it be helpful for responsible people (in all walks of life) to refrain from immediately pushing the red attack button? Would not it be more conducive to promote the our abilities to challenge ourselves to look for ways to be inclusive, understanding and being KIND?
So for the rest of my sisters (and brothers) out there. I’m NOT at WAR with anyone. If there is a WAR out there, it is the WAR of WORDS to promote misunderstanding, false alliance and misplaced emotional direction.
Might I suggest that our sisterhood resist WARs, declaring our intent for a higher level of understanding and inclusion? Or maybe, we all could do without televisions?
Be gentle with yourself and your sisters.
