Today we celebrate International Women’s day.
I honor and celebrate my mother who suffered so greately in the hell of concentration camps.
I remember and honor all the women in my family, and the millions of women who were killed during the holocaust.
And today I light a candle and honor all women around the world who have suffered crimes of injustice and are still suffering crimes of injustice.
My prayer is for that injustice towards women be wiped out
My prayer is that we honor and celebrate our feminine
My prayer is that we uplift instead of tear down
My prayer is that we recognize our worth in each other
My prayer is that we place ‘love’ above all else
Artist ~Suren Voskanyan
Please join me on this day of sisterhood and name the women you are honoring.
