I set myself a challenge today, International Women’s Day…

…and chose to write to Elizabeth, a girl, 17 years old, soon to become a mother, who has chosen to fight for a better life for herself and that of her child…



I don’t know her story, but I know that it’s a sad one. And yet she has such a beautiful smile.

For me, today is about celebrating Elizabeth and others like her. Where do they find the courage to fight? How do they ever trust again? I just don’t know.

I think the strength women possess passes understanding. Especially when they realize how much they are Loved.
