On the Backs of Others: Celebrating Women's History Month

It does not escape my acknowledgement and understanding that I write a blog that is viewed on a global scale, that I am a woman and this is Women’s History Month.  It does not go unnoticed that I host a radio show from a southern state in the United States of American with listeners as far away as Bosnia and in February we celebrated African American History Month.  We've come a long way.

I get it. I am cognizant of the fact that others sacrificed so that I can do the things that I do.  I have fully connected with the concept that the struggle of others allows me the liberties I enjoy today.  I understand that it is because of others that I get to have these experiences and a multitude of others.

I know that I did not get where I am today on my own.  I know that I will arrive at the next stop on my journey on the backs of many.  There is nothing about me that has not been shaped by the commitment and at the cost of others.  This month is Women’s History Month and I openly share my gratitude for the men and women who gave of themselves so that I could live freely today.

Thank you!
