So said Kermit the frog. He knew what he was talking about. Some days it is hard for all of us to be who we are. It certainly must have been so for all the strong and independent people that I know. It is true for everyone that I know -even if we do not always know how hard it is for some people.
I seek to highlight those strong and independent women of my family as well as the many others who have influenced me. I came of age at the beginning of the so called women’s liberation movement so it was important to me and my friends. I was blessed to have a mother who inspired independence – even if I did not always appreciate it!
