Fast forward over a hundred years and we see the video below. Why is it wrong to throw like a girl? Why is it seen as derogatory to do anything like a girl? This needs to change and quickly before we allow any other young women to grow up in a world that places them in a situation where they are deemed inferior or second class citizens.
The lesson for me, whether a young boy or girl is to teach them to be confident, independent and stand up for your convictions. Don't accept injustice without letting your voice ring out. Take a stand and be heard! You can be nice, mind your manners and still be a leader. Find your passion, your mission and be the change you want to see around you!
I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be
Everybody's searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfilled my needs
A lonely place to be
And so I learned to depend on me
