A day to remember...

International Women's Day is celebrated throughout the world on March 8 every year. It is a day to focus upon and remember the struggle of women for peace, social progress, education and better lives for their families and communities. For us, it is an opportunity to take a minute out of our busy day and pray for women everywhere...

We certainly have established ourselves finally...We have our very own day. What a wonderful idea. I know we can all use a little kindness and a prayer.

Take care,

This year, Canadians will celebrate International Women's Week (IWW) from Sunday, March 4, to Saturday, March 10, with the highlight being International Women's Day on March 8.
THEME
Ending Violence Against Women: Action for Real Results is Canada's theme for International Women's Day (IWD) 2007. This theme reflects Canada's approach to addressing gender-based violence.

IWD 2007 provides an opportunity to focus our collective attention on violence against women and girls in Canadian society and to consider concrete measures to end this social problem.

Now more than ever, we must take action to end violence so that women and girls are able to participate fully in society.

This year, as we affirm our commitment to ending violence against women, let us also celebrate the women of Canada, past and present, and their vital role in making this one of the greatest countries in the world. IWW 2007 is a perfect time to celebrate Canada, where women and men enjoy equal rights in all aspects of life.

As the IWD 2007theme underscores, when we work together, we can achieve tremendous results.

Thanks for your kind comment about my accident.

International Women's Day is not really celebrated here so a small group of us chose to mark the day by writing about women that were important to us.

Taking the time to stop and pray for women everywhere is a wonderful effort to unite us!
