For The Boys

I love all the empowered women stuff out there.  As a woman, I love it.  As a mother of two girls, I love it.  As a mother of two boys, I hesitate.

I want my girls to know that they are powerful.  I want my boys to know the same thing.

I want my girls to know that they can do anything.  I want my boys to know the same thing.

I want my girls to know that they should never back down from anything they believe in.  I want my boys to know the same thing.

I want my girls to know that everything that is special about them is precious and unique and to be respected.  I want my boys to know the same thing.

I want my girls to know that it is ok to cry, to take breaks, and to recharge.  I want my boys to know the same thing.

I want my girls to know that it doesn’t make them weak to have compassion and empathy.  I want my boys to know the same thing.

Tonight I am thankful for the movement of empowering women.  And I am thankful that in this house the goal is to empower people, all people.
