In the midst of all the troubling news of today, all that is so disheartening in the seeming lack of progress women have made despite decades and more of painful struggle and dreams broken, a voice that draws still-living hope out of the darkness and inspires us to stand tall, together, centered in patience as well as action and love instead of anger, is welcome indeed. So read the words below and perhaps share this for others to do so as well. It is by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, the author of an empowering book for women called Women Who Run With the Wolves (1992).
Women of today, don’t dismay. Rise up. Keep hope. And run with the wolves.
