I’m sharing a couple of things that have been so meaningful for me recently.
Last week I marched in very cold weather for the Women’s March Muskoka,
2019. I was so taken with the men, women and children who marched
along with their signs, being a voice for change.
I’ve often heard people saying, “Feminism!!” And think it’s Rah Rah Rah,
and announce that they are not a feminist. Really, it’s just about rights,
respect, inclusion, equal pay, safety. Isn’t this something we all want for
our spouses, mothers, sisters, daughters—for all the women we know?
It’s just a voice for basic human rights. It was a very moving experience
(this year and last) and something I was very proud to be a part of.
And another great moment was interviewing Heather Hay on my ROGERStv
show, Real Life Talks. She is truly an amazing person who is a voice for elder abuse prevention and also the President of Fierte Pride Canada.
When I think about women’s rights, advocacy for our elderly population
and for our LGBTQ community…it’s all the same message! It’s about
Just Showing Up, letting people know they have value, they matter and
they deserve happiness and to be respected.
The greatest message that Heather shared was, Be the One Who Cares.
I love that. Be the one who cares when anyone is being neglected, abused,
bullied… if you see something, say something.
It’s the same message no matter what the situation.
I encourage everyone to watch this episode with Heather, march when you
can or be a voice for everyone. We are all each other’s responsibility.
Thank you for being part of our community!
