I hope y’all can forgive the unfancyness & insophistication of my poorly composed photo and see through to the deeply heartfelt sentiment underlying it. It was the best I could do without ripping off someone else’s better looking image, and I wanted to express my own thoughts instead of sharing someone else’s no matter how much prettier it may be.
I know this will come as small comfort to those of you who have endured or are enduring any form of abuse or oppression at the hands of a man or men, but I want you to know that, in my job as a probation officer, I take an uncompromising stance against men who abuse or mistreat women in any way. I use every means at my disposal not only to punish an abusive man but even more importantly to educate him and try to make him change his way of thinking about and treating women.
I am fortunate to have always had a large number of strong, supportive women enriching my life. Since I began blogging in 2016, I have been repeatedly amazed by the writing, art, and thoughts shared by the women of WordPress. I am often humbled by your talent and consider myself lucky to hear what you have to say.
So all you Women, ALL of you, stay strong, stay proud, and stay YOU! Celebrate yourselves today and every day.
Take care, be well, and happy blogging!
