March is a Month to Be Remembered

Herstory comes alive every March

But one month to celebrate is not enough

So many still thrive

to be recognized

and yet are still deprived

of basic needs

and to honorably succeed.

This month of this year 2020

is filled with so many fears

only women know how to persevere

GBS said, “women are life’s force.”

and of course

They know to cohere

and to take action

where needed

Let me just mention a few

who knew exactly what to do

when times were blue.

Amelia Earhart, Eleanor Roosevelt

Maria Montessori, Gwendolyn Brooks

Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou,

Jane Fonda, Princess Diana,

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor

Malala Yousafzai, Mae C. Jemison 

Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton

Barbra Streisand, Oprah Winfrey

Marie Curie, Katherine Johnson

and so many more to mention and honor.

This March will be a month to be remembered

because women will make the difference again.
