She Can Do It – Honoring my Daughters on International Women’s Day

I have been influenced and taught by these women their whole lives. They always would offer that they could solve the problem, fix the issue, and heal and support each others feelings….whatever they needed. Now the world is getting the benefit of my daughters.

They are true citizens of the world. Strongly influenced by my wife, they have been well educated, culturally sensitive, and part of the local, regional, and/or international community with their professions.

I am proud to be their dad as they advance the health and wealth of their family and the safety, academics, and health status of their communities. Proud to share this testimony to my daughters on International Women’s Day. #women
