So what if we don’t look like everyone else?

I am deeply humbled by this lady. Quite inspiring.
Jen Bricker was born without legs and with her heart on the opposite side of her chest. Shocked an uncertain they could care for a child with two birth defects, her biological parents gave her up for adoption. In her loving adoptive home, there was just one simple rule: “Never say ‘can’t.’” And pretty soon, there was nothing that this small but mighty powerhouse set her sights on that she couldn’t conquer: rollerskating, volleyball, power tumbling, spinning from silk ribbons 30 feet in the air.
The Oscar-nominated film Hidden Figures tells the story of African-American women whose maths skills helped put a US astronaut into orbit in the 1960s. But the history of black women working for Nasa goes back much further – and they were still struggling to get the best jobs in the 1970s.
In 1943, two years after the US joined World War Two, Miriam Daniel Mann was 36 years old. She had three children, aged six, seven and eight – but she also had a Chemistry degree.
Job opportunities for married women were limited then, especially for those with children, and even more so for African-American women. Continue reading NASA’s Black women ‘computers’ sending man to the moon and back … Miriam Mann, Christine Darden, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson …. #HiddenFigures
It’s a big job, but someone has to to it … the weight of the world …
Michelle Obama spoke from the heart to female voters’ emotions in a speech today from Manchester, New Hampshire, by expressing how deeply upset she was by Republican nominee Donald Trump.
The First Lady refused to let Trump’s latest comments be minimized. “This was not just a lewd conversation. This wasn’t just ‘locker room banter.’ This was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior.” What followed should be required reading for every man, because this is what it feels like to be a woman in America today:
‘Last week we saw this candidate actually bragging about sexually assaulting women,’ the first lady said. ‘And I have to tell you, I can’t stop thinking about this.’
‘It has shaken me to my core in a way that I could not have predicted,’ she said.
The first lady, who was campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania and North Carolina since her barn-burner of a convention speech, warned her audience that they wouldn’t be getting that stump speech today.
I listen to all of this and I feel it so personally, and I’m sure many of you do, too, particularly the women. The shameful comments about bodies, the disrespect of our ambitions and intellect, the belief that you can do anything you want to a woman? It is cruel, it’s frightening, and the truth is, it hurts. It hurts. It’s like that sick, sinking feeling you get when you’re walking down the street, minding your own business, and some guy yells out vulgar words about your body. Or when you see that guy at work that stands just a little too close, stares a little too long, and makes you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. It’s that feeling of terror and violation that too many women have felt when someone has grabbed them, or forced himself on them, and they’ve said no, but he didn’t listen
