Who said Girls can't be in ARMY I repeat Who said?????


Around 3am in the morning I was going to sleep after preparing for the exam.I thought to make sure the gates are locked or not so I went to check it,somehow my cat sneaked out while I was checking the gates
I tried finding my cat for 30 mins but in vain and Then I heard cat fight roars from my neighbor's house.I was shocked,I went and knocked my neighbor's door but nobody was opening and the strays were beating my cat inside their porch
Due to no electricity door bell was not even working.I had no option left to jump into my neighbor's porch
and Yes I climbed the wall and jumped into my neighbor's porch with fully aware that the house belongs to a retired colonel who always stays angry and ready to shoot anyone.
I finally found my cat hiding under the car and was not coming towards me as he was scared.I had to lay down and went under the car to get my cat
But the problem was how to get back to my place as the gates were locked
I had to again jump from my neighbor's house to my House
My arms,legs and feet were injured with scratches but totally worth it

Women can do anything,We are stronger then men
When we set a goal we achieve it.
Now I prove the people who said I can't be a war Journalist or a war photojournalist because I'm a girl!!

Amen Sister!!!

You got that right!! You did it. We do mighty things everyday and our potential is only limited by our own thoughts. Anything you put your mind to you will do!

I loved that story. I have a cat, I know how stubborn they can be.. Very good description, made me put a smile on my face.

God Bless

You can be what you want to be, as long as you have set your heart on it.

Never lose focus.

Dear Mahrukh

Reading your post made me feel like i was watching Jack Bauer in 24. But you are totally right we are capable of many things we just have to put our minds to it. Men are threatened by us because they know that we can perform better than them in many things. As women God blessed us the intellectual ability and the perseverance. Thanks for sharing.
