Aun queda mucho por hacer

Mañana se conmemora una vez mas el día internacional de la mujer, han sido años de lucha de parte de varias lideresas que han puesto corazón a su granito de arena para lograr que el ambiente de desenvolvimiento de una mujer, tenga mejores condiciones. Ha sido una lucha por la igualdad que ha generado grandes cambios. Sin embargo hasta esta fecha aun queda mucho por hacer y aun podemos lograr lo mejor para las niñas que se están formando en un vientre, o que están creciendo para ser las mujeres del mañana. A nosotras nos ha tocado disfrutar del esfuerzo de las que se esmeraron en el pasado, lo que significa que tenemos la plena obligación de contribuir con algo.
Y es comprensible que nuestros recursos muchas veces son limitados pero podemos empezar desde lo que esta a nuestro alcance, como la educación a nuestros hijos, donde se les inculquen valores de respeto hacia el prójimo, el no perder ese espíritu de lucha que debe caracterizar al genero femenino y donde cada día se debe ver como una oportunidad para cumplir los sueños e ideales.
Conmemoremos este 8 de marzo de 2014 con la certeza de que tenemos mucho para dar y que valemos demasiado porque la mujer es un gran tesoro con virtudes y cualidades y con una fuerza incomparable que no se doblega. Feliz conmemoración del día internacional de la mujer, QUERIDAS MUJERES. Y a usted apreciable CABALLERO ¡gracias! por valorar a la mujer :)

There Is Still a Lot Left to Do

Tomorrow commemorates once again International Women’s Day. Many women have put their heart and soul into creating an environment that supports better conditions for women over the course of many years of great struggle. It has been a struggle for equality that has resulted in big changes. However, there is still a lot left to do and we can still do much to support girls not yet born, and those who will become the women of tomorrow. We have fully enjoyed the benefits that the generation before us have brought about, and this impels us to contribute to the future.

It is understandable that oftentimes our resources are limited but we can start with what is in reach: like educating our children, instilling in them values such as respecting one another, and to not lose that fighting spirit that should manifest itself in all women—where everyday should be seen as an opportunity to fulfill one’s dreams and ideals.

We commemorate March 8, 2014 with certainty that there is much to give and that women are something to be valued as a treasure—with virtues and qualities, and a strength that cannot be doubled. Happy International Women’s Day, dear women! And to men, thank you for celebrating women!
