Today is International Women’s Day. Coincidentally, the best thing to ever happen to me comes in the form of a woman.
I am so proud of my wife’s work. She is a pediatric resident with a passion for ensuring that children are healthy, safe, and happy. Her future goals include a career in pediatric emergency medicine, focusing on child abuse prevention. I don’t care if you think I am overstating things, but she is truly changing the world one child at a time. Her selflessness and drive serve as my daily inspiration.
We should strive for a world in which all women are given the same opportunities to pursue their passions. Imagine how much life would improve if women were encouraged instead of suppressed. I know firsthand the intelligence, empathy, and love that results.
Here’s to you, ladies.
