Isabel Allende: Tales of passion
I agree, Amanda! While I can't say all women would do well in a leadership role, they do often carry the natural nurturing role to take care of each other. While many men grow up to be macho and tough, including having to show off to his buddies that he can make the mark and even reach "top dog" at all costs; we also know that men can be good leaders and role models. However, I believe the difference here is the 3rd world countries where men are still extremely domineering and continue to grow up in an environment that believes it's ok to treat women as subservient. Great comment again!! Thanks! ;-)

Isabel Allende: Tales of passion
Thank you, Sonia!!! You provided the comment I was going to add until I seen yours!! This is not about our "poor selves" here in one of the richest countries in the world - it is about those that don't have the resources in the undeveloped/3rd world countries that shouldn't even have to ask for our assistance! We all have the ability and even share some responsibility in taking care of our fellow humans on this planet. No one should should still be suffering as Ms. Allende described! May we all band together and make the world a better place!

What if we told every child on the planet, every single day the phrase: "I Believe In You". In 20 years, what kind of society would we be?
Deborah, my mom just turned 60 and is finally beginning to fulfill some of her long held dreams. She felt for 40 years that it was her primary responsibility to help her kids achieve great things and that her time had come and gone. After much encouragement and getting her the tools she needed she is moving forward. She now signs all of her emails with a quote which happens to be one of my favorites: "It's never too late to be who you might have been." ~ George Eliot

It takes someone with a strong vision to make changes in the world as we have seen by other leaders before us. This is one of those situations that it's not a matter of should we or could we, it's not even a matter of trying. It is something of a responsibility of humanity that has not yet caught fire and I believe the world is now crying for it. If we want to see changes in the world then we must be willing to BE that change in the world. Always follow your heart and intuition, no matter how difficult something may look, the world needs people that are willing to step outside of the usual boundaries and make a difference. I back you 100% and then some! I BELIEVE IN YOU, Joe!!
