Remember,if you are old enough, the old song" I'd love to change the world...but I don't know what to do..." Look it up on u tube ,it's a great old hippie song and works good for today!
You may have noticed a new button on my side bar,Jamie Oliver's food revolution.He is on a campaign to save our children.Did you know that this generation of children are expected to have shorter lives then their parents?Yes, it is true.Do you know what is going to kill them? Food. Sounds strange that the very thing that gives us life is killing them. Most of the things being fed to our children these days doesn't really qualify as food. Jamie Oliver is on a mission to educate children on nutrition and change the food system in the public schools.
I am going to go off on a small rant here...let me get my soap box. We are not teaching our young women the life skills of homemaking any more! I blame the extreme women libbers.Now, don't start your hate comments yet, hear me out. When equal rights for women started it was a great thing.Women should be able to get equal pay and rights,that is just a given. But somewhere along the way it got warped,women should reject every thing feminine and be men. In doing this I think this is where we failed,we stopped teaching our young women the life skills of home making. Let me tell you it is a life skill, just as important as learning computer skills! I don't care what path she takes,she can be a construction worker,at the end of the day the responsibility of the home and children and what the children eat ,are 99% of the time going to fall on the woman! Our young women need to be taught how to take care of their homes and families.They need to know how to cook from scratch instead of filling their children with processed,chemical filled empty food! Home economics should be mandatory in every school! Every child needs to know the basics of nutrition,cooking and home care!
I feel a change in feminism. It is more and more about embracing being a woman...celebrating what we are not trying to change it. This feels me with hope! We are not wrong or lesser for being women,we do not need to change what we are! We are wonderful and wise and powerful beings,the world needs us as the women we were meant to be!
Now we have to fix the mistakes of the past.We have to educate and save our children. We have to. They have no one else but us.
