No Ceilings in this Home

Bones was at school the other day, at lunch with a some girls and his two guy friends, when the girls got up. They were going to a 'women's empowerment' seminar.

Freshman in high school, mind you

Bones said, "Hey, we'll go!"

And so Bones and his two buddies walked into this seminar, in an auditorium, full of girls except for the three of them. Oh and the speaker's body guard or as Bones said, "Some dude in a three piece suit and an ear piece."

Bones listened to her speak on when she was the Ambassador to Hungary and with what she does with her philanthropic time.

He listened to them talk about women's issues.

And finally he looked at his buddy and said, "I don't get it. My Mom has a traditional man's job, I guess."

And his buddy looked at him and said, "I don't get it either. My Mom's a sheriff's deputy".

And they continued to listen, flipped through the book they got and Bones said, "I guess, I come from such strong women, my Mom, my aunt, my grandma... women can do anything."

His friend said, "I know."

And he finished with, 'Girls need someone to tell them that?'

We have come a long way... it makes me happy.

So many feminists make women less than what they can be, in my mind. Instead of "follow your passions" they hear, you don't need a man. Instead of "work hard and you will achieve" they hear "you are treated unfairly and must fight". God for the boys for McGeath, but better for them to look bind and realize how amazing their moms are!

'. . . women can do anything.' "Girls need someone to tell them that?" PERFECT!

Bones and his friend get it. Kudos to you and his friend's mom for clearly showing that a ceiling is only there if you want it to be. ;-)
