This week is the 21st anniversary of the Montreal Massacre, as it was called at the time that this terrible event occured. We commemorate this day when we lost 14 women to violence at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. 

Remembering the massacre of these women makes me saddened that there is this kind of hate in the world. I counter my sadness by focussing on the positive aspects of education for women and girls. The hope for the world is in our ability to envision a future where women and men have the ability to choose their own paths in life. When women have education they invariably choose the number of children that they will have and that number is generally small. Certainly smaller than when women have less education. 

When you feel disheartened you can take efforts to change your perspective. If you want to make a difference in this world know that you can effect change if you wish. We can and we do.

Check out this heartening TED talk http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/hans_rosling_the_good_news_of_the_decade.html

For inspiration read Greg Mortenson's books "Three Cups of Tea" and "Stones into Schools"

Watch the film "Born into Brothels" or follow the work of Rick and Adrianne as they travel through South East Asia and bring the basics of life and education to so many people, mostly children. I will post the updates from KIDS as they come in to me. Their current update is on my blog.

I’m impressed, I need to say. Really ralrey do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you will have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the difficulty is one thing that not sufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my seek for something referring to this.
