Control our Money, Control Our Destiny: Women’s March 2017

January 26, 2017
I attended the Women’s March in Washington DC over the weekend.

One of the speakers, Kierra Johnson, the Executive Director of URGE, pointed out in her speech that “If someone else controls your body, it is they and not you that control your destiny.” Amen. I only wish that the women’s march could have articulated a parallel message: if you don’t control your money, you don’t control your destiny either.

In the story, the Little Red Hen asks for help from the other barnyard animals each step of the way in harvesting ingredients...
