Celebrating International Women’s Day

We see the same world under different skies
We feel the same emotions
We speak the same words in different languages
We understand each other
We are women

We are all different nationalities
And we believe in different Gods
We are Christian, Hindu, Muslim
Yet, we understand each other
We are women

We go hungry for our children
Walking miles so they survive
We live our lives under different skies
But, we understand each other
We are women

Today we dream courageous dreams
And we pass them on to one another
We speak our stories in different languages
And, because we are women
We understand.
