Women Dancing for Change

Thought for today: If women ran the world would there be wars?

Today I'd like you to take a look at a short video clip. The exuberance of the music & the women simply dancing in public speaks louder than words. It shows an example of how women protested without violence & made a powerful statement.

I saw the movie War Horse this week. Perhaps my favorite scene in the movie is when two men from opposing sides of the battle free the horse from barbed wire in a brief cease fire. Those men were allowing their caring, "feminine" sides, out to save the life of a suffering animal. If people would simply put down their weapons & interact as human beings to save the lives of their fellow men, the world would be a very different place.  Could feminine solutions to differences put an end to wars? As women become more involved in politics & less afraid to use their feminine sides to confront the problems we face hopefully we will see changes & a reduction of combat. 

Have you ever protested without raising your voice? What did you do? Whether you are a man or a woman, do you let your "feminine" side out to help you resolve conflicts & differences? Share your ideas & thoughts about music, dance, creativity & changing the world. Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts and dreams!

Great point -women certainly tend to look less to "fighting it out" than men than negotiating - i have often wondered what the world would be like if more women ran the world than men! Thanks for the post and I LOVE THIS BLOG - SO COLORFUL!!!!
