Happy International Women’s Day!Women make up approximately half of the world’s population.

Every person in the world has a biological mother with whom they were connected for at least 9 months.

Women are often the primary tradition-carriers in a culture — they prepare the traditional foods, teach the children when they are young to follow the social customs, and serve as teachers, doctors, political leaders, and many other important occupations as well.

And some women are inspirations for the rest of us: my friend Liz Elmont is off on a walk through the Dead Sea area to raise money for Dogs for the Disabled.

Here’s to the women of the world!

Today also happens to be our anniversary — Happy anniversary to my Tom, who remembered to bring me both chocolates and flowers today!

And congratulations to our younger child, whose Knowledge Bowl team placed fifth in a regional competition today.
