The Old Woman Who Live in a Shoe

There was an old woman
Who lived in a shoe
She has so many children
She didn’t know what to do
She gave then some broth
Without any bread
She whipped them all soundly
And sent the to bed

Read the nursery rhyme above and picture this woman, she is a mother, a sister, a daughter. If you think you have never seen a woman like this. Go to your local high schools, go to the nearest low income housing building in your community, go to your local super market.There are women all around who look this woman. They are living in poverty and having children for men who do not want the responsibility.

It is time we acted as strong women. We need to tell teenage girls that it is not ok to get pregnant out of wedlock. We need to tell them to avoid risky behavior and we need to tell them that they deserve more than a guy who will profess love and sleep with them. Then walk away.

Think about this, are we really showing our young women how to love themselves to the point that they will not let anything or anyone come in the way of them finding physical, emotional and spiritual success?
