Marching Past

I read somewhere that it was Women's History Month. I have been to the cancer center a few time recently, and I was reminded of the terrifying measures that they used to employ on women who had breast cancer. As rough as things are now, there is so much more consideration and support for all people who have cancer.

Also this week, C told me a story about his class. It seems in the Weekly Reader there was an article about a women's rights issue. His class had a discussion about it, and all the girls and C were for the rights, and the other boys were not. In C's interpretation the substitute teacher even tried to persuade him that his view was misguided, and tried to appeal to him emotionally. He resolutely stood steadfast, stated his refutation to the sub, and even convinced another boy in his class.
