1 mom liked this
My mom, she was a very loving and caring women. She not only raised her own 3children but many other foster children. Alot of those children are still a part of our family today and so are their children. It amazed me that she could be such a loving and caring women considering the awful man she was married to. My step father was a very mentally , verbally, and physically abusive person. She protected us all from him at the cost of herself many times. I love you mom and miss you so much <3<3<3<3

My old boss at the time ... I was 15 and worked pt after school at a social service agency & wanted to be just like her! She was intelligent, beautiful, charasmatic, CARING n dedicated to not only her work- where she was the only executive of color, but to her husband and her older parents n everyone who walked into her office! . I found myself wanting to please her and make her proud of me because she showed me more compassion n interest than my own parents ....

My grandmother and grandfather.   My grandma is in her 80's now but still the perfect example of a lady in all sense of the word.  My grandfather because he is the guru and just has thee most profound insight on life.  Amazing people with lots of class.

Isadora Duncan. My grandmother would tell me stories about seeing her dance and how she would stand up for who she was. And of course the way she died.

Also Zenobia of Palymra. A trilingual warrior queen who challenged the Roman Empire.

"Those who speak with contempt of the war I am waging against a woman, are ignorant both of the character and power of Zenobia. It is impossible to enumerate her warlike preparations of stones, of arrows, and of every species of missile weapons and military engines."--Emperor Aurelian

My family tends to tell stories of strong women.

Honestly, my dad. I was taught to never idolize celebrities because they're just people with lots of money. My dad died last May from cancer, but he worked three jobs just so we could stay in the finest neighborhood, and attend the best school in town. He rode a bike for about a year until we were blessed with a car. I love him and miss him dearly.
