Something to think about …. “On the day after Mother’s Day … an afterthought”!!

WHO IS RAISING THE KIDS?

Has anyone out there had this same thought?

I must confess I have. I’ve seen it in my own family.

A three year old already has his own iPodTouch!

Another toddler I know has his own iPad … the parents ask for this permission to be able to use it themselves!

All four grandkids are “fluent” in techno language.

Sometimes even more than me.

That is scary!

I can understand why this happens.

Hand them the electronic gadget and there’s instant peace and quiet.

Instant gratification for both adults and kids.

Yet, at the expense of what?

International Women’s Day …. “Google Doodle 2016”!!

ONE DAY I WILL

On International Women’s Day, share your aspiration with the world

Over the years, Doodles have commemorated the achievements of women in science, civil rights, journalism, sports, arts, technology and beyond. It’s always an honor to pay tribute to women who have changed the course of history, sometimes in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

But for this year’s International Women’s Day, we wanted to celebrate the Doodle-worthy women of the future.

So we gathered our cameras and pencils and visited 13 countries where we spoke to 337 women and girls and asked them to complete the sentence,

“One day I will …”

From toddlers to grandmothers, the women in San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Lagos, Moscow, Cairo, Berlin, London, Paris, Jakarta, Bangkok, New Delhi and Tokyo all sparkled with personality. Each new city brought more “One day I will”s, more signature dance moves, more hugs, more high-fives.

The aspirations we heard were as varied as the women and girls who shared them, from the very personal – swim with pigs in the Bahamas – to the very global – give a voice to those who can’t speak -and everything in between. When it was done, we found that our own “One day I will…”s had grown bigger and richer, inspired by the women we had met.

~~International Women’s Day Doodle 2016: #OneDayIWill~~

~~Published on Mar 7, 2016~~ 

Over the years, Doodles have marked the achievements of women in science, civil rights, journalism, sports, arts, technology and beyond. But for our 2016 International Women’s Day Doodle, we wanted to celebrate the next generation of Doodle-worthy women—the engineers, educators, leaders, movers and shakers of tomorrow.

So we visited 13 cities around the world and asked 337 girls and women to complete the sentence “One Day I Will …” Then, we made this video.

From San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Lagos, Moscow, Cairo, Berlin, London, Paris, Jakarta, Bangkok, New Delhi and Tokyo, the women we met make up a diverse mosaic of personalities, ages and backgrounds. And their aspirations are just as varied—ranging from the global to the very personal, from discovering more digits of pi to becoming a mother to giving a voice to those who can’t speak.

We also asked some more familiar figures to participate, including anthropologist Jane Goodall – who wants to discuss the environment with the Pope – and Nobel Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai and activist Muzoon Almellehan, who are working fearlessly toward a future where every girl can go to school. Despite already impressive accomplishments under their belts, these women continue to dream big.
