Today I read, “We Are All Bound Up Together,” by Frances Ellen Watkins Harper. I was captivated by her strength when she was left a widow. She writes, “I stood within the shadows of my home.” Harper’s journey was not easy. She was left only one thing along with four children , a looking-glass.  Because she was a woman Harper was  “without a single feather bed in this wide world . . . ”  Harper rose up against inequality and declared to women, “we are all bound together in one great bundle of humanity.  . . ”  Thanks to women like Harper who paved the way, I have been able to equally support myself-providing for my family after the loss of my husband. What an inspiration!
