A round of applause to all the women in the world who contribute so much to our quality of life. 


In the words of Bob Dylan - "Stay forever young".


May you grow up to be righteous

May grow up to be true

May you always know the truth

And see the light surrounding you

May you always be courageous

Stand upright and be strong

May you stay forever young. 


Don`t let people say you can`t do something because you can - if you believe in yourself.

Don`t say I can`t, say I can instead.
