We've now set foot into the month of March. This is the time when stories by women are becoming recognized by people all across the country and even all across the world. This is the time when contributions formed by women give off some level of influence captured by girls today and future generations to come. This time is called Women's History Month.
Yesterday afternoon, Michelle Obama shared a photo to the world showing her visitation to her alma mater Whitney M. Young Magnet High School from this past fall season with her friend Robin Roberts. Included in the picture are a group of Whitney Young dancers either finishing up class, getting ready to begin class or taking a break to smile with Michelle, Robin and their teachers.
Michelle opened Women's History Month to her followers with this message while posing in the photo with these young dancers:
As we enter #WomensHistoryMonth, I’m going to keep focusing on the stories of the history that’s being made today. I’ll be telling you about young women I’ve met recently—young women who are making the most of the opportunities created by the generations who came before them. I met this first group of young ladies when I visited my alma mater, Whitney Young on the South Side of Chicago, last fall with my friend Robin Roberts. They’re working hard in their classes, expressing themselves through dance, and dreaming big for themselves in the years ahead. It probably goes without saying, but I see a lot of myself in these smiles. And I can’t wait to see what they become. #FlashbackFriday #IAmBecoming
While we're fresh in the beginning of Women's History Month, we all have the ability to focus on stories being created today that will one day become our history. While focusing on the stories of others, we also all have the power, gifts and talents to build our own stories that can turn into a magnificent historical narrative to our own children and other families from around the world.
