Free to Be... You and Me -- Forty Years Later ... Thanks, Marlo !!!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/marlo-thomas/free-to-be-40-years-later_b_2206066.html

In some ways it seems like yesterday. The early days of Early Childhood Education and Sesame Street and being proud to be a female. The rules taught then and today in Kindergarten are still a struggle to attain.

Marlo was at the forefront and many, many strides have been taken that benefit men and women, boys and girls, gay and straight, etc. We've come along way, but we clearly have a long way to go.

2. yeah the 80's, when electronic voting took hold

Sorry, I still can't believe Reagan was ever really elected. Not by Americans, anyway.

3. True, but we can't give up. It's the human struggle and we have many mentors

to be proud of and to help us move on.
