Sitting here eating my Chick-Fil-A nuggets, I decided I wanted to start a blog. I have spent most of my adult life writing for my clients or for causes that I believe in, but tonight, on Friday, August 13th, I decided I wanted a blog. So, here we go. I’m not a superstitious person, so, I don’t think the fact that I started this on Friday, the 13th means much, but it is ironic that I begin this new journey today on a day most people consider unlucky. I did have a pretty rough day. I own a business and we had a few challenges today, but as always, we worked it out.
I had lunch with a good friend who is an expert on the woman’s suffrage movement. On August 26th, we celebrate the 90th anniversary of the 19th amendment that granted women the right to vote. As I listened to my friend Paula Casey, I was amazed at her knowledge on this issue and can’t wait to read the book The Perfect 36. I will share more with you about this movement after I read the book. I’m working with a group of women to coordinate an event honoring elected women in Memphis and Shelby County, Tennessee on August 26th in honor of the anniversary. A bipartisan group of women have come together to put this event on led by my friend Adrienne Pakis-Gillon. It should be a fabulous event hosted by Memphis Mayor AC Wharton at City Hall. This event is open to the public and starts at 4 p.m. That’s it for today. I think I’m going to enjoy my blog. Later.
