Day 25 POTD: We Can Do It!

I just love my daughter's lunch box! She didn't take this to college with her, so now I get to have it on a shelf in my kitchen. I get to have it with lovely thoughts of her being a young woman courageously finding her way in this world, and how we as women have a legacy from the brave women in the '20s who fought for our rights to vote in the U.S., and the women of the '40s who challenged conventional beliefs about what women can do as they worked long hours in workplaces that had previously been closed to them. So when we're thinking we won't make it to the end of 2008 with 366 photos, think of this lunch box and remind yourself, "We Can Do it!"
