Stronger Together – this open letter in the Harvard Crimson gave me goosebumps. The Harvard women’s soccer team, famously described and derided in the men’s soccer team’s “scouting report,” addresses the situation. They are named, and they speak for themselves. I love what they say about learning to work hard, move past challenges, and that we are stronger together. I very much appreciate their ackowledgement that there are a great many good men in the world. I’m sorry to see their acknowledgement – which resonates with me – that the reduction of women to their looks is still common in the world.
30 Best Young Adult Books of All Time – Thank you so much for Hilary & T for sending this along – what a marvelous list! I of course love seeing my favorite book, A Wrinkle in Time, on here, as well The Giver. But I also love the way this list isn’t the same as all the others, and includes several titles that are new to me. I will be exploring these books for sure.
Love Warrior – I am finally reading Glennon Doyle Melton’s book (thank you, Pam, for sending!). Oh. My. God. It’s like a freight train of glory already, heading at me at a million powerful miles per hour.
I write these Things I Love posts approximately monthly. You can find them all here.
