Another Icon is Now Gone


This has been a sad week for news, especially related to news of significant women, considered icons. First, we lost the stunning beauty and advocate, Elizabeth Taylor. Today, we learn about the loss of Geraldine Ferraro.

Geraldine Ferraro was iconic because she was the first woman to be nominated as the running mate for the position of Vice President, back in 1984, running with Walter Mondale. Although I was a bit of a novice regarding politics, at the time, I was thrilled and suddenly extremely proud to be a woman since society was finally recognizing the power and strength of women in our modern worlds. Growing up during the “women’s movement” I stood my ground, speaking up and the more I listened to these powerful and strong women, the more I wanted to be more than a ‘homemaker.’

Although Ferraro did not become Vice President, she stood her ground, refusing to allow men or her actions to weaken her, or intimidate who, and what, she became.

We, the women of America, will miss Geraldine Ferraro. It is unfortunate that the big “C” word has taken another victim. Just when will they find a cure to end Cancer — for Every One! Although I was never permitted the privilege to meet her, I admired the courage, determination and strength she held, not just for women, but for the US of A. Rest in peace, Geraldine. We mourn your passing.

  1. You really make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually something which I feel I’d never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely vast for me. I’m taking a look forward to your next publish, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!

  2. I have been surfing on-line more than three hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s lovely price enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web can be much more helpful than ever before. “Where facts are few, experts are many.” by Donald R. Gannon.
