Notes mothers write

You never know where you might find one.

Growing up, perhaps a note in your lunch box. In your teenage years, a strongly worded note posted to your bedroom door regarding the bio hazards contained within. Or, the note in your luggage discovered while settling into your first college dorm room. Notes making a difference.

Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 8.48.24 PMIt gives me great joy to think about a mother tucking a note inside a son’s suit. A note encouraging a son to vote “aye” in order to give women the vote.

I hope you’ll enjoy the starring role of a mother’s note in this dynamic music video – set to Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance – providing a quick history of women’s suffrage.

What note will your perfectly, perfect self write to make a difference and be the change you want for the world?

    Thanks for the post, Linda, especially finding that second in the video when the note is revealed and running with it. It is true, written or not, our notes to the willing can make a huge difference.

    On another point, I cannot seem to shake the last image in the video that seems to show that suffrage resulted in the vote and in the ability of women to “choose” shoes that will cripple them and hamper their free movement. Consumerism is so incidious.
