Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind,

but great actions speak to all mankind.

--- Theodore Roosevelt


Quotes – I love quotes because there are thoughtful messages from many great people. Theodore Roosevelt makes an excellent point, “Great actions speak to all mankind.” What the world needs now are actions that are positively making a difference in this world.


Yesterday, we celebrated Martin Luther King Day. I went to the movies to see Hidden Figures. I was so inspired by three women who made a significant difference in the field of Aerospace Technology. It is a true story that takes place in the 1960’s when women struggled in a man’s world to get a job or a position that took a woman outside of teaching, nursing, or the secretarial pool; but if you were a woman of color, it was even harder. They say, behind every great man is a woman. John Glen was lucky he had three women - Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Dorothy Vaughan!  


Before long, it will be Spring Break. Parents, if you’re looking to take your children somewhere to inspire young girls and boys to respect both sexes and to become a better citizen, there are several Women Museums and Women's Exhibits throughout the United Sates:

National Women’s History Museum, Washington, D.C.

The Women’s Museum, Dallas, Texas

Women’s History Museum, San Diego

Women’s History Museum, New York

National Women’s Hall of Fame, New York

Colorado’s Women’s Hall of Fame, Colorado



It shouldn't matter what sex you are, your nationality, race, or age, the world deserves the best and most competent people to achieve the American and/or worldly goals. Females, in general, have been lagging behind way too long. Respectfully, all children need to be inspired and know opportunities are available to all people.

Good morning Patricia Feager ,

What a thoughtful post! You are right.... of course we need to expose our children to more venues that inspire them to become good citizens and value their freedoms which others have fought hard to provide for us.

Hi Patricia Feager - I was a young girl in Houston in 1960 and could not understand why I couldn't drink out of certain water fountains. I need to see this movie to understand the context.  Thanks for highlighting this.

Patricia, beautiful post. I agree parents need to expose their children to things that inspire them to value the freedom they have - many fought for these freedoms and continue to fight for them. I love the photo you included, she looks so confident and her smile radiates happiness.

Girl Power all the way.  It is amazing how women have been treated as less than equal to men for so many years.  We have showed them baby!

Patricia, that photo says it ALL. In this day and age when movies seem to have taken on a package deal with mostly superheroes that aren't real playing to the masses, it's truly a gem like this that doesn't seem to get the Hollywood backing like they used to. I am grateful that some smart producers got this into the theatres. Who knew about these women? It's inspiration at its finest. Larry and I love true life and inspirational films. A Beautiful Mind is one of our favorites.

Patricia I rarely go to the movies, but my wife and I went to see Hidden Figures on Sunday, and it is as you stated, an excellent movie.  I would HIGHLY recommend it, especially for families with kids.

I am going to see the movie and that is one with three great actresses that could read the phone book and I would be intrigued.
