A lot has been said about women, and how important they are for the future of the world. I don't think people here have even scratched the surface.
The fact is, many so-called "primitive" people understand the importance of women. Men may be the arrow, but women are the ones who direct the bow. In many societies, women are the leaders and the peacemakers. We really need that energy right now.
The women that have been elected recently to our government are a sign. They are a clear indication of the amazing changes that can come to us if we men stop trying to lead and start trying to protect the real leaders.
My youngest daughter Isa showed me the future.
In her last year of high school, she was chosen to be coxswain for the men's eight in rowing. She had to convince these eight strong, willful young men that she could lead them to victory, and after accepting her leadership, the team never once failed to take the lead, keep the lead, and win every race all the way to Henley, the most important rowing race in the world; Isa and her crewmates became world champions. Starting from knowing nothing about rowing, one of the most demanding sports in the world, she committed herself to learning every part of it. She became the assistant coach, and taught the young men and fellow classmates yoga and powerful visualization techniques to see their victory and accomplish it before it happened. Coincidentally, she sat in the back of the boat, steering, singing the rhythm, and dictating strategy, but was the only one facing forward, able to see what was coming and react accordingly.
This is one example of why I believe that female leaders hold the key to the future. This is an example of male power coupled with female wisdom, and that combination is one of the keys to a good and viable future for the human race.
