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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
