Today, March 8, 2019, is International women's day.

The women in this world are sacred. Women are closest to the Creator as they alone can create the miracle of life. 

Today is a day we honor the women in our world, our mothers, our sisters, our cousins, our aunts, our grandmothers, our daughters, and friends. 

Today we honor you, and we thank you for the gifts you have given us. We thank you for the wisdom you offer and offer our blessings in return.

In this regard, here is a selection of photos I have taken over the years highlighting our worlds sacred women warriors.
