How can we let the words of our ancestry
Dissolve in apathy and lethargy?
Where are the thinkers, the readers, who learned from history
The way to the future, progression through evolution?
The mind is a precarious concept–it cannot be seen or touched,
But the mind can be starved, filled with anxiety, rushed …
To the point of no return.
We need to learn from the written word.
–Deborah A. Bowman

Thank you Deborah and yes, the site is correct. Thanks for writing the beautiful poem. I believe we do need to nourish our minds and simply read. I think of all the illiterate minds that could be helped by reading. Thanks so much for your support. You are awesome!
Wonderful advice, Deborah. Maybe as more and more women’s voices are heard in history things will change. In a way, we only have half the story. Thanks for sharing your wisdom.
Wise words, Deborah!
