A word about Meghan
Thank you to one of my followers, Laurie Doyle, for allowing me to post this tweet. It is a view that many of us share.
"On International Women’s Day, we need to have a conversation about Meghan Markle. As a mother of a teenage daughter, I’m thrilled to bits about this wonderful American, soon to be Brit, having the limelight in a world of trashy Kardashians. It’s such a breath of fresh air to have a poised and articulate lady, be a proper role model for my daughter, and other young women and girls today.
She dresses appropriately, she speaks with confidence and has a genuine enthusiasm to meet people and do good work for charity. I cannot wait for her to be an official member of the Royal Family. The world needs more Meghan Markles.
I had to take a break from Twitter this morning. It was so disheartening to read things about Meghan not being ready or not having confidence. Really? How about on international woman’s day, we as women, consider lifting each other up instead of tearing each other down? She’s a person who has been thrust out there and is doing a remarkable job at making it look easy! With racial slurs and demeaning criticisms about everything from her hair to her posture...it’s not nice and it’s not helpful, and it needs to stop."
