International Women’s Month & 100 Years of the Right to Vote

From Mary Chaping Carpenters beautiful song “Why Walk When You Can Fly”

In this world there’s a whole lot of trouble, baby
In this world there’s a whole lot of pain
In this world there’s a whole lot of trouble
But a whole lot of ground to gain
Why take when you could be giving, why watch as the world goes by
It’s a hard enough life to be living, why walk when you can fly

In this world there’s a whole lot of sorrow
In this world there’s a whole lot of shame
In this world there’s a whole lot of sorrow
And a whole lotta ground to gain
When you spend your whole life wishing, wanting and wondering why
It’s a long enough life to be living, why walk when you can fly

In this world there’s a whole lot of cold
In this world there’s a whole lot of blame
In this world you’ve a soul for a compass
And a heart for a pair of wings
There’s a star on the far horizon, rising bright in an azure sky
For the rest of the time that you’re given, why walk when you can fly
