Welcome Elizabeth Cady Stanton (Henry Brewster Stanton)

"Whatever the theories may be of woman's dependence on man, in the supreme moments of her life he cannot bear her burdens." --Harriet Cady Stanton

Good Mourning Widows. Joy to you and me.

Today we honor and welcome into our joy-ous club, that's right the club nobody wants to j0y-n, famous spokeswoman for human rights for all humanity widow of famous abolutionist Henry Brewster Stanton. Whew!

Elizabeth and Henry were married 47 years and had 7 children.

Elizabeth was a published author and fighter for women's rights. She joined forces with Susan B. Anthony to form the National Woman Suffrage Association.

Elizabeth was ahead of her time. She insisted the word "obey" be left out her wedding ceremony.

After her death, her daughter, Harriot, pictured with her above, carried on her work.

Mourning Joy:

Q: What part of your body has the most rythmn?

A: Your ear drums.

Mourning Quote:

"Wishful thinking is the order of the day. You feel a bit silly--like you're rubbing Alladdin's lamp in hopes that a genie will pop out. But keep polishing that lamp, because magic does really happen." --Horoscope

After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen. Open that JOY-nal.

What is your wishful thinking this crisp winter day 20 miles north from where the World Trade Center used to be?

Why not write it?

Go ahead.

I dare you.

Have a joy-filled day Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
