Dear Ms. Judd, yes, paying attention to the suffering one is the most touchable work one would have. See Ms. Judd, you might have a quite life and somehow peaceful to be disturbed however, you risk yourself to travel to most dangerous part of the world just to see first hand to what happen to the less fortunate. To be a meaningful leader is not how you were born rather how God sees, regardless of the knowledge you might or might not have about Him in his loving kindness toward you. Yes, you are all women that fundamental truth, but not only that you are also the fabric of human being and all their successes come from you whoever denying this is a fool in his/her nature. There will be a time later when your position as women is very much valued by him when he gain his position on the world stage which is awaiting. Now encourage one another May The Lord give you a full courage to do that and be blessed.
