               Almost every morning my mother reads Hoda Kotb’s current book I Really Needed this Today. I wish I had more time to do so as well, but I appreciate the aphorisms Mom occasionally sends my way. This one from August 31 fits what we Women Lawyers of Franklin County not only strive for but live: “A strong woman looks a challenge dead in the eye and gives it a wink.”

               As your president for 2020-2021, I am honored to serve our organization this year. Oh, we face challenges and challengers as we strive to uphold the law we love, the law that must be upheld even though uncertain times and questionable challengers seek to bend or break rules that keep our nation a democracy.

               An anecdote about my father, then still in law school, comes to mind. Close to tears, shaking his head in dismay, he uttered about the 1968 courtroom protests of the Chicago 7, “Where are we? What are we doing?” And yet, the law survived; our country absorbed challenges; our nation rebounded, grew stronger. We learned; we recognized other views.

               Now, as president of the Women Lawyers of Franklin County, I intend to carry out the promise I made in my letter of appreciation to you midsummer. Recognizing challenges and challengers, I intend to carry on, support, to expand our commitment to each other and to justice. Together we support each other; together we overcome supposed obstacles. We look “a challenge in the eye and give it a wink.” In fact, we are professionally stronger because of it.
