What an historic weekend!! Hello and welcome to the Girls Succeed blog!

USA Inauguration Ceremony January 20, 2017

The inauguration of the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, was celebrated on Friday, January 20. The impressive ceremony incorporated the tradition that has taken place every four years since 1789 when George Washington took the oath of President of the USA.

The inauguration is not a party given for the President, but rather it is a celebration of the passing of the peaceful transfer of power from one administration to the new incoming administration. The election was bitter, but even with all the divisions, the parties came together in peace.

Citizens of the world participated in the Women's March on January 21, 2017

Pastor Laurie Haller

Throughout the world, women ( and men) marched together for awareness and change. Pastor Laurie Haller explains why she marched on Saturday.

"God bless the millions of women, men, girls, and boys around the world who are marching today. Thank you for marching in love on behalf of equal opportunity for women and all those whose human rights, deepest yearnings, and dignity are minimized or denied because of gender, race, class, sexual identity, or entrenched attitudes of privilege." --Laurie Haller, Facebook Post

What an exciting world we live in. My mother always said, "Nothing is so certain as change." Hang on and have an open heart to meet the challenges and acceptance of change that is good for all.
