My Powerful Little Girl

Today I decided to speak about one of the most powerful women I know, and she doesn't even know it yet.

My oldest daughter, Naama. She is a very sensitive little girl, who stood up together with me in front of the camera crews and news reporters, and did an excellent job of expressing her thoughts to the world.

My daughter who usually shies away from people she does not know, participated in many interviews, took lots of pictures, and shared her thoughts because she knew it was so important.

I was getting ready for a demonstration, that was to be a convey of cars towards the prime ministers office last week. Naama overheard a conversation I was having with a friend of mine, and immediately asked me about what was going on. When I told her what it was going to be about, she asked if she can draw a picture to hang in our car.

The translation of what she wrote was: "This city is ours, and the extremists cannot live here with us".

I was so impressed because it said nothing against ultra orthodox, non orthodox, conservative, gentile, or any of the like. It focused only on those who are causing such an uproar in our city.

I really would like to think that the actions of my powerful little girl, might possibly make a change. A change that our nation as a whole needs, to continue living along side so many different people.

I hope that the powerful actions of many of us big and little girls, eventually creates an environment where no one can dictate to how we should be living our life.
