About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. This is from my daughter, who wanted to read what mom wrote today. Looks like she can spit fire as far as, if not further than, her mom.

    Wow – never let your daughter run out of pencils!!
    We are messed up eh!? One half of the world is hysterical about child protection, the other insists a girl is already a woman. Some middle ground please, World!!

  3. boomiebol says:

    Wisely, and powerfully written. Out of the mouth of babes…well done Zoe

  4. unfetteredbs says:

    strong fiery daughter, strong fiery Mom…strong tree

    • oh, Lord yes. She never would have been born in another country, one such as this, because her mother would have been stoned long ago…But by the grace of God, these women and girls could be us.

  5. I’ve read all your posts on this topic Susan ~ you must be very proud of Zoe ~ the fruit does not fall far from the tree

  6. Green Speck says:

    Child Marriage should be stopped everywhere. It’s a pathetic practice !!!

  7. Rhonda says:

    Rock on sister Zoe! May she always have the passion and fire she does now. She’s the best of herself and the best of her Mother…I know you are very proud Susan, and you should be. She should be proud of herself.

  8. nelle says:

    Powerful and brilliant in presentation.

  9. Powerful, Zoe, full of rightful indignation. And for your information, some of the girls kill themselves or at best, run away from home rather than face marriage to men as old as between 50 and 70 years. Well done. 🙂
