American women could not vote when Jerry (Geraldine) Emmett was born. But last night she marked her spot in history by announcing Hillary Clinton as the first female candidate nominated for president by a major political party in the U.S.A. Ms. Emmett has been an active member of the Democratic party for many years and claims life-long allegiance as she continues to live a long life! She arrived in Philadelphia to make the historic announcement of Hillary's nomination in person.
Regardless of which political party you are a member of or which candidate you support, appreciating the freedoms we enjoy and the ability to be recognized as someone still contributing to the world at age 102 deserves recognition and admiration.
There are still countries where women cannot drive, cannot vote, cannot own a business and cannot wear a bikini.
May we American women always maintain these freedoms and cheers to Jerry Emmett for reminding us that we are lucky to be aging in the U.S.A.!
