ENCORE PRESENTATION. Women's History Month Day 27. This was written in July of 2020 in preparation for the Women's Suffrage Centennial celebrating 100 years of voting rights for women, when we all heard the news that Congressman John Lewis had died.

During the 2016 Presidential Campaigns when Democratic Nominee Secretary Clinton was bullied within an of her life by the person who became the 45th President of this country, out-going First Lady Michelle Obama would say:

"When they go LOW, we go High."

What was she saying?

That Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right.
