The Holidays bring out the best and worst in us. Let us hope we are evolving toward a better world, albeit with a few major bumps in the road. But it should be incumbent upon all of us to challenge ourselves to help make the world a better place. Whether that means making a donation to a charity, or not screaming and yelling at someone, it all helps. I wish we all could learn to be more tolerant of others, especially their differences, whether they be of color or religion. And I wish you all a Season Greetings and Happy Holidays.
Norman Rockwell created the image 70 years ago when American women joined the ranks of employment during World War II. Rockwell based his image of Rosie the Riveter on May Doyle, a nineteen year old who worked in a dental office in Arlington, Massachusetts. She worked as a phone operator in the office and probably never held a riveter (and hopefully not a dental drill either).
