Rosie the Riveter
Last night I dressed the part of Rosie the Riveter, and a friend of mine turned the pic I took into a meme, so I thought I would share the pic, and also the Reason behind choosing it.
Surprisingly, a few people knew who I was trying to portray by name, but sadly, most did not. They had no idea who I was impersonating, much less what I was trying to convey.
So, just as a refresher:
The poster of “Rosie the Riveter” is an iconic piece of Americana history. Rosie symbolizes the countless number of women, during World War II, who stepped up to fill the factory jobs of the men who left to fight in that war. They did everything from producing munitions to riveting planes. They were incredible women who stood in the gap for the incredible men who had gone to serve their country.
In this country today, it seems we need to join arms again. This time for FREEDOM. This time to take our country BACK from those within who have tried to blind us to the reality of our plight and to steal our freedom one baby step at a time.
The Rosie of yesterday, gave Hope to men and women alike. She Encouraged them to Go on. She Repaired what was broken in both machines and the hearts of those around her.
The Rosie of today, would be better known as, “Rosie the Liberator” since our Freedom is the thing in need of “repair.”
I can only hope that the Rosies of Today will Step Up, Take a Stand, and Make a Difference Now!
We sure do need them!
