「The 21st Century has brought many changes in our societies. The world seems to move faster, the younger generations demand instant gratification, and the population is at a standstill as less and less couples choose to get married and have children. For those who do, most families no longer have the luxury of women staying at home and taking care of the children as the double income has become mandatory.
Women have proven that in general that they work just as hard or harder than men, they take pride in their accomplishments, and strive for excellence in the workforce. Sadly, women are rarely looked at as equals at the office and therefore the women have to work harder, smarter and more diligent than their male counterparts. As a result of this, women have excelled in many fields and are finally being recognized by countries like China, the US and other powerful nations. Women make incredible partners as they are instinctively protective of their families, actual or within an organization.
Japan and the United States are both facing an economic crisis that risks their currently known existence. Can each country turn their financial crisis around? Possibly. Would it be better to work together for the good of both. Definitely! Workforce development is key. Countries are run by people and people include both men, women and children. So why not take advantage of the rest of the population? Why shouldn’t we include our greatest resource to turn our countries around – our people! Our biggest kept secret is the power of women! Let us work together for the good of all to restore the glory and the power that was once ours and let us educate our children so that they can excel without discrimination or prejudice.
Our world is a borderless world. It knows no boundaries with the internet and technology. It is people that put boundaries up and it is our generation and the generations that follow that will take those walls down. This is our only hope for peace in the world and each and every one of us needs to take a role, however small, in making this a reality.」
