Wednesday Women: A Celebration of Woman

Berlin, Take My Breath Away
It’s the one year blogiversary for Carolyn Micander Mohr’s blog, The Wonder of Tech. But this is no mere symbolic milestone because Carolyn has achieved a reach and audience that most bloggers can only hope for. And she’s not all just about iPhones and Androids either!
And the coolest of the cool came to Carolyn’s party! Here’s just a sampling of the kudos Carolyn is getting from the blogosphere.
I can’t believe that you’ve manage to all this in such a short time. It’s just amazing. You’re a huge inspiration, and I feel like I’ve known you for many many years.
This tech-not will continue to stay tuned Congrats again!
Happy Blogiversary. I am so glad that I found your blog. I really enjoy coming here and have found a lot of good tips. I look forward to seeing what else you come up with.
I just can’t believe that you have achieved such success within such a short period of time- it is truly commendable!
You are doing beyond great Carolyn, let’s see what the next year brings.
Happy blogiversary! You’re a shooting star, Carolyn. Keep on doing the awesome that you do!

Dr. Brené Brown illuminates Martin Luther King Jr.’s thoughts on light, darkness, and love.
Dr. Brené Brown’s TED talk, The Power of Vulnerability, inspired me to speak about love. But I am not the only one inspired by her TED TALK. My friend, Janet Callaway, and many other bloggers are among Brown’s fans.
So I wondered what she’s been up to and then I came to see for myself. I like it. As it turns out, Brené Brown is a magic pixie!
But I need more!
And I need more light. And others too. Recently, yet another Tibetan set himself on fire in protest to the oppression of man by man. It breaks my heart.

Speak up. Step Up. Stand up. That’s what Susan Mazza is saying.
About speaking up, Susan writes:
If you feel you have been labelled in a way that limits or diminishes you in some way, don’t let it slide – speak up.
About stepping up, she writes:
Stepping up is about taking personal responsibility through your actions for who you are, how you occur, and what you do in the world regardless of your circumstances or what other people do or say.
About standing up, she writes:
Standing up is about being willing to declare a commitment and then backing up that commitment with your words and deeds.
Looking around the internet, I want to see more people speaking up, stepping up, and standing up. For the right thing. Speaking from their hearts. Doing the right thing.
As their own conscience, heart, reason, or perhaps, even God, dictates – not as I dictate.
I want to see more people living bravely, feeling strongly, and being true. And if you want to see it too , you and I must lead by example. We must exhibit the beauty of it, the goodness of it, and the trueness of it. We must show the world how brightly love shines.
Are we shining? Or have we become monsters?
Heroism, holiness and a fully formed conscience is the antidote to the banality of evil.

4. Day 497 by Nisha Varghese
When opportunity knocks, open selectively.
That’s what Nisha learned on Day 497 of her blog, Adventures of Me.
Nisha’s blog is about the challenges she faces living with Cerebral Palsy, her journey towards independence, and a gauntlet that she throws down to haters and pitiers. Because Nisha is MORE than her disability.
I’m so happy for you that you got a job! No job is easy and meetings will suck, but what a wonderful milestone in your journey!

He was considered an average student. The other kids bullied him. Later, he earned his keep at Cambridge University by cleaning the rooms of other students, serving them meals, and doing other odd jobs.
But he was also the first scientist to be buried among Britian’s kings and queens in London’s Westminster Abbey.
Who? Go read Sandra’s blog post!
I very much enjoy how Sandra illuminates the lives of heroes and giants like Harriet Tubman, Clara Barton, Maya Angelou, and Booker T. Washington. She teaches us through her short, mysterious biographies. She teaches us wonderful things about ourselves through the lives, struggles, and accomplishments of others.
What was most interesting to me about this scientist (apart from what Sandra has to share with us) was that he also believed in God and, more specifically, in Christ: his divinity, his sacrifice, and his resurrection. And, more interesting than his faith to me was that he was very certain that Christ shall return.
By the scientist’s own calculation, Christ returns in 2020 something.
