We Roared Loud…Together!!!
Not to rub it in but if you didn’t attend the BOND Girl 2012 Meet & Greet/I Am Woman Hear Me Roar Gathering, my, my, my you missed a great treat. We had such a great time and there was so much love and support pouring in the room that many are still beaming. Women from all around DC, Maryland and Virginia and from a variety of backgrounds attended Friday’s Gathering with the sole purpose of roaring. Who knew that the roar would be so in sync and in such unison that a touching harmony was formed? The feeling of being amongst women who understood your struggles, could fill in your blanks when you didn’t have the right words to express, one who shed the same tears you shed was just absolutely moving.
