Growing up, I couldn't wait to get home from school to watch certain shows on PBS kids. I often wanted to skip school, lay in bed and eat a bowl of cereal with my stay-at-home-mom just so I could catch up on Wishbone and Arthur and the Magic School Bus to name a few. The network has definitely been a trademark of my life, and I hope that its around when my little girl or little guy wants to snuggle up next to me and be addicted to tv.
As a young women, I'm appreciative of the lessons that I learned from these television shows. I must admit once I became a teenager, I gave up PBS for MTV and the other hip sites. It wasn't until I was interning at the United States Capitol Hill that PBS would make its debut to my heart again. I happened to attend the premier of the Freedom Riders, a documentary done by none other than PBS. My initial fascination came back to me and ever since then I refuse to part ways with the network. I'm hanging on to it like a child with it's favorite stuffed animal.
Most recently, PBS has been on a mission to acknowledge torch-bearing women throughout our lifetimes. Again, this network is offering me lessons. An official documentary was made, and also several other videos featuring some of the most renown women and some women that we aren't so familiar with. So today, I'm sharing this with you. Go find your reason to fall in love with PBS again. I'm sure at some point in your life, its made an impact and will continue to do so. After viewing the site, I must admit, I aspire to be one of the featured stories one day.
The things I write about are the love of my life and the life of my love!
