A Woman’s Answer to the Fourth Question

This night we take the time to slow down, to relax, and to weave our tales. We have earned this respite in time. On all other nights we are mothers, wives, partners, scholars, teachers, chauffeurs, cooks, maids, working women, and leaders. Tonight we stop. Tonight we take time for ourselves, to relax, and to enjoy one another as sisters.
