Within the walls of the United States Capitol Building there is a statue, “The Portrait Monument”, which honors the Women’s Suffrage Movement. But what makes this Statue really unique, is the fact that it is not yet completed.
As of now the statue withholds the carvings of the key women in the Suffrage Movement: Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth C. Stanton, and Lucretia Mott. Everyone is aware of the long and hard battle these women lead and fought, and they are surely women to be honored. What they accomplished has impacted America, forever.
“The Portrait Monument” was created by Adelaide Johnson, from 8 tons of marble. Johnson had in mind that though America had come a long way from the Suffrage Movement, there are still many issues regarding Women’s Rights. Due to the few issues she left a piece of the rock, un-carved for a future Women’s Rights leader. My assumption is that when America elects its first “Madame President” this statue will be completed.
My personal hope is that this statue will be finished with a beautiful face from Alaska. I have faith that Governor Sarah Palin will be inaugurated, and carved into this beautiful master piece as the First Female President of the United States of America. Governor Palin has already made history due to her Strong, Maverick Soul, why not make even more?
Many people ask me, “Why would you want Governor Palin to run for President?” They ask as if it is unbelievable, that I could want such a thing. But then I give them an earful regarding my explanation! I inform them that I am tired of the Washington Elite playing “politics as usual”. I want a leader who is known for and has a record of, listening to her Constituents, tearing down corruption, and leading by example. Governor Palin has proven herself with everything she has done, in her personal life and her Political Career. She does not just talk about the “change” she will provide, she does it! It reminds me of the quote, “A little less talk, and a lot more action!”
Coming from the youth perspective, it is a must for my chosen Political Candidate to believe in America’s future, and I am confident that everything Governor Palin does is for the sake of her Children’s futures. Governor Palin understands we must restore America to its former greatness to create a better and brighter future for America. She understands the logical and the right things to do for the American people, because she is not a Politician, she is a citizen, and that is what we need in the White house. We need a Wife, a Mom, and a Maverick! Palin 2012.
