Dear Readers,

In this special section devoted to women, we offer articles that reflect the many varied and interesting ways women choose to lead their lives…here in Tidewater, throughout the nation and in Israel.

Last year I heard Janet Green speak about her Jewish journey and her high energy ride through politics. I’ve no doubt you’ll find her path as interesting as I did, particularly during this rather turbulent election season.

Lisa Bertini, an attorney and mother of two college-age daughters, now finds herself employing her honed mothering skills and patience on her parents.

Dee Dee Becker shares a heart-breaking article about a friend whose beautiful 19-year-old daughter lost her life to meningitis. This mom is dedicated to making certain other moms don’t experience the same tragic outcome she did through her efforts with the Emily Stillman Foundation, which she founded in memory of her daughter.

Of course, there’s more.

With Mother’s Day around the corner, it’s time to honor our moms…those wonder women who somehow manage to perform a little bit of every profession, often while also managing their own careers and volunteer activities. After all, what mom doesn’t sometimes act as an attorney, physician, chef, politician, entrepreneur, fashion designer, judge and teacher at home?

And so, to every mom, grandmother, special aunt and friend:

Best wishes for a Happy Mother’s Day!
