International Women's Day

Every year on March 8 the world celebrates International Women's Day. On this day, we honor the women of the world, their accomplishments and contributions to the worldwide community!

My hero for this year is CNN camerawoman, Margaret Moth. This amazing and courageous woman committed her life to documenting the world on camera. She bravely entered war zones, and other hazardous areas to keep us informed. During the Bosnian War in 1992, Ms. Moth was shot by a sniper and almost died. After two years of reconstructive surgery, Margaret insisted on returning to the career she loved, and back to war zone she felt compelled to document. Although she died yesterday, her legacy will continue to inspire us all.
