Awe-Inspiring!

Before my daughter started Kindergarten, she decided that she was going to be a piano player when she grew up. At Kindergarten, however, a boy told her that girls couldn't be piano players. She believed him and became convinced that she would never be a piano player. After I read She Persisted, however, she was quiet for a moment, then said, "I'm going to be a piano player when I grow up!"
