    Hello Danica:
    To me, the most impressive part were those two mothers whose lives changed on 9/11… in so different ways, and yet, so similar.
    Saludos.

    Hello Danica,

    Thank you for this review! I was in shock when just one week before TEDWomen, I was informed by AOL and Blackberry that I was 1 of 4 winners of the TEDWomen’s contest and would be flown down to DC to attend the conference. I had no time to psychologically prepare for the event, and having never been to any TED event before had no idea the ride I was in for. My brain has been reconfigured, my heart has been cracked open and my life will never be the same.

    My experience, I imagine, was like many others who attended for the first time and the reason why one SHOULD attend if possible. Hearing any one of the speakers would have been an inspiring experience. Hearing them all back to back over two days was overwhelming and actually painful for my brain. I really do believe that something fundamental has been changed within me from the mere magnitude of hearing one speaker after another.

    When I hear one speaker in an isolated experience inspire me, I am easily able to say, „oh she/he is a remarkable person. Look at what they think and who they are. How inspiring.“ I can put distance between myself and them. I don’t equate myself with that level of brilliance and potential. But hearing the speakers one after another, so different from each other and each incredible in their own right, put ME in the equation. If them, than me. And so it has become. I will not let anything stop me now from bringing mothers the support we deserve, both in the US and abroad.

    Thanks for being on this miraculous journey with me.

    Hi Liz,

    Congratulations on your Award, I am so glad that after your experience, you had a chance to participate at the conference and hear all these women stories.
    I’m not mother yet, but I’m pretty much scared when I hear and read not so nice experiences of other mothers. No one guarantee that, if I decide to be a mother, things will run smoothly. I appreciate my mother even more, being strong and able to brought up us, her children.
    MY respect to you and all other women.
    Solidarity, support and help among women in challenging times is the most important thing I learnt during these two days.
