Grandma and Margaret Sanger

After my grandmother passed away we were going through her pictures.  One really stuck out to me.

It was my grandmother and several other women in a living room. I noticed that one of the women looked familiar and I went to my mom. Mom said, "I believe that is Margaret Sanger."  An open encyclopedia later confirmed it. Grandma knew the pioneer of birth control.

I wonder if my grandmother was an activist--and I know she probably was.

I wonder how much of planned parenthood was discussed in that parlor.

I wonder and then I feel an immense bit of pride in my grandmother.
