WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH
Our celebration ofWomen’s History Month continues! #SurpriseTheStruggling’s seventh highlight this month is the selfless jewel, Linda Saar-rah Sumpter—#SurpriseTheStruggling’s Diamond Ambassador from Philadelphia, PA. Are there any words to describe this jewel? To be able to summarize what she stands for and means to #STSGLOBAL? We do not think so but we are going to try our best. From the beginning, Ms. Linda has been true to her word and an invaluable supporter and Ambassador to our organization. She has selflessly given of her time and love to support, promote, and represent #SupriseTheStruggling and our mission. She, herself and her organization, has been a surprise to #STS. Countless times, we have retrieved the mail, and there was a package filled with beautiful purses and toiletries to aid us in our mission.
Ms. Linda has filled our hearts with courage, inspiration, and strength. She has been a mentor, a friend, a sister, a mother, a go-to for information. She is a wealth of knowledge and wisdom that cannot be obtained through books but only through life experiences, and she shares this with us every day. It is truly beyond our words to express the esteem in which we hold Ms. Linda. We are not only grateful for the day that our paths crossed, but honored and blessed to be in the presence of such greatness—a woman who is leaving an indelible mark on this world; creating a legacy worthy of generations to come. She is the epitome of strength and fortitude, earning her place as a woman in history that is raising the bar for all other women. Simply put—We LOVE Ms. Linda. Because of her, we are better human beings.
