A Woman of Integrity - Day 12 Challenge

     Today I saw a woman treat someone with such subtle prejudice, you might have missed it, if you were a white woman like me.  Although I am in a situation where any wrong actions or reactions could affect my future career, I saw the prejudice and couldn't let it slide.  I stood up for the man and took a stand, knowing it was risky to do so.  It is not like my heroes who fought injustice in the Civil Rights Movement, but I am glad to know that I am a person who can stand up for what is right, even when there are personal risks involved.    
Day 12 of the challenge to find myself - you are a woman of integrity.
