“I see you…I love you. I take you in.” ~Viola Davis
I believe we as women must see each other and recognize the wisdom, strength and tenacity in one another. I believe we must take each other in. The response that Viola Davis shared with the NY Times is so profound.
Let’s take each other “in”
Let’s recognize a woman who is doing great.
Let’s send massive amounts of love and support to one another.
NY Times Question: What did you and Taraji P. Henson, a fellow nominee in the drama category, say to each other when you won?
Viola Davis Answer: First of all, that was like the second or third time we hugged through the night. She said, “I love you,” and I said, “I love you more than anything in the world, I love you!” That’s what we said. I think at the end of the day, people want to be seen. And I think that’s why it was important for me and Taraji to acknowledge that in each other, to not just feel like it is competition, to just say, I see you, yes, I see you, too. I love you. I take you in.
