Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Wow, I'm proud of these women!! - I kept thinking, before I came to your last statement, Beth. Thanks for sharing such powerful and positive news.

This is very good news. I'm sure it will make a *huge* splash in the mainstream media. :P

Thanks so much for passing this on. I am Roman Catholic and proud to be your cousin, Anglican women.

I think the drive to band together and exclude others is hard-wired into humans and one we share with many of our biological cousins, such as the chimpanzees. How aptly named are the primates!
