Better Than The Alternative

image

I once met Gloria Steinem. In 2006, I worked as a temp receptionist at the fancy New York City hair salon where she got her hair done. 

After I checked her in for her appointment, I asked her, having read about the seemingly insurmountable obstacles she faced in trying to accomplish her life’s work, “Why did you do it? Why did you fight so hard for what you believed in? Did you just persevere or something?”

And she responded, “I did it because it was better than the alternative.”
