Women firefighters douse flames during the Pearl Harbor attack.
This image makes me — I can’t really describe the effect it has on me. The first time I saw it, I got choked up. Look at those women. They look so strong and brave and capable, they are of all shapes and sizes and nationalities and they are so beautiful to me. These women stepped out of the kitchens that society told them they ought to stay in when war came, they took up the challenge like a boss.
