Recently, during one of my private English lessons, we read a story about Ida Lewis, a famous female lighthouse keeper from Rhode Island. She and her mother inherited the job from her father who died when Ida was still very young. Ida didn’t just control the light, either, she actually went out herself and rescued people in a rowboat. Anywhere between eighteen to thirty-six people. That is some hardcore badassery, and she wasn’t even a full-grown adult when she started the work.
I love stories about badass women. They inspire all kinds of stories for me.
Aaaand that’s today’s post.
