If I Had a Daughter.....

...she would have been called Phoebe.   If she'd turned out like this young woman I'd have been very proud.  In a world where there are so many people who feel defeated and doubtful that they can make a difference she stands out.  She is proof that there is hope and that individual activism is powerful stuff.


  1. What a great example of assertiveness - in the face of some really horrible bullying from other passengers!

  2. Brave young woman. One person making a difference. Shame on the hostile passengers, particularly the English guy. Elin Ersson, we salute you.

  3. Erin, I salute you. I have now read the full story in the press and she is going to make an excellent social worker which is her chosen career.

  4. She was fabulous, trust a gobshite Brit to stick his nose in.

  5. i like to think i'd be that brave now ,but im not sure..
    i certainly wasn't at her age
    sometimes ordinary people can do extraordinary things and we need to stand
    up and be counted
