Yesterday, my 8-year old daughter went to compete in her karate tournament. At the start of her event, I heard a Dad snickering to his young son about how easy it would be to beat the “little redheaded girl.” After her first three wins and as she sat preparing for the final round, I heard the same Dad, while munching on his words, warn his son how hard it was going to be to go up against that “tough redheaded girl.” 


In the words of William Shakespeare, “And though she be but little, she is fierce!”
