We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

We hold these truths to be self-evident
that all men and women are created equal
that both are endowed with certain inalienable rights
that among these are unencumbered hearts, body and soul

We affirm that no man should raise an arm
Be it in malice, misdirected anger or chauvinism
Against a woman
that history has writ that no battles
no victory
no fair judgment was cast
on a society that butchered women souls

We affirm that in the nature of things
that man could chase an animal into a river
that man could jump a building to capture a ruffian
that man could scale a wall to fix a window pane
that women could walk unharmed in raging battlefields
that women were never intended to be objects of hate
that women were designed to create peace

In light of these, this declaration is hereby made
on this 11th of February  in the  year of our Lord 2011
that all men and women are created equal
that our laws will punish a man who maims or kills a woman, imagines,
or acts in a manner to suggest that he intends to do so and all other
intentions or acts not captured here.
