Module 2: Reading Assignment 5 - Judith

Dear Judith,

I want to tell you how proud I am of you. I am impressed by your courage, determination, and great zeal for the Lord. You not only did something incredible for yourself and your people by killing Holofernes, but I am sure that you have inspired many other women to fight back against men desiring to take advantage of them. You have paved a new way for women and have enabled them to see that they are to be respected and treated with kindness. You took a risk, but you did it for your people. It shows me how much you care about them and their safety. I believe that the Lord was with you. He helped you to be courageous, gave you the strength you needed to carry out the task, and will continue to walk by your side. I pray that He will give you comfort and peace, and that you will in no way feel guilty about your actions. You are a true heroine! It is wonderful to see someone stand up for what they believe in, regardless of what it may cost you. You have inspired me to continually do my best to stand up for my beliefs and be willing to face hardship in order to help others. Thank you so much for being the woman that God created you to be!
