For day 21 of the June 1-30 challenge, found here, we are to talk about someone we would like to honor, or give a 21 gun salute. There are so many people in my life that deserve to be honored for so many things. Since I like to play both sides, I’m going to post the dedication page of my last published thesis for those I would like to honor. For the other half, I’m going to explain what type of honor I would seek.
My acknowledgements page:
The author wishes to express sincere appreciation to my wonderful husband, Brian Michael Butler, who has worked tirelessly and gone beyond expectations so that I could complete my degree. I also want to thank my three beautiful children, David Elliot MacDonald, Kristin Nicole MacDonald, and Gavin Herschel Butler, for always making me want to be a better version of myself, no matter what it took to do it. I want to thank my mother, Baila Miller, for showing me the value of an education and instilling in me a love of learning. I want to thank my adoptive father, Neville Silver, for giving me encouragement and always reminding me that I can do anything that is thrown my way. I want to thank my brother, Michael Todd Levenson, for being my cheerleader. And I want to tell you all I love you. I want to acknowledge my Father, Dr. David Elliot Levenson, who died when I was nine. I have the fondest memories of his kindness and love. I miss you. Lastly, I want to thank my thesis committee, Dr. John Burke, Dr. Alyssa Gilston, and especially Dr. Edward Cumella. Dr. C, for helping me to produce the best, most thorough, most interesting, and statistically correct paper possible, I thank you. Your guidance and encouragement has helped me understand the importance of my thesis. It would have been a tragedy without you.
For my part, I wouldn’t say I want or need to be honored. However, when I began this quest, I was using the Dr. Ruth 2point0. It was meant to be a nod to the awesome and sexually vocal Dr. Ruth Westheimer, arguably one of the most notable names in the way of sex authors and speakers. She gave a generation of women the okay to be sexual.
If I am able to write even one thing that is as relevant or moving to people as she was, I have done what I set out to do.
That’s enough for me.
