100 years old and still voting!

This gorgeous woman is Anna Vieira Cabral Spencer. Anna was born October 14th 1918 making her 100 years old today. Her mother said that she came to stop WWI because the war ended less than a month after she was born. What an incredible honor to meet and photograph this intelligent, fierce and beautiful woman that has seen so much life.

Keep in mind this insane fact.

-The Nineteenth Amendment (Amendment XIX) to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920. This means she is older than true democracy in our nation.

Of course she voted last Tuesday.

Thank you Anna and Len Cabral for welcoming me into your home.
