Internet Rallies Around Fired CTV Female News Anchor
Lisa LaFlamme is 62, and she should be able to have the choice of wearing her natural God-given hair. Sadly, this is a struggle for women in that their beauty can make or break a career on TV.
People actually began the hashtag #KeepTheGrey in support of the CTV female news anchor. They want to show her support in the midst of her hurt.
Now, many women are posting with their gray hair to encourage that this news anchor is not alone and that they too have made this decision. Even businesses are showing major support.
Wendy's even changed the color of the child logo to have grey hair to show support. Some women have been blessed with words of positivity for this decision, including podcasters. However, this is a topic needing discussion. And women need to be treated fairly when they make this decision.
God shares his thoughts about gray hair often in the Bible. He even refers to gray hair as a glorious crown. We can celebrate age because the Lord gives life, and it is a blessing to be commemorated.
"Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteousness." Proverbs 16:31
