Your final three words for this week are:

A willful, stubborn child with a mind of her own, my parents would say; hanging their heads in shame or their palms in anger.

Such a rebel-rouser and wave-maker she is, the aunts and uncles would say; shaking their heads in pity and exasperation.

Your child is the most unyielding, obdurate and uncompromising teenager I have ever had the utter misfortune of having in my high school; the principal bellowed at my parents.

Why can’t you be like these other kids? My father asked, leading me out of the school by my ear; classmates jeering and pointing at the troublemaker.

The professor read her essay, absorbed her views and long-range plans when elected to public office; and stood in awe of this young woman he felt honored to have in his class.

Her love stood in front of her, awe and admiration in his eyes. He thanked her for being such a wonderful willful and stubborn woman with a mind of her own.
