An open letter that urges mothers to raise their daughters “to think like they breathe fire” is getting a lot of attention. The post was written out of concern for Anna Duggar who chose to stand by her husband amid trying times.
The viral post was written by Jessica Krammes Kirkland in an attempt to shed light on what Duggar must be experiencing right now.

Kirkland, who is also a mother, tried to show how difficult it must have been for Duggar to fulfill the expectations of her husband, her family and the religious circle they belong to.
She said she cannot help but think of her. After the Josh Duggar molestation scandal, which resulted to the cancellation of their show on TLC, Josh Duggar’s name came out along with other Ashley Madison members in a recent hacking incident.

Josh Duggar later made a statement via The Duggar Family website admitting to to opening two accounts on Ashley Madison, a website for people seeking to have extramarital affairs. He also confessed to being a porn addict.
“While she was fulfilling her ‘duty’ of providing him with four children and raising them. She lived up to the standard that men set for her of being chaste and Godly and in return, the man who demanded this of her sought women who were the opposite. ‘Be this,’ they told her. She was. It wasn’t enough,” wrote Kirkland who is saddened by the fact that Duggar was made to feel she is “not enough.”
Moreover, Kirkland urged mothers to educate their daughters and “give them the tools to survive.”
In the last part of her post, she wished Duggar realized her own power. She ended it with a powerful and empowering line: “As for my girls, I’ll raise them to think they breathe fire.”
