This is likely not the way that Anna Duggar wanted to celebrate her upcoming wedding anniversary to Josh Duggar. Anna Duggar has become the latest victim in a string of individuals that her husband has hurt, either intentionally or unintentionally. However, Anna is not solely a victim in this situation. She has also been a source of inspiration for some women – particularly for Georgia mother Jessica Kirkland.
Kirkland is the author of a Facebook post that has gone viral and admits that she “couldn’t stop thinking about Anna.” The post says she will teach her daughters to “breathe fire” as they get older, and social media can’t get enough of it. In a Facebook post dated August 20, Kirkland noted that she was “feeling like (she was) fixing to preach about some Duggars.” She encouraged parents of daughters, in particular, to inspire their daughters to be empowered.
“Parents, WE MUST DO BETTER BY OUR DAUGHTERS. Boys, men, are born with power. Girls have to command it for themselves. They aren’t given it. They assume it and take it. But you have to teach them to do it, that they can do it. We HAVE to teach our daughters that they are not beholden to men like this…UNACCEPTABLE. Educate them. Empower them. Give them the tools they need to survive, on their own if they must. Josh Duggar should be cowering in fear of Anna Duggar right now. Cowering. He isn’t, but he should be. He should be quaking in fear that the house might fall down around them if he’s in the same room as she. Please, instill your daughters with the resolve to make a man cower if he must. To say ‘I don’t deserve this, and my children don’t deserve this.’ I wish someone had ever, just once, told Anna she was capable of this. That she knew she is. As for my girls, I’ll raise them to think they breathe fire.”
To date, Anna Duggar has not released any statement regarding her husband’s latest scandal, though in the wake of the child molestation scandal that Josh Duggar was embroiled in within the last few months, she said, “When my family and I first visited the Duggar home, Josh shared his past teenage mistakes. I was surprised at his openness and humility and at the same time didn’t know why he was sharing it. For Josh, he wanted not just me but my parents to know who he really was – even very difficult past mistakes.”
In the wake of the fact that her husband had two Ashley Madison accounts, Anna Duggar’s brother Daniel Keller has sworn that he will not stop fighting to see his sister and his nieces and nephews leave his brother-in-law.
He has referred to Josh Duggar as a “pig” and said, “I told her I would go get her and her children stay w me. She said she’s staying where she’s at. But I won’t stop trying to get that pig out of our family.”
Jessica Kirkland, though, has found Anna Duggar an inspiration behind her determination to raise her daughters to “think they breathe fire,” and as of August 25, Kirkland’s Facebook post has received over 430,000 likes and over 200,000 shares.
