Joan of Arc is a hero among many in the 100 Years War, a proclaimed messenger from God and we are able to get a face to face interview with her right here and now!

Me: So, Ms. d' Arc, how does it feel to be such an iconic woman in a history of oppressed women of the world?

Joan: It feels great just to have carried out the mission that God had given me. I knew what I must do, so I did all I could to carry it out. My life had been decided and I am glad that God had touched me out of everyone else in our world. It feels so amazing.

Me: When did you first hear the voice from God? Was it a messenger of the Lord himself?

Joan: It was not the Lord himself, but the Arch Angel St. Michael, St. Catherine and St. Margaret; he first came to me in father's garden. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was walking in my father's garden, and like miracle, I heard them, they told me that I must deliver my people from the English, in the war. I knew that I had to do it, and as you know, I did.

Me: Tell me, what was it like fighting with the army?

Joan: It was such an honor, at seventeen, I was the younger person to control an army. Of course, before I had any of this, the King had to prove that I was genuine and he did and gave me control of the French Armies. It was thanks to God, that I was able to fight for so long. I was able to gain back the land of my people, and in the end we did win. I felt so important being able to use the gift bestowed on me, the mission I was given to help my people. My injuries were terrible, but I knew what I had to do. I had to keep morale up you know *laughs*. All in all, I will say it is the most important thing I ever did.

Me: What would you say to people who believe you were hallucinating, or even suffering from Schizophrenia?

Joan: I will not fight their beliefs. I know that God came to me; I know that he was with me, if he wasn't I could not have made it that far.

Me: What would you say to women today, who still face discrimination of their gender?

Joan: If I am able to find God and accomplish so much, then that shouldn't stop women everywhere from discovering their mission, just as I had discovered mine.

Thank you for reading folks, hope you enjoyed her astounding insight.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. " --Marianne Williamson

I liked it! Hope you get an A! :)
