This is about my someday daughter, already stung stained with insecurity begging, "Mom, will I be pretty?" I will wipe that question from your mouth like cheap lipstick and answer, "No, the word 'pretty' is unworthy of everything you will be and no child of mine will be contained in five letters. You will be pretty intelligent, pretty creative, pretty amazing, but, you will never be merely pretty."
