ABC Wednesday had us up to the letter “M,” while Three Word Wednesday‘s words were: Evident, Illusion, and Tragic.  Here is an example of why we must always remember to tell our girls they are worthy and wonderful – and our boys, too.  Amy

Megan’s Mind

Her illusion was her reality
That they stared at her in school
That every zit was a tragic flaw
That her muffin-top was the subject of gossip

She had never been kissed (not even at summer camp)
Mirrors served as evidence, judge, and jury:
She was a blight, a sight unworthy of the world
But she had no real friend to share the verdict with

The school was abuzz Monday morning
Why did Megan hang herself Saturday night?
