My little grand daughters react to the push for distorted beauty by obsessing over their looks and clothes or by looking and dressing like bums.When they come to our house we fuss over them. are'nt those bangs lovely. you have such delicate eyes, yes I think this hair-do looks well on you. Here come sit closer to me so I can put my arm around you and see you better. Then Papa plays computer games and mind twizzlers because not only are his girls beautiful they are smart and competent and have the cacity to learn and become anything---the boys already know this somehow. Why we ask do we have to remind the girls over and over? Blessed Mother place your holy hand upon my girls and protect them from harm and lies. Do not abandon them to the power of human beings.

Well said, Mary! Oh, I love how you fuss over them. I have a precious little neice who is also black, but darker skinned. I've heard some relatives make negative remarks on how dark she is, and how she needs to stay out of the sun, so she won't get darker. I made it my business to remind her how beautiful she is...how lovely her smooth brown skin is. These girls need this. Otherwise they grow into women who (like me) need it even more.

God's grace to you, Mary!
