Message in a bottle: Note written by Detroit girls surfaces a century later

School: “Express what you really are, be yourself and don’t let anyone else hold you down.”

School: ” No make-up, no nail varnish, no hair dye, all your hair has to be natural, no trainers, no boots, no short hairstyles, no long hairstlyes, no dip-dye, no own clothes, no coloured bobbles, no coloured coats, you MUST wear uniforms that are really boring and just make you feel un-comfortable and finally no nice bags allowed.”

Dear Teenagers,

Yes. This is the idea.

Because You aren’t your clothes.
You aren’t your face.
You aren’t haircut.
You aren’t your fashion style.
You aren’t your money.
You aren’t your friends.
You aren’t your extracurricular activities.
You aren’t your talent.

Because when you take all of that bullshit away, who are you really?

Because when you strip people down to nothing, what is left is their character.  What is left is their actions.

Do you wear who you want to be to school every day?

My apologies for be absent for so long. A lot of stuff has happened. Inspiration struck today, so there ya go.
