This is why! This young woman is why human beings still exist. It is people like her, with an innate sense of what is right and what is so horribly wrong in the world around her that she challenges the norms that have become so commonplace that they are overlooked as a given when in fact they are a mere stepping stone into the future.
Her mother must be beyond proud to have raised such a young woman who shuns peer pressure (young and old), social protocol & expectations and acts from the soul of her being.
To have a voice and be allowed to use it to its fullest. Without shame. Without editing. Without correction to expectation over expression. Free to be herself without fear (except the fear foisted upon her by a society that wants it all, to hell with the consequence) of recourse or reprimand.
So, Political Kid, you will, no doubt be a force to be reckoned with and I should know, we were, and probably are still, a lot alike. Never lose your fire & fury. Never quiet your voice for the discomfort it might cause others because it makes them look in the mirror and not like what they see. Never ignore your gut about what feels right and what feels wrong. Stay true to who you are and will be. The end result will be worth it.
