I love our girls. The ones who wave their hands in the air- squealing "Me! Me! I know the answer!" I love the quiet ones, and the loud ones. I love the ones who want so much to be grown. I beg you all not to label them 'fast' and withdraw your protection from them. Outside our protection, there are hungry wolves looking to feed on their bodies and souls, who are focused on that booty in those jeans, not the thoughts and feelings in their heads.
I love the ones who pass notes in class, and those who take notes in class. I love the ones perfecting their dance moves, their poses for their facebook photos, and the ones who are daydreaming of sports glory. I love them all, and their dreams of the women they long to be.
