A Collection of Beautiful Words

“Girls are raised in a society where flattering clothing means clothing that makes you look skinnier. Where fat is an insult more often than a noun and not just a physical description but a reflection of personality. Where “you look healthy” is what you say when a girl gains weight, but “you look good” is what you say when a girl loses weight. Girls are raised in a society that teaches them it is their own responsibility to be as small as possible because they do not deserve to take up space.”

The earth supplies us with ALL our needs; oxygen, shelter, protection from outside forces, food. We continue to destroy her and then we give her ONE day of praise out of 365? While we should all worship our mother every day of the year, I hope everyone has a wonderful Earth Day and treats mama right
