Jack’s Winning Words 9/22/15
“We get so worried about being pretty. Let’s be pretty kind, pretty funny, pretty smart, pretty strong.” (Britt Nicole) The first Beauty Contest in America was after the Civil War, and now there’s a movement to ban such contests…especially of children. People today seem to recognize that prettiness is more than physical beauty. Reread today’s quote. Isn’t it more important to emphasize qualities other than beauty? Take a look in the mirror…! ;-) Jack
