So my sweet 12 year old comes home from school one day last week and said a classmate had called her a "honky". She said she hadn't said or done anything to cause this young man to say this to her and she didn't respond to his name-calling, but simply turned and walked away. She decided to write this poem in response and I was moved to tears by it. I asked if she was ok with me sharing it and she said "that's fine".
Family and friends please share this with everyone you can. Yes I'm a proud mom, but this is so deep and so true I believe it needs to be read by the world.
