If you have a young daughter...

...granddaughter, niece, cousin, Goddaughter, sister ...
or question your own self-esteem ...



... and this ad campaign isn't run on public television ... it should be.



In honor of Sgt. Matthew Blaskowski



Jenn, at Serving the Queens has lost a family member in Iraq, Sgt. Matthew Blaskowski. She has posted photos of people lining the street to thank and honor him. She asks that you stop by and post a thought and she will present it to his parents, Terry and Cheryl Blaskowski. The very least we can do is offer comfort and support. Their son gave his life for us, for this country. This is not a place to post your political views on the war.

That was powerful. I think we should campaign for that campaign to be run here too.

Terri said...

excellent video & post. I honestly never thought to "talk" about specific issues that might confront her. I've always stressed the beauty inside line though. Will have to delve into this more thoroughly as she gets older. Thanks!

Geez. No wonder girls have self-esteem issues. I have these discussions with hubby all the time about raising our girls with confidence and self worth.
I'm sending him this video, wow.

Nancy, love the video, they really should have that on TV (for our girls sakes!) I am going to include it on my blog, too!

I LOVE that video - thanks!

And on it for Jenn.

I worry about the self esteem issue and my daughter all the time. She's 10. Media hasn't seemed to affect her as much as a few mean girl situations.

I have to tell my son that all those pictures of females he sees are not a representation of what is real. I don't want him going out in the world thinking all girls are meant to look like what is in a magazine...

What a sick place this world can be sometimes.

a mean girl can do soooo much more harm than the media. Why is that? Why do girls have to be so mean to other girls? I just don't get it.

my heart goes out to the families who've lost loved ones in Iraq...so senseless.

I have seen that video clip before. I have three girls and I worry about what is to come for them all the time. Tough to hear about the familiy and their loss. I can't even imagine losing a child no matter how old they are.
