I wanna grow up. I want to meet a nice boy. Maybe he will date me, not rape me. I wanna leave this island, go to college and learn how to use the computer, balance a checkbook, play the piano, paint huge portraits, meet a nice boy, go to the opera, see Europe and visit the United States. I wanna wear a pretty dress. My body is mine, it is not yours to use and abuse. I am beautiful, inside and out. I wanna grow up. ~ written by Deb~ today as I am making my "dress " project (click here to learn more) I am mindful of those beautiful faces in Isla Mujeres when I lived there. All I can do is what I can do, can you?

Why do the children not show their teeth?
They have a hauntingly beautiful but 'much too wise for their years' quality about them.
what amazing photographs and compelling words!
and thanks for dropping by my blog earlier too!
hope you have a happy weekend,
such beauty in these girls...and in your loving efforts to help them...
I hear them...and you.
Deb, your post is much more powerful with your written words in combination with those AMAZING pics! Jeff enjoys taking people's photographs.. especially in black & white, I'll def be sharing this experience with him. !
YOU ROCK MY WORLD over and over.. I hope this ride never ends!!!
AND I hope our art "movement" helps bring some light to these atrocities.. EVERY kid deserves the right to grow up!
