Don't Forget

'Whatever comes,' she said, 'cannot alter one thing. If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of  a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.' 
-Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess.

Since infancy I have loved the story of Sara Crew in "A little Princess." I never forgot her courage or determination. The lessons I learned from the story have stayed with me into adulthood.

If I could get one message through to the little girls I work with, or any girl for that matter, it is how much they are worth. It matters not where you come from or your circumstances all girls are princesses.
