Beauty is within us all

LETTER

Re: Beauty, June 26 I Am Youth article.

Beautiful you! This very perceptive and eloquently written article made me feel very sad. We are stealing our little children’s passage through childhood into their adulthood.

I have recently watched young performers dressed up and crooning like the stars. Why not be singing all the carefree songs of childhood?

Kate, you have expressed very brave ideas. We must all do what we can to have strength to recognise the beauty that is in each and every one of us.

The pressures are huge out there for us all strive to fit an image, be like this one and that one, and if we don’t then we feel a failure.

You have expressed all of this so well. Congratulations and may your message be heard loud and clear. Stay strong and go well!
