This poem by Katie Makkai -- the part at the end -- brought tears to my eyes. I've tried to teach my daughters something like this. I don't think I've succeeded too well; the culture is too strong, and probably not just my message but I personally have been deeply subverted by it. But I hope they know -- at least sometimes -- that this is true.
