"She grew up on the side of the road
where the church bells ring,
and strong love grows.
She grew up good;
she grew up slow,
like American honey."
These words from Lady Antebellum's song, "American Honey" keep playing through my head as I think of the recent video of the little girls dancing to Beyonce's "Single Ladies". It breaks my heart - Beyonce had an incredible video with a great dance, but these precious little girls add provactive moves with lingerie. Oh slow down, dear hearts.
Or Miley Cyrus' new video to "Can't Be Changed" - it is creative, but oh sweet Miley, you are so young, don't sexualize yourself, take your time honey. You are a treasure. It breaks my heart! Where is the brave man and nurturing woman that are intended to stand between a young heart and the world. Where are these girls' protectors?
Moms and Dads, don't wait until it is too late, stand in for them now. Lay yourself on the ground between them and the enemy. Do not give in or give up, be brave, be bold.
