I ran across this picture on Instagram and I was just blown away! First of all, I remember a time when modeling was extremely rigid, often brutal in the way it defined beauty. Second, I was overwhelmed at the prospect of our society's evolution. We are slowly embracing the differences that make us unique.
Our ability to see each other as individuals remains a work in progress, but we are getting there. I didn't read all of the comments posted with the picture because I know that there are many negative people whose sole purpose is to dissent every chance they get; but I was completely in awe of what this picture represents for so many people, particularly those who do not fit into the "molds" or "standards" or "norms" in our society.
Kuddos to those who embrace differences! Let's keep redefining our "normal."
