A scar is never ugly


"I ask you right here please to agree with me that a scar is never ugly. That is what the scar makers want us to think. But you and I, we must make an agreement to defy them. We must see all scars as beauty. Okay? This will be our secret. Because take it from me, a scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, I survived."

  4. Oh yes, all the scars -- the ones we see, the ones we don't -- all things of beauty. We have survived.

  7. Battle scares (of all kinds) are definitely part of life. I choose to believe they build character. The experience is often life changing. Susan
