Pretty Dresses

Our national friend, Mesley, has six children.  One of them, his daughter Stephany, wrote this poem…
I was surprised when I read this.  Sometimes the national girls have pretty clothes, sometimes they’re plain and worn and sometimes they have gaping holes and tears.  I knew having money to buy clothes was an issue here but I didn’t realize that girls here thought of clothes as anything but functional.  What a sweet poem.  I wish I could give all the little girls pretty dresses.
