you are beautiful.

photo brought to you by acnatta at flickr.
no, for real. you are. beautiful.
thanks to thoughtful birmingham graffiti artists we are all reminded. 
there are a series of two paintings with this message in the magic city. 
the first one was revealed in october on highland avenue bridge {shown above}. 
while the second one is more recent and is located across from railroad park downtown.
there is speculation that this series is a part of Operation Beautiful movement or
regardless, i like it.
in fact, i love it. 
after all, 8 million americans have eating disorders.
and there are no accurate or countable statistics for how many people do not value themselves.
i think it's time we see the beauty. 
for more information on this "story" go to colorlines.
where there is love, there is art.
