It was magic. Unquestionably.
The timing that is.
The miraculous decision to shave her head at that precise moment. Lobbying her parents with a Powerpoint presentation on the benefits of a hairless head.
A teenaged Bruce Wayne.
A wide-eyed Peter Parker.
Imagine her list: So much cooler. No more shampoo. Money saved. Free-flowing drains.
But what about these?
They’ll listen to the girl without hair.
A modern day Samson in reverse.
And, most urgent:
Please release the magic.
How miraculous that the sheering occurred at the moment it was needed. Mere moments before tragedy struck.
The tragic and magic coexisted on camera for 11 minutes. “I call BS” flowed through tears from the fierce bald-headed girl with an unwavering gaze and ferocious courage.
And the nation listened.
It was magic that the timing was perfect for a hero’s birth.
Then she lead with a devastating “would never” refrain before standing strong, blinking through the pain.
And the excruciating silence.
The courage to be silent.
A hero was needed and she was born with an electric razor and a kind resilient heart. From mind-numbing tragedy she emerged with a spellbinding look. An unwavering heart.
And razor focus.
She’s hope for our future.
