Maurice Broaddus: On True Beauty

Maurice wrote a lovely post a couple of weeks ago in his Friday Night Date Place series called True Beauty. And there’s a great picture in there of us from Once Upon a Time at World Horror Convention.

“Beauty sometimes needs to be drawn out. Better stated, sometimes beauty doesn’t recognize its own preciousness.” –M. Broaddus

Yeah, I got a little weepy.

Of course, last week, Maurice topped it with the post where he breaks down and analyzes a love letter sent by his son to a girl in his class.
His son is seven.

The letter reads:
Dear Maurila,
Will you date me? You are very cute. I like how you wear your hair. I love you. Do you like to play with me? Do you love me?

I love him already.
Would that boys five times his age could be so honest and forthright.
