For those of you having difficulty with hope today, I present a 15-year-old (or so) photo of Taylor Swift as an elementary school pre-swan.
Plain, but sweet and a little girl with a lot of growing up to do.
I suspect this will give some of you reason to believe the best is yet to come. But remember one thing: We love Taylor Swift because of a lot more than the fact that the beautiful swan emerged. The inner beauty has been there all along. It was just in the shadow for a while.
