To My Daughter:You Are Worthy Of Being Heard!...Kerry Washington

"I just want [daughter Isabelle] to know that she's heard. Really heard, because I feel like that is what we all really want. When I think about any of the missteps in my life that I've made, all of which I'm grateful for, it's because I just so wanted to be truly seen and heard for who I am and was afraid I wasn't or wouldn't be. 

I see you, I hear you, I'm with you as you are."
 --Kerry Washington, Actress
