My Unabridged Farewell

My Unabridged Farewell

Here are my complete thoughts. Those who attended this weekend's Miss Virginia USA pageant may have seen a farewell letter. That letter was edited to protect the guilty, as I was told my original letter would not be printed.  Here is the original letter. I am grateful for my year, but also strive to provide an honest reflection.  

Crossing the Line

It’s all the talk, and rightfully so:  Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas dove across the finish line to secure the Olympic gold medal in the women’s 400-meter finals. Of course, I have an opinion.

 It’s the pageant/modeling equivalent of “accidentally” stepping on the girl’s train in front of you during the flood walk.  While it won’t necessarily disqualify you from competition, I’d say it’s frowned upon.
