Jessica Watson a true Aussie hero ... tell your daughters about her ...


Her name was written across the clear blue sky ... 
thousands waited around Sydney foreshores ...
... to welcome home ... 
a courageous sixteen year old ...
who'd sailed solo, round the world ...
for 210 days ... 
... glistening Sydney Harbour was packed full of excitement ...
pink was the colour of the day ...

Forget Paris, Kendra, Mylie and their way too much media attention ...

This is the face of hope,
the face all girls ...
 no matter their age ...
should aspire to!

Three resounding cheers for Jessica Watson ...
tell your daughters the Jessica Watson story ...
she's the ultimate role model.
