Sending The Wrong Message in Stilettos

With the devastating news of extreme weather hitting our world, I am brought back to an image that I cannot shake; one of Melania Trump off to visit Texas, post Hurricane Harvey, wearing stiletto heals. Clothes tell stories, give messages, and share emotion. The message in that image (which of course would be widely-seen around the globe) is … I am above you. I am not one of you. It is the farthest thing from someone who should be bringing the message of love, support, and healing to those who need it desperately. Trump changed her shoes later in the day but it didn’t matter – we had already seen it.
