Madelyn’s story was everywhere. Even on tonight’s local 41 news. While she was waiting to be called, people who passed her commented on how ridiculous the incident had become and complimented her on the way she looked in her bikini.
She later felt that it was time for another post, this time a thank-you one. She recognized how much love was sent her way and how much appreciation and gratitude people were feeling, so she had to send some in return.
It's Facebook Time
Madelyn posted her story on Facebook and within no time it became viral. Her post reached so many people who showed her great support and encouragement. Her followers reacted against the waterpark and demanded that action is taken.
Almost every person who came across Madelyn's post had a comment to share and criticized the park severely. There were very few who wrote that the park had a policy that had to be respected, but then again, they were only a few.
The Truth Came Out
Madelyn was overwhelmed. Not only was she showing the park's authorities in a bad light, but she also managed to reach other women who were in her situation too. Women who might have been embarrassed in public for any reason, but most of all, women who felt like her.
Women who have self-esteem issues, being heavy or not, or women who feel uncomfortable with wearing bathing suits out in public for any reason they had. She felt there was a purpose for what had happened.
Over the Ocean and Across the Sea
Madelyn's story became international. People from all over the world reached out to her and shared their support. 500 letters from Brazil were sent, together with a few more hundreds from China, Greece, and Hong Kong.
Things were about to change. Not only within Madelyn's local community, but they were about to change worldwide. Humanity was going to change, and it was going to change for good.
A Moment of Gratitude
Madelyn carried on by posting how she is grateful for those who express pride over shame, no matter what shape one's body is and no matter how tall or small they might be.
She carried on by saying that we have beautiful bodies in many shapes and sizes and she was overwhelmed and comprehended that she was not alone.
