If my mother had stayed I would have seen women as weak and I would have a completely different view of the world. I am alive today to share my story because of the strength of my mother. She sacrificed herself for the safety of her children. Although I saw some horrific things happen as I grew I know today that I was saved that day to do the work I now do.
Sometimes it was those choices: the ones that no one understood, the choices that we got ridiculed for, the choices of BRAVERY that will define our lives.
