Some will benefit from the trials of the past. Others will have to fight through their history to build a better life.
When asked why she decided to tell her story, she replied, “Because I must. The voices of my lifetime speak to me in my dreams and wake with me each morning. I would be as lost without them now as I was when the events I occurred.
