Full of Life

Lovers of peace

Owners of Destiny

World Beauty

Earnest Repair

Respects the Dead

Softens Hearts

As Valentine’s Day approaches, I remember all the ones who can never dream again. The one whose lives were taken too soon. The ones that will never embrace another this side of Heaven.

Today, I remember and honor the victims of crimes they did not commit — the homicides unsolved, the missing persons that will never return home, those atrocities born against children that remain in them like a bullet lodged in their spine.

I pray blessings. I pray release. I pray God’s healing.

Incest. Murder. Rape. Then, I turned four. This is my story.
