Victims and Volunteers

You are stronger than you give yourself credit for
Reignite that fire within

This is not your destiny
Your value is far greater than you have been led to believe

Find yourself, nurture youself
Only you can change the course of your life

The time has come for you to say NO! and GOODBYE! to the negativity and pain wrought by others

You may have been a victim for abuse...don't become a volunteer

YOU ARE A M A Z I N G !!!

Hi Linta,

I am assuming you wrote this poem. You are amazing. This is beautiful and wonderful, all in one.

I am making a copy and giving it to people as appropriate and keeping this poem where I can read it too.

MANY MANY young people could benefit from reading this. It (and you) are so inspiring.

Thank you.

Powerful!

Dear Linette,

Thanks for sharing this beautiful and profound poem with us. It's such a powerful message and reminder that we can choose to be the authors of our lives, the makers of our destiny and that we are stronger than we've been led to believe... I'm going to forward this to a friend who especially needs to hear this right now...
Thanks!!

-Susan
