The Strongest Person I Know

The strongest person I know is a small woman who comes up to my chin.  Strange, right?

But her strength has been proven over and over again through experiences that have broken others.  Just go through the list that she has shared publicly in the past year.

-She comes from divorced parents

-1/3 Cherokee, but pale as a sheet in Louisiana, she has had guns pointed at her for being white in the wrong neighborhoods.

-She was raped at sixteen

-As a result, she has been diagnosed with PTSD

-She moved to Ohio, taking only what she could pack as carry-on.

-She has been stalked, harassed, and is currently pressing charges against someone who attempted to assualt her.

-She is a freelance designer who is on foodstamps, when Job and Family isn’t making errors on her case (being on stamps myself, let me tell you, this happens all the time)

-She is a recent college grad whose degree may be held because of problems with financial aid.\

-She is a single mother

Not only has she survived all of this and more, she has thrived.

Now, she faces an overwhelming amount of problems.  Normally, she just discounts her commissions to obtain more paid work, but that isn’t going to cut it this time.
