I remember my childhood as a horrible time. My mother says that nothing so horrible ever happened to me as the things that I remember.
I never said I wanted a 'happy' life but an interesting one. From separation and loss, I have learned a lot. I have become strong and resilient, as is the case of almost every human being exposed to life and to the world. We don't even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward.
Everybody has losses - it's unavoidable in life. Sharing our pain is very healing.
Women have always been courageous... They are always fearless when protecting their children and in the last century they have been fearless in the fight for their rights.
