Her soul, like those of all who h ave had a real adventure, has become the rose that brightens the lives of us all. Her thorny path may usher tears to stream down our face. But her resiliency will motivate the disadvantaged to rise from the ashes of mediocrity and fulfull their dreams." - Biship T. D. Jakes, from the forward. -----
