M.B. Victoria spreads some light on Human Trafficking through this piece of her

When you’re tired of hearing 
that “it’s a pity you had to go through it,”
“no one should ever experience that,”
and “no wonder you’re all bottled up”
I am here to remind you 
that yes, this is all true, but also that
you hold the strength of a thousand warriors,
the heart of all the saints,
and the will to survive of a bird
about to take flight from its nest.
I am here to apologize
for the world that can be so cruel,
for some people who are built up from death,
and for all the terrors you have felt.
I am here to tell you
that the Earth does house beauty,
that there are kind and gentle people,
and that you must allow yourself
to seek hope and freedom
because I promise you, it exists.
Finally, I am here to thank you
for being so filled with life
because you are proof that out of extreme darkness
can emerge an incredibly bright light.

  1. Wow! These are words that every survivor needs to hear. Magnificent, wise, compassionate and empowering. I especially love “you hold the strength of a thousand warriors.” Wonderful! I love your photo too.

    What a wonderful positive write and yes, the world is full of kind and gentle people – if only we had a louder voice…

    In light of the present USA Gymnastics scandal, these words were never truer. Seeing those young women find their power has been an inspiring experience. Beautiful write!
