She does not fear the battle.  Her battle started long ago.  She knows her worth and will not cower.  She will not compromise for their whims.

She sees tomorrow for her daughter and her sister.  If she must go alone, it is for tomorrow’s legacy.

Finally, she will stand tall in the face of those that wish to cast her to the shadows; those that do not want her truth to be heard.

Tomorrow brings hope; hope for a time when she can lay down her sword and her sisters will go free.
