COURAGE

SURVIVOR NOT STATISTIC!

Submitted by Tara Ryan

After enduring three years of abuse, and seeing it turn to my children I could not take it any more. Strength is more than the measure of muscle. Strength is the courage you muster to do even the things that seem impossible. That year there were 22,000 reported cases of abuse against children in my state. Taking my children from statistics to survivors was the greatest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Not being afraid to speak out against domestic violence any more empowers me. Jump out on that limb and reach for the greatness you deserve, you’re not just a statistic, you are a human, you are survivor just waiting to break free.
