Hi there. It's me Vanessa, a bit worse for my experiences but still with my spirit and my heart intact.  To be brutally frank, what happened to me is nothing compared to what happens every day to many people. Misery exists the world over and unless you experience some of the pains and tribulations that befall upon others, you are likely to treat the matter cold-heartedly and objectively, instead of with  human concern and sympathy.  

I hope our honesty here and my courage - despite the humilliation it may cause me in some peoples eyes - helps to inspire you to get help if you need it... or help those who need help. We all need support and a friend sometimes! 

A few folks have written in to request help from us on many issues... and of course - we do try to help. The critical point though is that we must all try to help each other. Many of us have grown cynical and lost our way in understanding that humankind's greatest asset is the ability to pull our entire species onto a path of improvement through our mutual spirit and common goal to survive and prosper.  

Of all the sights and sounds you will ever see, there is nothing more heart-wrenching nor chilling than the distinctive scream or vision of a single person lost in their fears and misery without someone  in the world to hold them and love them in their darkest terror.  

I live in London. If anyone else out there needs help now, I have looked up some contact points and numbers and printed them over on the right there.  

Please, never give up. Whatever the problem - be certain that I am here praying for you and wishing you the strength and courage to win through your crisis. 

You can do it. I know you can! 

If  I can say anything now to help you get through this day or this night - it will be this: - 

Whatever you are going through now, let it become your driving force to make things right for others.  Your anguish, your despair, your pain at injustice and the ignorance of others (or yourself) will become a ladder you will climb. When you reach it's top - as you will - cast no thought of revenge - but empower yourself to aid others from your hard-learnt experience and self-won strength. 

Life is not about 'easy' - it is about overcoming all issues and problems and keeping your love and spirit intact as you do so. Should you doubt my words - know that wherever you go... I have been there! 

I am here - flesh and blood and humble. Weak in body from my own struggle in life - but I never forget where I have been - nor will I ever take life for granted again. It is the ultimate experience and one so full of possibilities once you are prepared to live it!
