Inspiration to continue on

“The moment the slave resolves that he will no longer be a slave, his fetters fall. He frees himself and shows the way to others. Freedom and slavery are mental states” -Mahatma Gandhi 

After reading this quote and post by Alexandria on her blog, I couldn't help feel a connection with her and new found strength to continue on. Everyday is another battle to muster up the strength to continue on hoping.

The biggest satisfaction I can ever get from taking the time to post a blog and sharing my story is to be an inspiration to someone who takes the time to read. I agree, we all have a story to share and while the reality of those stories may be painful and hard to share, it empowers us to grow as individuals. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog and for spreading the word. I am convinced that one day in the very near future we will be celebrating that our DREAM has came true...for now, we can just continue the fight and making our voice heard.

P.S.
I am actually a journalism major as well so we have more than one thing in common!!!
