What a powerful song and a beautiful message of forgiveness. Most of us can't imagine being able to forgive such a heinous crime, but we love that she is able to use her art to become stronger and to help heal herself from the pain of this childhood abuse.

Hopefully this song and video will help other survivors to know they are not alone and that they, too, whether they find a way to forgive or not, can feel empowered once again.
