Dear Victor, 
I call you “victor” because you are not a “victim.” You are strong. You are brave. You are a survivor because you are here, right now, reading this. What you’ve been through is not easy by any means, but look at you! You’re here battling your own demons. You’re taking risks & making it through everyday, one step at a time, while you are at war. You are a warrior, a soldier, and not only have you survived YOU HAVE STRIVED. You are an example for people who feel like they can’t live another day because of what has been done to them. You are a symbol of hope for the hopeless. You are NOT alone, the one to take the blame, or “weak.” You are every essence of a victor! You are a hero, (especially to me). Thank you. Stay strong. Love,
