Gratitude for another week with 11-year-old survivors.

You are flawless.
You are strong and courageous.
You are easily startled and perfectly bold.
You have fought the hardest battles.
You have stared your opponents in the face.

You lost all your hair.
You were scared to death.
You were weak but did not wither.

You have climbed walls.
You have flown over lakes.
You have walked tightropes between treetops.

You have cried until your cheeks burned.
You've laughed until your sides hurt.

You aren't bitter.
You aren't angry.
You're grateful.
You're joyful.
You're radiant.

You welcome the day's adventures.

I am a better person just for knowing you.
