I was having a difficult time finding the right words so I thought a poem would be more appropriate. I this the following poem by Barbara Hope ... gives hope to anyone, all of us, to realize that we all are survivors, on some level.
Barbara Hope, Arts & Entertainment Executive Producer/Director, poet and stained glass designer. Ms. Hope is a survivor arts advocate and activist. She dedicates all her down time to Survivors Art Foundation.
All of Us
by Barbara Hope
Survivors, young and old, warm and cold,
Survivors with life, from birth,
Survivors of strife, from death.
Survivors of pain, from gain,
Survivors from greed, of speed.
Survivors of sex, oh, so complex!
Survivors of camps, of knives, of war,
Survivors, ALL OF US, nevermore.
