It breaks my heart that this has become your life, Aisha. I wish I could take it away from you. I wish that we could all wake up from this nightmare that has become so routine. I certainty will not sit here and say a lot of fluffy, meaningless antidotes. We are in for the fight of our lives. Your life has meaning every moment of every day. I am so lucky to have you as my daughter. You are a gift, you are a blessing to me and anyone that is lucky enough to know you. I am here for you every step of the way. I want you to know how very much I love and admire you. You are a brave, strong woman and I often wish I were half the woman that you have become. You are a great mother and I truly respect you. We can do this, you can do this. Stay strong, my love.
