This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 53.jpg53 (23 October 2015)
A statement of what it is to be a survivor and not to have given up on the idea of resistance. We cannot deny change, but we can choose how we react, and by our actions set an example to others.

(Joint 1st place in Lilburn Composition Competion 2015)
