Strong messages about faith, courage, education, refusing to give up, having a deep love of family and home, and standing up for what you believe.


Whatever happened to this innocent little girl was absolutely horrible and wrong but now she and her life is being used by media locally and internationally. The greatest Propaganda of our time.
