I am glad to hear Erika is recovering. Nice to hear good news about the victims of this horror. But I still can't think of this subject without getting upset. I am afraid justice will be denied and the perpetrator will get away with it. May God comfort the victims when this happens.

I believe because of Amanda North's heroic act and compassion, a lovely young lady is alive.
And now Erika Brannock is here to show us her courage and strength.
It is obvious she will move forward and will be an example to all of us. I applaud her parents for raising such a remarkable daughter.

Blessings to Amanda and Erika.
