Breaking The Silence: The Three Ohio Kidnap Victims Speak Out

These women are amazing.

Victims Ohio Kidnap Case

From the Huffington Post: Stylish and smiling, three women allegedly held captive in a Cleveland home for a decade offered thanks on YouTube for emotional and financial backing they’ve received since going “through hell and back.”

From Amanda Berry, 27: “I want everyone to know how happy I am to be home, with my family, my friends,” she said.

“I would say `thank you’ for the support,” said a soft-spoken Gina DeJesus, 23, in response to prompting from a narrator.

And from Michelle Knight, 32, who wasn’t a familiar face on a milk carton around town like the other two, came a sometimes halting yet defiant reading of a statement.

“I may have been through hell and back, but I am strong enough to walk through hell with a smile on my face and with my head held high,” she said. “I will not let the situation define who I am. I will define the situation. I don’t want to be consumed by hatred.”

Erin here: I’m going to repeat that: “I will not let the situation define who I am. I will define the situation. I don’t want to be consumed by hatred.”  I hope more women who’ve been impacted by sexual and physical violence will step forward and say these words.  Well done, you amazing women!
