These men slit the screen to my bedroom window, jimmied the window open and climbed through where they were waiting for me when I got home from a date. At knifepoint, they proceeded to hold me prisoner raping, abusing and taunting me for several hours.You may have seen this story featured on America’s Most Wanted, as these men were wanted for a series of rapes in Southern Nashville between 1997 and 1998. I was their last victim. You may have also seen Ruben Hernandez Martinez’ mug shot right next to Osama bin Laden’s on the FBI’s website, where he was listed as one of the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted Fugitives.I am writing this book to share with you the cavernous ability to extend mercy to even the most vile and loathsome behaviors against another human being.

I invite you to see how it is possible to bring healing into one’s life when the looming question may exist, “Can my healing ever be possible?” My friends, I am here to tell you it surely is.As of the date of this writing, I am virtually in an accepting state of mind. In October, 1998, I made a decision to extend forgiveness to my assailants. Forgiveness so that I may heal. I am forging ahead every day in the direction of clemency.

But one doesn’t wake up one day and simply realize they are “a forgiving one.” The journey to a merciful place is a process but one that is possible, and even enjoyable, as you watch yourself evolve into a someone who is no longer paralyzed in life. You can take the graceful steps along the beautiful and colorful passage into where your life is meant to travel.I recall a poster in my son’s pediatrician’s office.

It was a picture of a rosebush with the phrase “Thorns Have Roses” written under the photo. I took that phrase with me when I began to incorporate positive thinking into my life. I will be referring to my thorns sporadically throughout the book.I invite you now to read in detail my personal experiences acknowledging my thorns and how embracing them forever changed me. You will read about challenging passages with rape, fear, paranoia, acting “as if,” acceptance, forgiveness, letting go, and an ultimate peace which now cloaks me.I believe that after reading this book, you will be able to see how truly loved you are.

You will see that you’re safe and you can trust that. You can trust yourself and your surroundings again. You may begin to notice dramatic results in your ability to let go of those dark thoughts clouding your relationships. Then, when you’re not looking, your life will have shifted into peace, love and contentment. Your personal views of anyone who has hurt you - no matter how deeply – no matter how secret – can change.

A new sense of who you truly are from a spiritual perspective can be born as if you’d never, ever been hurt before.This Godly gift has become one that I wish to share with the rest of the world. Some say, “You will never be the same. You will never be 100%.” I concur you may not be the same! But you can be so much more!

Just believe!Remember who you are. These traumatic events will never define you. You can be whole again if you want to continue quality living. It takes diligence, but you had the courage to survive- you have the courage to live.
