Ricki Lake, blah, blah, blah, Dancing with the Stars, blah, blah, blah, facing fears.

To every child who has suffered the unimaginable but is still willing to stand up and tell their story even though there will always be those who choose not to believe the truth.
To every mother who has been willing to confront the past although it hurts like hell.
To every sister who speaks the truths no one likes to hear, who is an advocate for those who have lost their voice, who encourage and support even though they themselves have suffered as well.
To every coach who has actually taken a stand for what is right, despite the dire consequences.
To every person who makes a choice, every day, to move forward even though they have every justifiable right to simply shut down and withdraw instead.
To all of you I say, from the very bottom of my heart, thank you. You inspire me, because although your fears may be unseen they are mighty and yet you choose to fight them every single day. You are more courageous and resilient than you realize. Thank you for being willing to face your very real fears even though there is no mirror ball trophy to be won in doing so.
