what that is.Desperate for life to be perfect again,although she realizes it
never really was.Desperate for a better future if she can find a way to escape
her past.I not only watch,I cheer them on, these amazing women.I hope so much
they'll find what they're looking for.But I know not all of them will.Sadly,
that's just not the way life works.Not everyone gets a happy ending.
