No matter how dark the path can turn, the sun reminds us that it is always there, like in springtime.
I choose the word ESPERANZA because that is how I feel now. God has listened to my cry. He brought me to the House of Peace. The doves represent the peace and tranquility that I experience here. When I feel this way, my life grows like a new tree that lives by the water and my world has color again. E.V.
The House of Peace allowed me to find peace and a community of friends. I have learned to share my story with others and to listen to their stories too. We all share similar previous experiences of feeling mistreated and pressured humiliated and diminished. Many of us have felt lonely and we have even felt despair. We all feel blessed now by sharing our lives with each other. E.V.
