I am overjoyed and filled with hope to see the face and hear the voice of one of my heroines and inspirations over the last 10 years again. Many of you are probably aware that TLC has a new show called “Escaping the Prophet” about the FLDS, where Flora Jessop and Brandon Jeffs are profiled doing what they do best. Helping FLDS captives escape to freedom. Flora has been a fierce warrior against the FLDS abuses (along with many others) for so many years. It brings tears to my eyes to be able to watch this. Thank you Flora for your example to me. Thank you for your strength, for your encouragement, for your words of truth. Thank you for working tirelessly for so many years to expose this, even when people didn’t believe you. I have wanted to be like you “when I grow up” since I met you! And I know that I will be. The world is getting ready to do something REAL to stop all kinds of abuses, and its because of people like you, Flora, who never quit and never give up. No matter what you keep speaking the truth and helping as many as you can. I don’t know if you will ever realize the impact you have had on me over the last ten years, and how you have helped me realize that I too can help free the captives. Flora, you are AMAZING!!! And I am soooo happy that you and Ruby are finally together again. Victory!!!

To the children born to darkness

To the slaves waiting to be set free

To the ones holding on for dear life

Wondering if there’s hope anywhere at all

To the ones who’ve seen the lies

Since the days you were so small

They smile as they hurt

They tell you not to cry or you’ll be next

The hypocrisy, they put your Creator into your pain

They turn your tormentors into your saviors

Yet you still see the truth

Their world is lies, and you’ve always known

Listen to me, Listen, Child of Truth,

I thought there was no hope for me too

But you are not a slave, I am not a slave

And we are right, the world we were born into

is LIES, all LIES

And you are beautiful

And smart

And amazing

And your Creator smiles

At your questions

The questions that bring you punishment now

Will bring you freedom, Child of Truth

Don’t give up,

Don’t Die!

I am waiting for you!

There are many of us

Though we feel so alone

We will expose all their secrets

And freedom will be ours

Creator gave us a gift

To see through their lies

To shine light on their secrets

And bring freedom to the slaves

The generations coming after us,

Waiting for us, Waiting for Hope

Waiting for a hand to reach out to them

We have to survive this, Child of Truth

It hurts so bad we want to die, but we won’t

We won’t because Creator gave us a mission

We are going to free the slaves

Slaves, like we once were

We will be free one day, free for good

And we will bring hope to the others

I need you

They need you

Please don’t die

Stay with me

We will expose this together
