I would like to meet her in person, or write her a letter and thank her for being so brave. She is what people should strive to be in the face of adversity. If I can call up even a fraction of her courage, I can make it through anything.
I think that I'm going to try harder in school now. Melba's story gives me faith that everyone has courage in their hearts if they need it. I'm going to try and find mine and make use of it! Three cheers for inspirational people!
