She had spent all of her life trying to keep the peace for others. Now aged and battle worn, she knew she must address her own private war. The past unceasingly haunted her with its unresolved memories.
With winds of her own changes, she erased figurative lines in the sand. Walking away with her head held high, she finally won her own self-respect.
