Courageous Girls

Brisa & Fatima,

We seem to believe that we control our lives and that if we act and behave righteously, everything will turn out right.  There is some truth to this. But on the other side, we need to acknowledge that there are many things that we cannot control.  If we have a clear idea and plan for the long run, we can establish paths towards our goals, even with tripping over every now and then.   A fundamental element to reach this purpose is to be courageous.

Puerta Abierta was recently summoned to our local child protection agency. They asked that we take two young sisters suffering domestic violence.  These young girls were courageous to leave their home, look for and find shelter in the agency, as they were running great risk by staying in a toxic and violent environment.  Their interest and goal had been to study, widen their opportunities and leave that unhealthy situation.  Circumstances were against them, and yet, they were brave enough to take an unconventional decision and leave.

For  Brisa and Fatima it was a brave decision, for Puerta Abierta has been extraordinary experience  and a blessing. They have their sights in their long term goals, studying, adapting, respecting their new home and family, looking forward to building a new personal history, taking advantage of this new opportunity for them and not looking and turning back.

Puerta Abierta´s family has reaped new benefits, as witnessing their great determination of getting ahead has instilled a new paradigm in the other girls. It has shown us to be firm and to not let them hesitate in their plan and go over of what they think they can.  As their tutors, we will help them, fostering their courage and always pushing them out of their comfort zone.  

We should build values from this experience, encourage their determination and strengthen the vision of them.   We should help them to be conscious they can overcome obstacles no matter how big they are, even if they fail several times. They have to learn to walk on uncomfortable and difficult paths. We should always remind them of the courage they have shown so far. The rest….. is part of life.
