At nine years old, Gilda Marie Stevens experienced a cruel and unexpected event that landed her family on the wrong side of the tracks. A place in her mind where only she suffered and only her dreams were shattered.

Because there she slowly began to learn about her history, her heroes, and what true suffering is really is all about.
