Lisa Lisa

Lisa was dealt a tragedy in her life. Instead of dropping her head and feeling sorry for herself, she fought. She fought the system, she fought to find the person who was responsible, long after the system gave up. It was a long fight, filled with doubts, with push-back and with the understanding that victory, if ever attained, would not taste sweet.

She persevered and won. A real victory. A victory that was just. A victory that might make a difference in others' lives.

Why did she spend so much time and energy? Because it was the right thing to do. Because she felt there was nothing more important to do in her life. Like many heroes, she is understated about her victory.

She fought to do the right thing because it was the right thing to do. Because of this, she will inspire others, including me, to do the same. In tragedy, she found a purpose and a meaning.
