These ladies will need lots of prayers and support. It is good to see they are doing well.
Check it out:

Three women who were held in a Cleveland home for a decade broke their silence Tuesday, issuing a YouTube video thanking the public for their encouragement and financial support.

Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight said that the support of their families, friends, and the public is helping them rebuild their lives after what Berry called “this ordeal” and what Knight called “hell.”

“I may have been through hell and back, but I am strong enough to walk through hell with a smile on my face and my head held high,” Knight said. “I will not let the situation define who I am. I will define the situation. I don’t want to be consumed by hatred.”

DeJesus’ parents joined their daughter on camera to thank the public for donations to a fund set up to support the women and urged families of missing people to reach out to their neighbors for assistance.
