Gracie, with undaunted courage, lives everyday where only our deepest fears takes us—and that is, a world of unrelenting pain.  To spend time with her, though, is to feel a lot of that courage infuse into your own heart.  You can’t help but sense the divine strength which is her daily comfort and consolation.
