shley Brown's story ("After the call," July 29, Page A-1) left me believing that miracles really do happen. This girl has also left me with a feeling that she is nothing less than an angel.
I remember reading about Ashley months back ("A really good heart," Dec. 10, Page I-1) and recalled one thing — she was a very determined person. I remember reading that there were times that some students at her school would make fun of her. I couldn't believe people could be so heartless.
But my mind changed. She's said she didn't let it bother her; she just stayed focused on school and getting better. Though we don't know each other, I'll be praying for Ashley from this day forward — that she stays strong, stays determined, stays healthy and never gives up on her dreams.
