Every Day

Oscar my friend,

Every day I stand with you. Whatever they say, or whatever they do to you, I will continue to stand firmly by your side. I wish I could take your hand Oscar, and I wish I could let you know that if you just hold on tight and endure this most terrible period of your life, it will one day pass away. I know this may feel like forever… but it won’t be forever. Absolutely nothing lasts forever.

So hold on tight and never let go. One day you will heal, because you deserve to, and it’s also part of life’s journey, to heal. One day you will also walk free. You deserve to walk free today… but, even if it’s not today, you will walk free one day. I, and many many others as well, will still be standing by your side when that day comes.

With love from Kenya.

Tessa

Unbroken

Oscar, my wife is an avid supporter of yours… and through her I have come to understand your case and I too believe you. Together we support you, and we will continue to no matter what you face.

A few months ago I read a book called ‘Unbroken’. It’s about Louis Zamperini, the prodigious athlete who ran in the Berlin Olympics. Louis was driven to the limits of endurance when he was caught by the Japanese in WW2 and had to endure living in prisoner of war camps. His triumph over tragedy depended on the strength of his will. He went on to live well into his old age and finally carried the torch in the Olympics in his 80’s. This remarkable story reminds both my wife and I of you. We see your dignified manner through all that you’re enduring, and your strong will to survive.

We will be sending you this remarkable story.

Keep going Oscar. You’re an inspiration to so many.

Andrew
