Cleveland Kidnapping Case: Victims Speak Out For The First Time To Thank Their Supporters! Watch HERE!

| Filed under: Media MinuteInspiration

Cleveland kidnapping victims Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight have avoided the media since they were freed after 10 years of being held in captivity.

But despite their pleas for their privacy, the girls decided to break their silence to say thanks to all of their supporters!

The three ladies faced unspeakable conditions for the past decade, but instead of being bitter they seemed optimistic about their futures.

32-year-old victim Michelle said:

"I may have been through hell and back, but I am strong enough to walk through hell with a smile on my face, and with my head held high, and my feet firmly on the ground. Walking hand in hand with my best friend, I will not let the situation define who I am. I will define the situation. I don’t want to be consumed by hatred."

We can't even begin to say how inspirational it is to see how these women managed to survive such a horrible ordeal and come out with such a positive outlook on life!

We're so glad to see that they are doing well and hope they can continue to live normal, healthy lives!

Ch-ch-check out the entire thank you video (above)!

    Lose the brow piercing, dear. And Im going to sound like a total asshole but…are they borderline retarded? They seem out of it. Odd.

  4. 4

    and why does brow piercing girl have to read off of paper how she feel/thanking people? Is it that difficult to say thank you on the cuff?
