Cleveland kidnap victims Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight released a thank you video tonight to the Cleveland community. Each girl delivered a statement in the video. Michelle Knight read a powerful statement from her notes,
“We need to take a leap of faith and know that God is in control. We have been hurt by people, but we need to rely on God as being the judge. God has a plan for all of us.”
What courageous young women!
