When some women came to us with a story of an underground railroad to help women in need – I recognized one of them as a woman in trouble. Her name was Pearl and I knew or thought I knew she did something bad. But now she was here and I had to know why someone she was with died by violence. I also had to know more about her and what she was doing… and she wasn’t exactly talking. She had trust issues and they went right down to her bones.
