A True Story: Elena Against all Odds

Preface

Elena’s story takes place in Latin America. The vagueness of this statement is intentional, for South American countries share an unfortunate culture of violence, injustice and corruption, and the characters I will mention have crossed many borders themselves. Hers is one of a million tales about endurance and one that, against all odds, ended up in victory. Although Elena confessed that even though she now knows exactly how strong she is, she could never fight a similar battle again. For those that have to, I decided to write one this down.
