Hello Alecia Beth Moore ,
I need to write to you and hope that you will read my letter on here.
I need to say Thank You. Over the course of your career I have followed you, admittedly, not just because of your singing capabilities. It is the words and heart that you put into your music, that has kept me coming back. I have a long story to tell to anyone that would listen, but sometimes I don't have the words. Over the years you have given me those words that I seem to find devastatingly hard to come by. You have offered me hope and guidance, that I was not fortunate enough to have been given, in the form of parents. Yes, I am an orphan that has made my way in this world on my own.
There were times when I went looking into my past and where I came from, only to find support in your words from Just Like Pill. What I know now is that I came from a family of 16 children. 4 siblings and myself, were the only survivors from a terrible case of child abuse. "Don't Let Me Get Me"... became my words to live by. I have tortured myself over the years because I did survive. I have faced a few demons that didn't want to give in easily and still try to haunt me. Your song "f***in' perfect"... well I almost feel as if you wrote it for me, and I have to be honest with you. As hard as it is for me to admit, it saved my life. I needed you to know that, because I know how important it is to feel that you have been heard. I not only heard your pain and suffering, you said all the words I needed to hear as I faced my child abuse, childhood molestation, and later rape.
Please do not feel that this is me asking for sympathy, I just wanted to say thank you and I pray that this message finds you.
