What would you do if, suddenly, you lost everyone you have ever loved? I would probably be extremely sad, and I would feel that life is bleak for quite a long time. But in the end, one must understand that life is both cruel and beautiful, and one should push to be better, even if the world seems to be intolerant and insensitive.
This is the heartbreaking but wonderful story of survival and hope, just in time for the holidays.
This is Safyre Harris, a sweet, beautiful innocent child who had an unexpected disaster when she was 5. Safyre was living with her sister Layah, her brother Michael, and her half-brother Donovan, and everything was fine and happy. They were all under the love and security of their father David.
However, an arsonist burned down their home. Everyone died except for poor Safyre. Thus, in just one moment, Safyre lost her father, her brothers, and her sister. Family lost because of an evil person.
Safyre survived because of her father. When the firefighters found Safyre's father who was burnt and dead, they were surprised to see the little girl, still alive because the father tried to protect her from the fire.
75% of Safyre's small body was burned, and she had to go undergo several medical operations. Actually, she's already had about 50, at such a young age. Now, her aunt takes care of her.
Safyre lost her right hand to the fire, and in March this year, she had her left foot removed. Even now, she's facing problems with her mouth, and an operation next January should hopefully fix that.
Despite the tragedy, Safyre's neighbors and friends fully support. Her friends even treat her just like another normal child, joking and playing with her.
Even with the tragedy, Safyre has high hopes because she really loves Christmas, and all she really wants is to receive Christmas cards so she can place them on her beautiful little card tree. See, her card tree can fit 100 cards, but her aunt said that they will only probably receive 10.
Safyre's aunt then decided to ask on Facebook for Christmas cards. Not only did Safyre get more Christmas cards than she could ever need (boxes and boxes of them), Safyre also received donations for her future medical bills.
