A Christmas Message For Schapelle

As Schapelle faces up to her SEVENTH Christmas suffering in a squalid Indonesian prison cell, we are creating something to try to lift her spirits at least a little.

Please send a message to her, but please don't mention Christmas itself. Like her birthday, she tries not to think about it, because it reminds her of her passing life.

A week before Christmas we will send all the comments to Mercedes, to print and take to Schapelle.



Please think of her in the coming weeks, and send your thoughts to her below.

Hang in there Schapelle, however impossible it seems. There are more of us with you than you can possibly realize, and our hearts reach out across the waters to you. We will always be by your side.

Fiona Kitchen said...

Schapelle, I am from the UK and was appalled when I read about what had happened to you. Continue to be strong and have faith that you will get through this and true justice will prevail. I am telling as many people as I can over here so that you know not just Australians care about you, people from all over the world do. My heart and thoughts are with you and will be until you are free and home with your family. xxx

sue tucker said...

hi schapelle.my dad cried for you, and he mentioned you before he passed away, we are thinking of you always, have hope please, hang in there, walk with your head held high. justice one day will be served.

Belinda said...

None of us know what you are really going through, we can only imagine that its at least a billion times worse than we think..Please know that the majority of us Aussies pray for you and believe you are innocent. You have survived this long, dont give up yet, your release is just around the corner. Hang onto that hope just a little longer. The truth of this massive injustice will be exposed.

Not a day goes by where you are not in my thoughts. I wish for the day when you are again living the life you were meant to have. Stay strong gorgeous girl. With much love x x x x

Kim said...

Sweetheart, thousands, and thousands, and thousands of people all over the World hold you in their hearts (more than you can ever imagine). Stay strong. There are angels on your shoulders. Justice will prevail.

you are truly amazing, you are brave, you are everything. Your special because you are innocent. May punishment come to them in time when you are released, as the whole world believes you,that all that matters. I pray for you that you can leave there. Just remember you are awesome and we all care about you xxx

my dear Schapelle
I live in Chile in a small town called Villa Alemana, one day almost 4 years ago I saw your face in HBO, for me was so unfair, and since that moment I try to send you all my good vibrations, I would like to send you letters, but i didn't found the way to do it. I showed your webpage and I have to translate becuase nobody speaks and read English in my home, but at the first moment we knew you are inocent!! you aren't guilty. My heart and my mind is with you my dear, as I said before I would like to send you a letter, maybe I can give you a nice moment... take care, kisses for you...

Debbie said...

Shapelle, you are constantly in my prayers and I only wish there was more I could do towards your freedom. I was recently detained for a short time by police in a third world country and all I could think of was you - the injustice, the horror, the loneliness. You are not alone. We know you are innocent and the Truth will set you free. May God shine His light on the whole truth so all is exposed. God protect you, bless you, and give you peace.

Rebecca said...

Schapelle,

Your strength, courage and commitment are amazing attributes. Don’t let other people bring you down, keep some love for yourself; you deserve it more than anything in this world!

KC K said...

Hey Schapelle,

Wow my heart goes out for you. I know the suffering you are experiencing first hand. 10 years ago in California of all places I was sent to prison for crimes I didn't do. The local cops/lawyers and courts were part of the corruption. 5 years ago I spent my Christmas in the psychiatric ward of a California prison. Yeah I know all this crap they are putting you through is hard, but once you are released you will be smarter and wiser than most people. Oh and BTW I think you are way hotter than most of the celebrity chicks out there! Keep your head strong! J-h is still looking out for you as hard as it seems to believe right now.

Schapelle, I think of you all the time. I cry for you and pray for you. I'm always trying to scheme up ways in my mind to get someone--the right people--to listen. I do have faith that the day will come that that will happen.

But in the mean time, Schapelle, please please know that there are so many people spread across the entire globe who support and love you; who know your innocence; who want nothing more than for you to be able to go home. And I guarantee you that for every written piece of love supporting you, there are a hundred more who support you just as much but just don't write it down.

I send you so much love and as much as I don't know what to say, the only thing I know I can say is to keep holding on. It will be worth it, Schapelle.

Sending you "beaucoup de love" from Canada,
Erin Kuhns xoxo

Dear Schapelle,
I first learned or your situation while watching the documentary, "Ganja Queen" at my house in the US. I was overwhelmed by the end of it and shocked at what i just saw. You truly are one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen. I have been fighting for you as hard as I can writing on my Facebook about you and why they should free you. I sent a letter to the australian prime minister as well asking and begging him to do something. If nothing is done to free you soon, I promise I will do whatever it takes with whoever it takes to free you Schapelle. I love you for your incredible spirit and determination to keep going. Please hang in there as I would like to meet you one day. You are incredible and I will pray for you. With much love from the states,
Sincerely,

Hi Schapelle,
As you can see from all these messages, you are so loved!! I hope you stay strong and show them that you will hang in there till you have your justice and your freedom. Please do not give up, because you still need to believe that there is a safe and vibrant and fulfilling life waiting out there for you!! I wrote you a letter Schapelle. I was hoping to hear back from you. I understand that you are not able to return a letter right now. I read your book, and I feel that justice really did you wrong and your rights were taken away so harshly. I cannot believe all that you went through!! I wish you the best Schapelle. I hope one day we can meet!! Stay strong and keep the faith. We believe in your innocence!!! Love, Dianna

Schapelle, you are an amazing woman to stay so strong through this appalling injustice. Keep strong because so many people are working very hard to get you out of there. There is more support and admiration for you than you could ever imagine and the numbers are growing every day. There is so much love and positive energy being sent to you. Don't lose hope. One day they're going to come to your cell and tell you you are free. With love, Marina

May you find the ways to stay positive until your journey finds it's way back to those who are holding vigil for you.
You and I have never met but your plight has been with me since the beginning when many of us held protest rallies here in Vancouver demanding your release.
I hope you can feel my positive hopes for you as you read this.
What is is, and what will be will be, all you can do is guide your thoughts and emotions as time marches on.
There are legion of us with you in spirit and tho you may find it hard to believe, much good will result from what has happened to you.
As you face the hardship of the present, remember that this too will pass and there are better times ahead.
On behalf of myself and all of my friends,
much love is sent to you.

schapelle,

I pray for your safe return home.
please stay strong, and hold on to whatever faith you have. Know that you are loved and cared for.
I dont know if you believe in God, but I know He has comforted me and has rescued me in bad situations. Believe God for everything, because with God nothing is impossible.

psalm 23
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Stay positive, and have faith.

Love Kaley Dawn in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Jennifer Bertrand said...

Schappelle---you are not forgotten on a daily basis.

You will some day be able to look back on all of this......I promise, you will survive it all because you have to.

In the matter of a year, I had won a reality show, found out I was pregnant, we were told Winston had a tumor, lost my tv show I was suppose to have won, our lives changed to a world of medical drama-- Winston has a trach, a feeding tube, nursing care, died on us once and my husband saved him, we struggle to survive on a daily basis and I know some day I too will look back on my story just like you will.

I live in Olathe, Kansas, very randomly but your story has touched me from the moment I saw the documentary on it and I have never forgotten about you. You can do it, Schappelle!!!!!!

The best revenge is survival and then sharing your story. There are other innocent people who have found themselves in the same situation and you can represent everyone.

It's not a fight you signed up for or something you wanted to do, let's face it. But I am sending a huge hug to your soul. All of us all around the world are here to hold your soul up as you struggle through this but you can do it. I know you can.

Big, huge, air hugs--

Schapelle. I have never given up supporting you. Right from the beginning.

You questioned that people may forget you.

No. I have never stopped supporting you.

In the fullness of time. I believe you will be exonerated of what the Indonesian Government accused you of.

Hi Schapelle, Please know that you are never far from my thoughts and prayers. While I know it is difficult to stay positive in the wake of everything that you have experienced, I know soon you will be free to return home and start the healing process. Please know that you have so many people who care about what happens to you from all over the globe who will do anything they can to assist you. Do not ever feel like you have been forgotten because there are many who truly care. With love from Canada xoxoxox

Max Stelmacker said...

I have a feeling that there are definitely some people out there in the world enjoying freedom who should be paying for their crimes instead.

I also have a feeling that you are not one of these people.

I do also hope that others who do so enjoy freedom at what cost, remember to take the time to recall and care for those unjustly imprisoned.

There are far too many case book case examples here in the free West of people wrongly imprisoned who are then exonerated. We do not need to narrow our focus on a Muslim nation or hold prejudice against them.

It is my sincere hope the light of truth will pave the way towards your exoneration and release.

And that all of our hopes, prayers and dreams for you are answered. Be strong, be well and so will we.

HELLO SCHAPELLE,

My name is Craig Walters and you probably do
not know me since you been away for awhile and
I am a well known Sci-Fi book author and have
written 6 books so far and plan to write many
more books and shorts stories.

Your story touched me and I watched the film about you and got madder and madder at this situation and have since commented on several
sites, time to time about the unjustice that
has been done to you.

We all want you to come home soon and for you
to get justice against those who have done this
to you. Please hang in there and stay calm and
collective, as justice will prevail in your case.

I think of you and your family day and night, hoping this nightmare is coming to an end real soon. You know by now that thousands of "friends" all over the world are standing behind you and hundreds of them are doing all they can to get you back home. It's easy for me to say my dearest, but don't loose hope, don't give up, believe in the future as strong as we believe in you. We all love you, dearest friend.

May this be the year that you are finally freed.
All the best from Helle

dear shapelle,

something that always helped me...
Footprints in the Sand


One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints,
is when I carried you."

stay strong
lots of love
nikki

Innocent One.

Know that we are all behind you. Your hope and energy, and ours, have to be as strong as those bars that temporarily hold you. We think about you every day, we discuss your situation every day. We are as outraged about what happened to you as ever. I know you have your dark days when your mind is not yours, I have seen that with my own eyes. But when your spirit is up, let it be strong Schapelle. I'd hate to see you change too much. Let nothing stop you from surviving this.

Sending you LOVE & HEALING energy to soothe your soul... Much Aloha Schapelle from The Big Island of Hawaii. ~Valerie


-Still I Rise-


You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history's shame
I rise
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

Maya Angelou-

Arriba Photography said...

Dear Schapelle

I Think God did not tell you how long because if He did you may not have been able to sustain it, His love for you is to protect you.
We do not always understand His ways and they are not always easy, but as time passes its not till later that we see and understand some of Gods ways.
I'm sure heaven is at war against the devil, and doing everything possible to fight on your behalf.
An exdample: Romans 15:14-33 Paul says he urges them by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit. These are strong words. This is a plea. It is a plea for Christians to become serious about engaging in prayer. What is in view is diligent, daily, intercessory spiritual warfare in prayer. We are engaged in a battle. It is not a battle against flesh and blood, but rather, it is a battle against principalities and powers and spiritual wickedness in heavenly places. The only way that this battle is to be won is through the prayers of God’s people as they engage the hosts of hell in spiritual warfare. Paul is exhorting the Roman Christians and likewise he is exhorting us to struggle in prayer.

And so I continue to pray for you and against the evil powers againts you that they will be broken and you will come home soon
And I do believe it will be soon
Love Sonja

Hold on, in my heart i can feel you have a feature with love and hope. The world is change these days. First to the bad, and then it will turns to good. It will be a hard task. Many people suffer in these evil, we had to fight for the right thing. For the good. There is a God abowe, and its so hard somtimes to understand i`ts intensions. Pain can somtimes give new light over humans. God loves you, but if you do not tell the truth, you never get a real freedom. Real freedom is a truth, and nobody owns the truth, it eksists and we can not use it for ego itself. I will send good toughts to you.

Dear Schapelle,

I think of you often. Yes, please be strong. Yes, we want you to come home - many of us! I believe you are innocent. I agree with Barb-could be my sister, who has kept me informed about you and got me obsessed. My sister and I have discussed and sympathised about you and what you have been through. Like Barb said, people have wrongly done jail for years, then been let out - so I hope that's the case for you! Lots of love Dianne XO South Australia

Dear Schapelle
Even though you don't know me, you are always somewhere in my thoughts. Time is an odd thing, and nothing lasts forever. Each day is one day closer to your freedom. Know yourself, know your strengths and hold on to that. In the meantime stay safe, healthy and positive. Best wishes for now. Heather.

Hello Schapelle. I just want you to know that tho you may seem alone much of the time "you are NOT alone". I believe in your innocents and there are tens of thousands of people globally that also believe you are innocent in all of this. There is such power in numbers and with that power I so strongly believe that your freedom will soon reign. Please hold onto this thought Schapelle. Please keep strong and when you are so terribly low please think of all of the support you do have by the people that have sent you their love and support for you in this ongoing difficult time. Please don't let anyone take your "humanity" and "dignity" from you. I know you will not give up if you hold onto those two things and the public will not give up on bringing you home. I wish you all the best and send my love and compassion to you.

I will never know your strength. I will never come close to it. Since I learned about you twoo years ago, whenever I have a moment of weakness or I feel that I cannot go further, I think of you and I find courage. I will never understand why this has happened to you, and I hope and pray that it's resolution will come soon. However many prayers need to be said, I will do my part and beg for your health and your release. I have no advice as to how to calm your anxious heart, but mine will think of you every time it beats hard with fear. Take care of yourself and blow kisses to the air when you are lonely, someone will kiss your cheek back.

Sherry said...

Schapelle, You have not been forgotten. There are thousands possibly millions of people who love you and have you in their prayers every day. The power of prayer can create miracles. These monsters of injustice can chain your body to a wall but they can never take your spirit. Your spirit is living on and your cries are heard echoing through the valleys of many hearts and souls. Sending you healing love.

Dear Schapelle,
Even though you are going through a lot of injustice, please remember this poem:

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?”

The Lord replied,
“The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you.”

I am from the Netherlands and have read your book. I really wish I could help you in any way. Know that your story is known and heard.
Please get and keep your strength, God Bless You.

Dear Schapelle-

Since the first time I heard your story, my heart has hurt. I....like so many thousands I'd others throughout the globe, BELIEVE IN YOU!! I have to trust in God and believe that good will prevail. Please take comfort and hope in knowing how many people love, respect, admire, and believe in you. You are a strong, beautiful woman and your goodness WILL prevail and you WILL leave that place soon and you WILL have a fulfilling, beautiful future. You MUST hang on to this. You are SO loved, beautiful lady. I'm praying non-stop for your comfort, peace, health, and for your release.

Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.


In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.

Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,

other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed

that during the low periods of my life,

when I was suffering from

anguish, sorrow or defeat,

I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,

But I have noticed that during

the most trying periods of my life

there have only been one

set of footprints in the sand.

Why, when I needed you most,

you have not been there for me?"


The Lord replied,

"The times when you have

seen only one set of footprints,
is when I carried you."

I am from California and I recently came across your story. I can only imagine how you feel. What is being done to you is terribly wrong and unjust. The world we live in is so backwards and we don't see things for what they really are sometimes. People deserve better. You deserve to be free in the world. Please remember until that day that from where I stand I can see many, many people who like myself wish nothing but the best for you. That wish for your freedom and many other's who are petitioning and fighting for your rights as a human being who deserves so much more. And one day it will all come together. I wish this day to be tomorrow and no latter than next week. I wish this day to be today that you are free. I hope this reaches you and brings you a smile.

Dear Schapelle,

I am originally from Germany but have lived in California near San Francisco for the last 20 years. I saw the documentary about you and your trial a few days ago and was absolutely shocked.
I imediately did a search on the Internet about you and joined a facebook group for women to support you.
I will do anything I can to help get you your freedom back! Nobody should endure what you are experiencing. Please stay strong - do not give your power over to these people and to the injust justice system and the politicians that have failed you!
I am sending you healing thoughts (I own a little day spa and do Reiki - a form of energy healing) I will also ad your name to my mother in laws prayer list of her church.
I am not a religous person - but have put many people on this prayer list before and it has helped amazingly.
Seeing how many people have shared their well wishes here, you have a lot of support out in the world - believe in that, believe in your fighting spirit - ask you Guardian Angeles to be with you. They took your freedom but they can not take your spirit - hold on to that.
One of my biggest dreams in live was always to go to Bali - now after I found out about your story I will not go there until you are free - I do not want to support a country that has such an unjust justice system!
Please let me know - or ask Mercedes to let me know if there is anything we can do - or I can do. Letters to Authorties I could write etc.
Stay strong - know people out here care about you!
Big hugs and a huge smile to you, your supporter Corinna

Schapelle darl,
Keep strong and brave & keep faith that you will be out of Kerobokan one day hopefully soon! Just like with the sea, the tide has to turn at some point & you will be relieved of your nightmare.
You are always in our thoughts.

Hello Schapelle. I'm only 15 but I am touched by your story and I wish there was more I could do to help you! My Mum let me read your book and we both cried for you. I was amazed by what your words said; I didn't know there was a place on earth like what you describe. Please remember your family and everyone else around the world love you and are thinking of you. Well done Schapelle, stay strong xxx

Dear Schappelle,Use your time learning and doing meditation.
Keep your head held high, and think positive.
I cannot understand why these politicians have no balls to defend you,i think they are all yes men.
I think they are gutless wonders,and most are girly men anyway.
You should have been freed years ago.
They have no proof against you, its all here say.
Any proof has been destroyed.
If i was a politician you would be outa here now.
So we are all thinking and fighting for you and you will be freed ASAP. So keep strong.
Love you Graeme Simmons Victoria Australia.

Hey Schappelle

I am Charlotte, I have lived in Australia for the past eight years, first in Melbourne and now in Brisbane. I love it here. I just wanted to say hi because I have been overwhelmed by your story. Life has been unkind to you and I just wanted you to know that many of us here in Australia feel that you have been unjustly treated. I have always been amazed by your strength, and I have heard that you don't always feel so strong anymore but you are strong. I will always be an advocate for your case and I mention you often to people so that they won't forget you. You are a strong beautiful woman, please don't forget that even in the hardest times. Thinking of you always
Charlotte (Brisbane)

Hey girl.
Your testimony is no doubt something that should never have to happen to anyone, but on the other hand you have been such an inspiration to the world through this. You're truly an amazing woman who has captured the hearts of many.
I wanted to remind you though that through everything, know that the God of this world is a God of justice and a God that loves you deeper than anyone could. He is bigger than any of this and will have it in his hands. He is someone you can trust fully and knows exactly how you feel and why. Hold onto Him because he holds onto you.
We love and care for you heaps!

Hi Schapelle, I am Debbie from Busselton in Western Australia. I have always believed you are innocent and know that injustice has been dished out to you Just as injustice was dished out to Jesus as the innocent lamb of.g God.u .We know he died for a special purpose to secure our eternal salvation with Him as He raised from the dead.You know He also promises this to you as well as a believer. This life in the grand scale is minescuel.k in comparrison of what is to come. Take hold and take heart of His pro.mises and never let go. Hold onto your life that He has given you and know that you can be a great testimony to the world and help many be saved through your corageous faith. I think of you often and pray for your early release and even consider visiting you as well. We share the same date of birth so you can never be far from me.Remember to read the word of God daily and pray for God has said He will never leave you nor forsake you.. Debbie xxx n ways

Kimbo said...

Schapelle,
You're one of the strongest people, if not the strongest person I've ever seen in my Life. Honey i'm sorry for everything you're going through. I became aware of you from HBO's documentary. I live in Oklahoma. I've followed you since I heard of your injustice. We are out here! We love you! We want you wheroutou belong, which is home with your family. Please hang in there! Justice will find you. Much love to you and your family! <3


Love to you ! Love to you! (((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))))))! <3


Love,

Kimberly Northcutt

Kimbo said...

You're beautiful. Please know i'm not a crazed religous person, but I find myself (since I found out about Bali's horrid farce-over 2 years ago) saying a prayer just under my breath for you all through out the day. I try to pray every single night and even though I've never had the pleasure of meeting you I include you in my prayers along side my best of friends and my family.

I feel love for you. I can't explain. My brother's a Sgt for the Police Dept here and I was a Special Education tteacher. When I look in your eyes

I see your truth. BS I see THE truth, not just your truth. There's one truth in this world darlin and I know deep in my soul you're speaking it. I don't have money. I don't have anything of vaLue except pen to paper. I've been a member of Women ForYou on facebook for a long time. I've read everything I c
an about you on both sides of the issue and all I hear from their side is the same crap
over snd over and if someone's reading this who just wants to pick and bi(th anf moan about you then I suggest they become educated in both side. If they have one brain cell left they will see the truth. YOUR truth! God is holding you tight. We are
too. I love you. I wish I could do more, but
please please know we love abd support you! (((((((Hugs)))))))) and L <3 VE to you!!

Love,

Kimberly aka Kimbo from above.

I just had to add more.


BTW even my friends who have been Policemen 20 years and
then some have watched the hbo documentary and every one
of them believe myou! You are loved and believed by more than you can even imagine.

Love,

Kimberly Northcutt <3

Oh Schapelle...
I dont think a single day has gone by that I dont think about you since I have seen your story on HBO. I am still in utter disbelief that you are still where you are, and find myself thinking that, I have probably been a worse person than you on occasion, and if I could switch spots with you, I would.
I know there is very little comfort of any sort where you are, and know holding onto anything that represents comfort is probably harder than nothing, but just know you have so many people praying for you. I am not a religous person of any sort, but I do pray for you...to whoever it is that listens to my prayers.
I draw so much strength from you, and when life gets down on me? I think of you and your situation. And suddenly, my life dont seem even a morsel of a fraction as bad as it did. So granted you are in a horrible situation, Im sure there are numerous numbers of people who like me, draw strength from you. And we thank you for that.
We are all praying for your safe return to your home in Australia. And when that day comes? I really hope to be at your destination's airport, cheering you on as you take your first steps on your native land as a free woman. Just a dream right now, I know, but it is a reality. IT WILL happen! Thoughts become things, and as hard as it must be to stay positive, you must try at least once a day to tell yourself you are going home.
I feel love for you, I feel sadness for you, and I feel completely helpless for you...I wish there was more I could do. Stay strong and beautiful, as I am sure you are the only thing beautiful enough to brighten up that awful place you are in.
All my love from Canada, hoping for you daily.

Schapelle:

I live in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. You have so many people here who not only have heard about you and care about you, we are willing to fight for you. You are a strong woman who can overcome anything. We are so proud of you. You are being a very brave girl in there, Schapelle. I think you are completely innocent and I will do what I can to help you be free. Please try and think of good things no matter how hard it may be. Try and find one thing every day (no matter how small) that makes you smile. I hope you have friends there that try to help you smile as well. I think about about you every day and I pray that you will be free. There are hundreds of thousands of people all over the world that worry and care about what happens to you. I care what happens to you. We love you and need you to be strong. I hope that someday we will meet face to face and I can hug you and tell you that I love you and that you are the bravest person I know.

Hope, prayers and LOVE from Canada,

Angie Barr

I cannot believe that the Australian Government would allow this suffering of an innocent woman to continue. I have ALWAYS believed in your innocence, from day one. Nothing will persuade me to believe otherwise. You are LOVED Schapelle, I don't know you personally but you are like a little sister to me and it makes me so angry and upset that you are suffering unnecessarily. I pray that you are released soon and that you will be surrounded by family and friends who will love and protect you xoxo

Linda said...

In NZ - Schapelle, just know that there are others out here that think of you and send you every warm thought and energy to you and hope you feel this and it helps to sustain you during this terrible period in your life. Know that it will end and one day - hopefully soon - you will be free. xx
