This article about this extradinary person infers a very subtle, intimate relationship. In order for Miriam to be able to have answered, she probably have asked Hashem WHY. Why this- why me, and Hashem, in His infinite tenderness, gave her the answer that she now gives to us. Miriam asked- she was given an answer- she understood & accepted. None of this might have happened but for the faithfulness of parents, teachers and friends. I thank G-d, for all the good people He has put in her life....Stay Strong Miriam....

I have known Miriam for about 10 years now, and am a much better pereson for it. She is not only a beautiful person inside and out, but a funny, sensitive, caring, and loving human being. I feel priviledged to have watch her "grow up" and mature into the young woman she is today. There is so much more to say about her than what this brief video clip can capture, and viewers should realize that this is just the tip of the iceberg. The struggles Miriam has encountered for her entire life make her a real example of emunah and bitachon in daily life. Thank you to for sharing her story, and thank you Miriam for being the wonderful friend you are!
