First she survived being stabbed 19 times. Police say it was by her 12-year-old friends. The suspects allegedly told police they did it to please an online fictional character named “Slender Man.”
Then she crawled to safety from the woods near Waukesha, Wisconsin.
Now as she heals, the girl, whose identity ABC News is not revealing because of her age, continues to inspire many worldwide, with well-wishers creating cards for her on homemade purple hearts.
The little girl and her brother open up the hundreds and some days thousands of packages sent to the family from generous people from all over the world,” Stephen Lyons, the survivor’s spokesperson, told ABC News. “It's therapeutic and something she and her brother do every day.”
But this month a different kind of Purple Heart came for her in the mail: one issued to members of the military wounded service to the country, or to a family whose loved one was killed in the line of duty.
A simple note came attached, Lyons said. It read, “The Only Heart I Could Find – Stay Strong.”

That's simply awesome.
This almost brought tears to my eyes. I wish this young girl the very best. And a salute to to original owner of the Purple Heart.

At first I thought it was issued and i was like "what??" but now after reading that its clear some kind veteran gave it to her.
Would certainly mess with your mental well being to have two people who were supposed to be friends attempt to murder you.
