BOONSBORO -- Marilyn Blank's demeanor is calm and content, and she admits she's in a good place right now. The scars on her face, neck, torso and leg, though, are an outward sign that there's more to her story. "At 50, I find myself starting over, but I have the most important things," Blank said. Blank, who has lived in Boonsboro for 23 years, details her personal journey in a book called "Have Faith: Live It, Speak It, Believe It & Survive. " She will share her inspirational story Thursday at the Sharpsburg Public Library at 7 p.m. Blank has two children from her first marriage and is remarried with two more children.
