Help Me Fight Abuse and Domestic Violence! Urgent!!

I was given a miracle in the form of a dear friend whom I call my family. There is no way to thank this soul for their kindness…I can only hope they know how thankful I am for their care and help…. Currently, I am in need of a little money to escape the place I currently am. My sweet friend saw the abuses and wanted to help me get back to safety. In addition, knowing how deeply I desire to help others he put together a perfect GoFundMe page in my name, and I couldn’t be more honored or thankful…

I hate asking for help, I hate asking for money, but I am in a desperate situation and if anyone can find it in their hearts to help, I’ll do anything possible as my thanks… Additionally, the entire money isn’t just for me; once I’m back in safety I plan on helping other survivors and/or victims of abuse. This is a horrific tragedy that has been going on for far too long; it has been kept a secret for far too long; in far too many houses… Please, please share or if you can even a dollar helps… Thank you for reading; I would appreciate even just a share…. Thank you all again; I appreciate all of you…

Plans for Resource Pages for Victims of Domestic Abuse & The Like

Over the next week I will be working on numerous projects as well as attending some personal business, but as I can, I am working on putting up more info, resources, links, hotlines, shelter locations and the like for abused women and men in North America as well as all over the world.

Right now both pages are a bit of a mess, please bare with me as I do this. Regardless of where you are from, if you have a page I either have not listed or probably would not know about regarding abuse, rape, abortion (helpful pro-abortion ONLY) please comment or email for it to be included…

I have been impacted pretty much by everything I write about on this site in one way or another. I also know how hard it is to find resources, especially when in distress. My hope and goal for the pages on my site are to provide a “one stop” for people in need. Please bare with me as I work on building these pages up.

In the near future, I will be creating a “sister” page to this site dedicated solely to racism, the prison industry and the war on the people, aka, the war on drugs as well as drug and legal information. One step further, I also would like a mental health page up….But one step at a time, aye? 🙂

Thanks again to all the readers who have stayed with me as I have been going through this silent spell, and a huge thanks to the new ones also… I will return to my normal writing self soon, hopefully with a lot of improvements!

 

Officer on Paid Leave After Assaulting Pregnant Wife

This makes me sick; all that I write on pretty much does because it shows society’s ugly side, but it hits home a bit too much. And it is an open dismissal of violence against women, if you ask me.

Quincy Police Captain Michael Miller has been put on a paid vacation aka administrative leave after being charged with aggravated assault…against his former wife, who is 9 months pregnant. Apparently, this cop went to pick up his five year old daughter Friday when the assault happened. Details to my knowledge have not been released yet.

At 4 in the afternoon the police received the phone call for a domestic violence dispute. Later that day, his former wife filed a restraining order against Miller. Chief Keenan claimed: Continue reading Officer on Paid Leave After Assaulting Pregnant Wife

The Judgmental and the Survivors- Be Proud Survivors

This post is really no different from any other post I write; it’s all about judgmental people, and hoping that within my battle, you will find a reminder or anything positive (I hope this so much) to help you know you’re a) not alone and b) not anywhere near what they want you to think you are. You are a strong being, a strong soul that has survived things they could never understand. The strong one here is you; not the ones who make fun or try to make those who are already down feel even worse.

Be proud of who you are… I am still working on that myself to be honest… But in regards to my mental health, childhood and scars from years of self-injury, I am NOT ashamed.

Excellent Resource for Abused Women Internationally!

I am working on so many projects at the moment… But this is vital information, I believe. It is an international website with abundant information for victims of both rape and/or domestic abuse. The website is called the “International Directory of Domestic Violence Agencies”, it is available in over 100 languages. Whether you are in America, England, Cairo; wherever, this website is full of information regarding things such as your legal rights regarding domestic violence and much, much more.

I plan on finally updating the domestic violence *page* at the top ^ with a lot of other resources and summaries of each state’s laws regarding domestic violence, but until then I truly believe this is a website vital to all women AND men 🙂 check it out by clicking HERE.

Aprox. 90 precent of Women in Prison as of 2008 are in for Killing Abusive Partner – While Abusers Get Little to No Time

“The average prison sentence for men who kill their intimate partners is 2 to 6 years. Women who kill their partners are sentenced, on average, to 15 years.

A pair of Maryland cases vividly illustrates this inequality in sentencing. In one case, a judge in Baltimore County, Maryland sentenced Kenneth Peacock to 18 months for killing his unfaithful wife. The very next day, another judge in the same county sentenced Patricia Ann Hawkins to three years in prison for killing her abusive husband. Significantly, the prosecutor in the Peacock case requested a sentence twice as long as the one imposed, while the prosecutor in the Hawkins case requested one-third of the sentence imposed.”

“As many as 90% of the women in prison today [2008] for killing men had been battered by those men.”
