These words have been rattling around in my brain as of late. I am applying them to not only myself but those who have harmed me. I admit there is some question as to whether or not any or all of them are part of my conversation. This may sound confusing, let me attempt to … Continue reading Justice, Judgement, Mercy and Forgiveness
I have written before about life sentences right here. When you kill you get life, often with no chance of parole. For those who were sexually abused as children, they serve a silent life sentence too. No family speak on the behalf of the victim, there is no publicity, there is no smoking gun.

I am not a student of MLK, and I admit I need to learn more about this great man. There are many things he accomplished and many amazing speeches he made during his time cut short on this Earth. It might have been his forthrightness that hastened his assassination, his fight for justice and equality … Continue reading Martin Luther King got this Right!

If you are struggling with your ability to withstand the descriptions of sexual abuse I caution you to consider what you do next. These are my memories and recollections. They … Continue reading This is Where it all Began
Michael Jackson. Legendary Icon of the entertainment industry, beloved the world over, soft-spoken, demanding perfection, success beyond most humans in the history of mankind. He endured difficult times, his childhood, accusations and personal judgements throughout his career. An amazing talent is an understatement, he was the G.O.A.T that was gone all too soon.

Yesterday, I was challenged to stop remaining a victim in my claims of mental illness and laying part of the blame where it firmly belongs. If you read posts that I have published you will see my ability to be repentant, display genuine anguish and accept responsibility for my actions over the years. The fact that … Continue reading A Victim, is a Victim, is a Victim
