Surviving Domestic Violence


My Own Personal Tsunami



As many of you know, most of my blog posts describe in detail my own encounters with domestic violence. I have noticed that with each post comes a significant amount of emotional upheaval. This can be cleansing as well as draining and by draining, I mean the tsunami kind of wipe out.

As a result, I have chosen to post videos, which address the issues women and men encounter every day. It is imperative to my well-being to take a break of sorts before journeying on with the rest of my hideous saga.

I hope you all understand and will be patient with me.

I want to thank all those who follow and support me in my journey to recovery.

I am compelled   PASSIONATE about this issue and I invite you to watch as this small child is forced to act on behalf of her mother and siblings.

I have searched to find the outcome of this horrific event and have yet to find it, however, the true point is to show that there are many, many instances that occur everyday  leaving us bereft of any awareness not to mention answers.  Bringing forward the real truth that these occurrences are ignored and unknown to so many is the true tragedy. My hope is to bring it out in the face of the public to such a degree that we may be forced to see the ugliness that  relentlessly destroys.


Is the fight against domestic violence in crisis?

I am happy to say that Avalanche of the Soul, also known as StrongerSoulSurvivor, whom I affectionately refer to as Triple S, has given me permission to Press this article.  She is indeed a strong advocate for domestic violence and has brought up a vital issue requiring our attention.

Together we can make a difference.
