that fact that most women and most men just don't want anything to do with what i wanna say... and that is really so sad!  did you know that...


1.3 girls/women are raped every minute in the us!  that's 1,872 girls everyday!

1 out of 3 women/girls are abused by their husband/boyfriend

1 out of 4 women/girls are beaten by their husband/boyfriend

appx 70% of all women murdered are by the hands of their own husband/boyfriend


and i'm just really confused why more women and men are not getting involved to stop this!  very sad!

Our city is great, we do a lot of rallys for WAVI, and other organizations like that. It's sad what's out there, but I'm glad I get to help.

But on the other side everybody needs to remember there are men being abused the exact same way.

It's hard to get victims to come forward and report things like this, and harder still to get them to testify. They feel scared and ashamed. :(

my sister was abused by her husband for 13 years. Finally he shot her in the head (I witnessed it!). She's okay, and of course that was the last straw and she finally was able to get out of the marriage.

I've been molested and abused.  When I told those in authority, I was told that it was my fault, I should have tried harder, etc.  There's not much support and there is definitely a stigma attached to the molested/raped/abused label.
