Violence Unsilenced

Even though this post isn't particularly "wordless" for a Wednesday, I'm kinda feeling compelled to share the video (see below) with you, my dear 33 34 36 readers, b/c it made me cry my face off.  And well, you know I just love making y'all cry.

Also? Because I'm a survivor. And because maybe some of you are too, or someone you know is (or will be). And because these women, men, kids (and most especially Maggie) are my effing heroes. Won't you please take a moment to VOTE for Violence Unsilenced? It was nominated for a 2010 Women's Health Heroes Award on the Our Bodies, Ourselves website and your vote can help get the word out about VU.

I AM a SURVIVOR!

So many of us are, which bums me out (but also makes me feel less "unique" or "alone")...

I still worry every day that my daughter will become a victim in her lifetime at the hands of some scumbag POS that never learned the meaning of the words NO or RESPECT or how to be a MAN instead of a pig.

Sigh.

I can't click the thumb more than once, but wanted to let you know I stopped by. I blogged about this, too - Maggie and VU are incredible, aren't they?

Thank you SO much for this, Cheryl. Lord you are sweet and awesome and, yes, a survivor. THANK YOU. xoxo
