I am honored to announce that I have been asked to be a guest at GeekGirlCon 2012.  I will be speaking about the impact of domestic violence in our society and what 'Everyday Heroes' can do to help bring an end to this silent and vicious crime. 

 

Kitty Genovese

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing"


Catherine Susan "Kitty" Genovese (July 7, 1935 – March 13, 1964) was 28 years old when she was stabbed to death near home in Queens, New York on March 13, 1964.  Her story is not directly related to domestic violence. But it is a low point in American history that reminds us why 'Everyday Heroes' are needed.

My Abuser

I'm a smart, well educated, and strong woman with good judgement. I feel a positive or negative 'vibe' in people when I first meet them which has proven itself to be quite accurate over the years.  But contrary to my 'woman's intuition', I fell into a relationship with an abusive person.  I've contemplated the reason for this especially after writing the webpage article on this site about the behavior of abusive people.

From Darkness into the Light... Harmony's Story

Domestic violence is literally a life or death situation. In the past 2-1/2 months, here in Washington there have been at least three publicized DV-related murders: a beloved teacher, a mother and two kids, and an entire family including the abuser. This only makes me question how many more exist, who are not given the same media attention? How many other victims lost their lives as a result of abuse and violence?

And to think… I was almost one of them.

Gratitude

This next story comes from a woman I still have not had the pleasure of meeting in person. I feel very connected to her as we've shared very personal details surrounding the process of coming out of an abusive relationship.  She recently sent me her personal survivor story... which left me in tears. Happy tears! The work that I have been doing has consumed me.  Some days, I couldn't help but wonder if people were getting my message 'Everyday Heroes Against Domestic Abuse'.  Well now I know, people are hearing my message loud and clear...this campaign is working!!

Teen Dating Violence

The following article about teen dating violence was put together by my dear friend Karla Reese, 'Super Mom Extraodinaire' as I've come to think of her.  As a mother to a teenage daughter, teen dating violence is a big concern of hers. One she takes serious enough to take a proactive role in her daughters life.
