Pause

I paused today to be Thankful.
I am Thankful for this day.
I am Thankful for life.
I am Thankful to breath.
I am Thankful for the ability to live and breathe another day.

Life is worth living.
Life gets better.

Pause, live and breathe another day.

Survivor’s Story – The Sum of What I Have Learned

By Anonymous

Do you remember as a child when you were told exercise is good for you? You exercise to regain yourself, to feel prettier, feel healthy. Sometimes it doesn’t work that way. There are people waiting lurking in the shadows. The shadow people have no heart, no sense of right and wrong. They only think of themselves and have no remorse for the pain they inflict on others.

To survive the showdown you must fight for your life. Shadow people will do more than rape you. You must fight for your life, because it depends on it. Fight like it is the last night you will breath or be on this earth. Fight!!!

Shadow people know their prey. Be prepared for what follows. Change your locks and phone number. My shadow person had a key. I only found out after he broke in and ransacked my safe place. He would call my phone, to the point that my phone would scare me when it rang. I changed my locks, phone number and added a deadbolt.

Trust your instinct. To survive you must know your surroundings. If something doesn’t feel right trust yourself. It is ok to trust your instincts.

Change things up. Don’t always jog in the same place or same time. Don’t go to the gym or leave work like a time clock. Being unpredictable is safe. No one should be able to map out your day or night.

All of these things saved me from my shadow person. I trusted my instincts. If you think you are being followed or stalked believe in yourself? You are not crazy. You are being safe.

Fight for your life. You may be punched, broken and bruised but you will be alive for another day. I was badly punched, broken and bruised but I am alive. Alive for another day, another month, another year.

Fight like it is the last night you will breath or be on this earth. Fight for your life. Fight!!!


“I love the per…

“I love the person I’ve become, because I fought to become her.”

A Moment In Time

Today I was feeling a little sorry for myself.
I had a lot happen this week.
Deaths seem to come and go a lot.
Sadness and sickness in my family comes and goes a lot.
My life is still undecided up in the air.
It is hard not knowing.
It is hard waiting.
It is hard.

Tonight by chance I ended up taking a break.
Tonight I tried to do what seventeen year olds do.
I saw a movie.
It seems innocent enough.
I took my mother and we saw a movie together.
It was supposed to be fun.
It wasn’t until we walked in that I realized where we were.
How could I be so absent minded to pick this theatre?
How could this place still exist?
Why didn’t Aurora tear it down?

I paused as we walked past the police in the movie theatre.
I paused as my mother made us sit close to an exit.
I paused when my mother instructed me to run for the exit if needed.
I paused and thought about those who sat before me in this theatre.

Now I would like to ask all of you to pause.
Take a moment and think of what you are thankful for.
I am thankful I am alive tonight.
I am thankful for all that God has given me.

My life has its ups and downs.
It has its death and sorrows.
It has life.

I realize life is worth living.
I realize life is worth fighting for.
I realize how lucky I am.

My hope is that you pause and realize too.
Life is worth living.
Live is worth fighting for.
Yes life has its ups and downs but that is what makes it special.
Live your life, every moment to the fullest.

This is my prayer for you my friends.
Live your lives.
Be happy.

I Thank God for you.
I Thank God for me.
I pray you heal.
I pray I heal.
I pray for the sun to shine and break through the darkness.
I pray that tomorrow will be the best day for you.

Sleep well my friends God is with thee.


“Tribal leaders Order Gang Rape Of Indian Girl When Will The Men Stand Up”

I do not understand how a civilized society could act like this. It makes me sick to my stomach.

Stand Tall

Sometimes you need to pause and reavaluate. You need to look in the mirror and see who you are. I did that this past week. I realized my worth.

This was forced on me when I was excluded from something that I so wanted. It turns out all I wanted was acceptance for who I am. I was forced to look myself in the mirror and I realized that it was their loss.

I may only be seventeen but I am a fierce force. I am strong. I am smart. I am a good person. I am a leader among my peers and community.

I am proud of my heritage. I am proud of who I am. I am proud to be me.

Never forget never forget your roots, they will hold you up when someone tries to knock you down.

Has you ever cried yourself to sleep
Jumped when the phone rang
Lock and relocked the door
Barricaded the door
Locked your bedroom door
Barricaded your bedroom door
Slept with a knife between the mattresses
Slept with a baseball bat in bed

It gets easier over time
It never fully goes away
It gets easier over time

You begin to block it out
You begin to replace it with new memories
You begin to live again

Sometimes it comes back
Fear is an old friend
It never really goes away
It sneaks up on you
It fools you at times

One day I hope
One day I pray
One day it will be forgotten
