Hi everyone, and thank you Care2 for such a surprise. WOW, I didn't expect to see this. Anyway, I am to expand on myself here. I am a fighter against Sexual Assault in all facets...Children, Women and even Men. I am a Single Mother of 4 Children. Two Girls and 2 boys. Twenty two, twenty, nineteen, and nine. I am a Survivor of Sexual Assault since a small child, until just a little more then a year ago. I am also a Survivor of the Child Protective Services as a Child and as an Adult. I am passionate about the Government reconstructing that system into something more functional and less currupt. I am also an American Indian mixed blood, and am VERY passionate about the plight of my people on all corners of the earth. From all the negative influences in my life, I know I had become stronger then I could have ever imagined I could be. My goal is to teach my sons and daughters to respect eachother, themselves, and others, and make life a little easier for my daughters & granddaughters. I want to make it so, when they dream it, they can live it, without the repocussions I had. I want them to have control of their destinys.
I'm a surviver of many facets of sexual assault. I'm also a Truckdriver who was Raped twice by my Trainers from 2 different companies. Neither company did anything to help, and neither did the law.
I feel I have earned my right of passage. I see myself as a emotionally strong person, but sensitive enough to pick up on someone elses feelings.
I'm laid back, BUT PASSIONATE ABOUT MY BELIEFS, but respectful to others about theirs. I am also blessed with the ability to accept individuals as they are. I have been born lacking hardcore predgidice, even though I was raised in a predgedice home. It never took hold on me. I also believe strongly in RESPECT. Everyone deserves it at first, and at face value. But, respect can be lost.
Lifes too short to be miserable.
What Gives Me Hope
My inner-self. I believe in the Creator, and my spirit guides.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Build an International portal link pool, for sex offenders. Then I would make it a feloney to deliberately abuse or neglect an animal dependent on the care of a human being.
What/who changed my life and why
Micheal Robert Hobson, a psycotherapist, taught me, noone can force me to feel anything; I have choices. So, I don't give anyone the power to control my reactions.
Hi there! I only just recently returned to Care2, playing catch up! Just wanted to take a moment to stop by your page and say thank you for your friendship, and to wish you a very happy belated birthday! Hope all has been well with you!!
