START A PETITION

Dec 7, 2010

The final day for the Male Abuse Awareness week is December 8. Thank you to everyone who has been reading, signing the petition and passing it around. Action is still needed, so please keep signing and passing around this important petition.  Don't forget to visit www.help4guys.org, more information at www.plunafoundation.com.  Thanks!

I want to thank Grandma Elizabeth for sharing the story about baby Sean, who died at the hands of his mother, simply for being a boy. For more information, I'd like to direct everyone to YVI's website page dedicated to the Sean's Voice cause: http://www.youthvoiceinitiative.org/Sean_s_Voice.html

In this section, you will read about how the mother systematically abused her baby, along with the boy's father, whom would try repeatedly to escape with his children, yet would end up incarcerated because the mother would get hysterical and blame the father for the whole thing. It was the worst case of male abuse by a female, and because the police lacked training to understand the situation, and the myths involved that men can't be abused, she was believed, and who knows what happened when the father wasn't home to protect the child.

If, after reading the story, you're not compelled to sign the petition to ensure that our men get equal safety under the law, please sign the Sean's Voice petition to bring emergency shelter, support and services to our unacknowledged survivors of abuse, our men, who currently have little to nothing for them. Here is the petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/a-new-perspective-the-unacknowledged-abuse-survivors/

Please continue to pass the petition around. If you would like to do more, please feel free to email me at lika.yvi@gmail.com - and you don't need to be a public voice, there is plenty to do behind the scenes.

If you haven't already, please check out Michael Skinner Music: http://www.mskinnermusic.com/mskinner.html You will find a lifting experience, along with comradeship while there. I encourage all to go, especially if you're recovering from abuse, male or female.

Another good website is the Children Without a Voice website, which will give you a lot of information about how abuse of all kinds affects children. Please give them a look: http://www.childrenwithoutavoiceusa.org/cms/

These are great organizations, and if you could, please at least give encouraging comments to them. Abuse doesn't take a holiday, and often the stress that comes with the holidays make it worse, so please, keep signing the petition. Here is in honor of baby Sean - the Sean's Voice Petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/a-new-perspective-the-unacknowledged-abuse-survivors/
