Triggers are different for everyone. You never know when they are going to show up. I am sharing in hopes of helping others. The One Billion Rising Video is a graphic depiction of violence.
If you need immediate assistance call 911 or your country’s emergency service number. For a complete list of resources click here.
It is time to break the chain. It is time to stand up and be counted. I know that abuse and violence don’t discriminate. All ages, genders, races, countries, and religions are affected. The One Billion Rising movement focuses on Violence against Women Globally.
To The Broken
Screams in the night
Silent cries you don’t hear
Souls begging for help
Bodies writhing in pain
Agony Tearing up flawless skin
Broken children of the night
Here’s to the Broken
The fighters and Believers
The misunderstood people
The world’s true face
The children who wonder where things went wrong.
Smiles Painted on Masks
Painfully stating “I’m Fine”
When what needs to be said is “Save Me”
Scars that want to be butterflies
Nightmares that want to be dreams
True color of the years
Here’s to the people who wonder where they belong.
to the unloved children
Here’s to the Broken.
because their heartbeats slowly fade to nothingness

I am joining the movement with a wonderful organization SHEROES United. We will be sharing our message at the United Nation Civil Society Convention.
SHEROES United is a Global Movement of Women Who DARE to Change the World through Love.
SHERO is a female hero; a woman that displays strong heroic traits under tremendous pressure and is triumphant over her circumstances. A SHERO is a Woman who is an active giver, an example of what is possible, and a brilliant inspiration to people of all ages.
“It is the greatest time for women in all of human history. It is the darkest time for women in all of human history. What matters is what we make of it! But we simply must start now.”~ Bridget Cook-Burch, Executive Director, SHEROES United
“Chase your passion, and success will follow you. Success demands passion and purpose.” – Celeste Gleave, Founder SHEROES United.,
