In Memory

Kayla would have been just a manufactured memory to her family, friends, and children, had she not taken the courage to walk away from her abusive husband.

 
She found out she could leave only after he tried to kill her.


Let there be no more Kayla, let every woman live a life they deserve.

 
Together let us join the rest of the world in celebrating the hero in every woman, this MARCH 2021


Yes! There’s no place for complacency.

 
Sadly though none of us will probably witness the end of the culture of violence in our lifetimes, and nor likely will many of our children.

 
But, we can all play a part.


Women have the right to live free from violence.

Let your voice be heard

    It is hard standing on the sidelines watching a woman of abuse that is a family member stay with him everytime something happens. And once they are free and he wags his finger and they go back is the worse feeling.

      I agree, this is indeed very difficult – witnessing a family member being abused and knowing that after all the drama she will still go back to the very same man..

  9. This is so powerful and important, SweetMich! Thank you for keeping it in the forefront. People must be educated and challenged to step out, speak up and make life better for women and children in our world.
    I’ve known too many battered women. 😦
    I’ve been able to help some. And others aren’t yet ready (for various reasons) to attempt changes, so I keep loving them and letting them know that when they are ready I’m ready to help.
