Help End The Violence!

Good Morning Everyone...Hope your Easter was a Blessed One!  Ours was a quiet one but none the less a very good one...My husband and I saw the grandchildren in the afternoon for a short time and then they headed home and Mike and I went out to dinner...and had a wonderful time...Might do this every Easter! 

April is National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month

Help End Violence Against Women:    You Can Make a Difference

Sign the Petition From Lifetimetv.com:

Tell Congress to fund critical programs that help thousands of victims of domestic, dating and sexual violence. In just a single day, domestic violence programs served nearly 50,000 adults and children in the United States.*  These programs provide emergency shelter, counseling and legal services critical to families trying to escape abusive homes and break the cycle of violence.

Every 2.5 minutes another American is sexually assaulted.** Rape crisis centers, schools and clinics across the country offer medical assistance, counseling and prevention programs.Today, these lifesaving programs are in jeopardy if Congress does not decide to fully fund the landmark Violence Against Women Act of 2005, which Lifetime viewers helped to make law.

You can help again! Make your voice heard by signing this petition to urge Congress to give the funding needed to keep the doors of shelters, rape crisis centers, and prevention programs open and ready to rebuild lives and make communities safer.

Since I have been there, I think it is a very important thing to support. At the time, I did not ask or get any assistance from any agencies, I just got out of town when I got out of the hospital. But, not everyone is fortunate as I, to have family far off to take her in. My hats off to you, Weezie, and to all of the helpers in this critical time in a girl's life. You will never know what a God-send you are. An angel. Everyone should go vote on this. Men, too.......

I often wonder if the bad things outweigh the good these days. Maybe God willing a time will come when justice will be served on the aggressors.
