There is a time to step out and seek a new way to survive, all of the past hurts and bruises you have suffered at the hands of your abuser.
There is a time to say enough is enough.
There is a time, to say to the screwed up system, that their “good old boys club” privileged behaviors will not be tolerated any longer and there needs to be justice for all, and accountability for all judges, attorneys and court officials, who cross the line and don’t adhere to the law, but only to their pocketbooks. They protect abusers, but not victims/survivors.
As a millennial African American woman, I have seen my mother survive this and now, I am dealing with my own survival story as well. I have seen the trauma it causes, and have felt it myself.
I applaud the bravery of all survivors. We are strong.
