Shattering the Silence of Sexual Violence
As usual, when I just feel too overwhelmed with my personal healing issues to even make written sense of it, I like to at least put up a post that raises awareness. So, this post is dedicated to SAAM.
Since I'm from Chicago, this SAAM project caught my eye: It's the "Art of Awareness: Shattering the Silence of Sexual Violence" event organized by the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation (CAASE). There will be a film festival, art, poetry and music at various downtown Chicago locations April 13th through the 15th. Info is at www.caase.org. CAASE is also involved in a community art project that introduces a new spin on the awareness bracelet--it's called The Binding Project. Info is at www.bindingproject.com.
At least I'll have this up, if I don't get around to organizing an edition of The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse this month. I've got a host lined up for May, so it will eventually hit the road again. Anybody out there feel up to squeezing in a host on your blog for April?
Wanda: I pray for strength for us both...as well as all survivors.
Hope all is well. Sorry I've been away for ages...found it hard to read other people's blogs as I've been suffering from PND. All that time avoiding anti-deps and coping with depression because of the abuse and abortion, only to be struck down with hormones. Anti-deps have saved me this time.
Sorry you are going through such a long onion layer shedding process.
Thanx for sharing and caring.
Solace, Love & Healing Hugs, S
Em: Thanks for the hugs. It's great to see you, too. I'm so sorry to hear about the hormone-induced depression. I am SO thankful I didn't go thrugh that. My son had "colic" for seven months--I don't think I would have survived both. I'll hop over to your blog and see all that you've been up to.
If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.
a couple sources to get you started on the renurturing, thriver! email me any time
I am new here...I will be waiting for your Blog carnival against child abuse...
You are doing a great job and led/letting others know about SAAM. Keep the good work...as this is my first comment I wanted to say hi..
Self Help Zone
It is late in April, but if you so desire, I would be happy to host a carnival.
Although I have been somewhat blunt on your comments page, I still think of you....I am still concerned for you, despite my own personal opinions.
