You know what truly breaks my heart. Women. Not the ones making it easier for men to assault us. But the ones turning away because it hurts so much. Or the ones turning toward because it hurts so much.

Men–notice how many of us have been hurt in this way. (How many of you have been abused as children? Imagine never aging into safety!)

We have been hurting for so long. Ignored. Dismissed. Derided.

It’s not that all men act so criminally.
It’s that we allow them those men to continue.
Particularly with girls.


Late Summer Collection

One of the things that I treasure about blogging is that it’s simple enough to do–even when the kids are home–as evidenced by these posting highlights harvested from each of my blogs this summer.  I hope you  find a title or two that intrigues you. As always, your voice is most welcome.  Read a post, share a comment/connection!
