I am not a felon.

I was stunned after I’d read this post. Most of us (if you’re alive) have been falsely accused, but nothing like this.

This is one of the most powerful stories I’ve read in a long time.

They say someone is innocent until proven guilty but we all know that is rarely true. People are judged and lives are broken apart with no consequences for those who accuse (and often lie).

The bravery to share this and the bravery and character to go on proved that she is a true warrior.

An open letter to the Targets

Powerful words from a young blogger. A must read if you are a teen or live with one. 


Dear self-conscious, maligned, beaten down, broken whoever you are,Chances are that you don’t really want to talk to me or read these words and know that I am addressing you. But I am.
