Know Your Deaf Rights

I have to say that I am incredibly excited for this workshop to happen tomorrow. I am looking forward to meeting Talila Lewis, HEARD Founder and learning from this workshop. I have been perusing the HEARD website and strongly moved to be a part of what they do for awhile now. I have also been praying for some type of office to open in this small town that will help the Deaf and HOH (Hard of Hearing). The closest agency has been nearly an hour drive until very recently.

The Agency for Deaf Advocacy and Services is here and I am excited!! They are holding their first workshop tomorrow and HEARD is going to be there!! ~ INFO BELOW~ I look forward to the lives they will touch and be able to assist within the community and I want to be a part of that in some way as God leads.

Helping Educate To Advance the Rights of the Deaf

#SeeSomethingSaySomething

How many times have you seen something happen and discover that you are questioning whether you should make a call or help stop a person from being harmed, raped or a child from being abused?

 

Your final decision… was to do nothing.

 

1: Why would a person stand by and do nothing while a crime was being committed, especially, especially when harm when coming to someone, a child perhaps? What if this were your loved one, your child?

2: Was it because they were a part of orchestrating this violent act? What a frightening thought to have, most especially if you are the victim/survivor.

 

I URGE YOU ALL: #IfYouSeeSomethingSaySomething LR xo

Advocate/Activist/Author/Actor and Survivor Lee Roberts

As an advocate people tend to forget there is more to us than meets the eye. We are husbands, wives, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, sisters and brothers. Although advocacy is never ending, at the end of the day, we too go home to our loved ones.

After a decade of working with some of the top influential advocates in the country, we proposed the question,

“What is something in your life people would not really know?”

The goal was to unmask each advocate, as an individual, in a personal light with their family, friends and loved ones; allowing the public to see for the first time the individual behind the mask of an advocate.

These raw and unedited poems, short stories, thoughts and letters of beautifully penned stories of hope, loss, pain, healing, inspiration, love, sorrow, courage and strength illuminate the unexpected twists and turns of life’s hurdles that later become known as our blessings.

Now, join us and share the personal stories and discover the extraordinary lives of the men and women who protect and serve our most precious.

ALL proceeds go to abused children and homeless organizations.

Featured Writers include;

Patricia McKnight, Donna Kshir, Lee Roberts, Deana Dixon, Mark Palmer, Patrick Dati, Joshua Murphy, Mike Pistorino, Jane Alvarez, Mashanna Bachuss-Waggoner, Terry Rink, Sharon Young, Warren Van Gaasbeck, Star Myers, Bob Shank,, Isabelle Esling and Pastor Darick Biondi.

Chicago advocate, public speaker and survivor Patrick Dati.

 

The goal was to unmask some of the most prominent advocates from around the globe, as an individual, in a personal light with their family, friends and loved ones behind closed doors; allowing the public to see for the first time the individual behind the mask of an advocate.

Roberts’ hand selected two of Kshir’s works. The first piece will capture you heart as she pens the importance of keeping one’s faith in God. The second piece says goodbye to a decade old friendship. In Roberts’ words “Donna’s heartfelt words will leave you breathless.”

The cover features Chicago advocate, public speaker and survivor Patrick Dati. As a child, Dati was bullied by his older brothers and raped at 9 years old by serial killer John Wayne Gacy.

Both women spoke highly of Dati. ‘It takes courage to stand up and be who you are, to be true to oneself. Patrick is not only a survivor, but an incredible inspiration to all male survivors across the globe. We are honored to choose Patrick for this special gold edition cover of UnMasked. We are also blessed to call him our friend.”

The collection includes raw and unedited poems, personal stories, thoughts and letters of beautifully penned stories of hope, loss, pain, healing, inspiration, love, sorrow, courage and strength to discover the extraordinary lives of the men and women who protect and serve our most precious; our children.

‘UnMasked’ is available in paperback and eBook formats at Walmart, Kmart, Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, Lulu.com and other fine brick and mortar stores.  ALL proceeds are being donated to abused children and homeless organizations. For more information, visit, Northern Books Online Bookstore!!

 

Biker Names

If you fuck with family, or any innocents, then make no mistake.I Will Shred You!! That is a fact plain and simple. Mama cougar will come out with claws and teeth bared. You will be history…So there you have it.

What is Your biker name and the story behind it. Leave me a message in the comments.

Pain…is a pain

It is just after2 am here and I am still up though headed to bed after this posting. I have been dealing with pain deep in my bones from Fibromyalgia, wicked migraines and my high blood pressure issues. The BP issues have been contained and back to normal.  I am finally in the postdrome of the Migraine…aka the fuzzies…Now, the Fibro has to settle in for a long winter nap…if only lol.

 

Update on Lakota’s journey…

Lakota is sleeping more, as expected. . He is weaker, not wanting to really eat much anymore. He has been going to the bathroom (pooping) it seems nearly non stop when he isn’t resting. I know that is wearing him out too bless his heart. Me, I am so far beyond exhausted and hanging on by a thread here.
I am right behind him cleaning up and mopping. When he goes he is losing more blood in his stool. I have to follow him when he gets up to go to make sure he doesn’t eat it…he has reverted to primal instinct here the past week with that…I know that his time is coming very near.  I know that Otis knows too and he whines looking at Lakota then to me and back to Lakota. An appointment is set for this Friday, September 2, 2016 with our vet where I will have the honor of escorting my precious Lakota to the Rainbow Bridge where Maximillian, Cougar 7 toes, Boo-Boo, Eskimo and other special friends await him.
If you can assist us with the funds for this journey it would be tremendously appreciated. You can also donate directly to Lakota’s account with Dr. Donald Pyle at the Animal Health Center here in Crestview, FL.  
Thank you all so very much for your ongoing prayers, donations, shares and love for my precious loving boy ❤
