I rise up for women survivors of domestic violence who are spiritually, financially, emotionally, physically and culturally abused. I stand for women like myself who are desperate, isolated and living with chronic trauma and fear. I pray for these brave women , that they may find hope in the midst of desperation. I stand for those women who, like myself, had contemplated suicide as their only solution to horrible abuse. No woman, no child, should be faced with such anguish. Every woman and child deserves hope and an opportunity to live independently. Every woman ought to be able to live without concern over how she will survive financially and how she will support her children. I’m.a survivor. I stand for all survivors and those searching for their freedom. God be with them.
