at the end of today’s youth workshop to raise awareness about abuse, i gave stars to all the young men and women, asking them to write a positive word on one side (peace, love, hope, etc.). on the other side they were to write a message to the 14 women who were killed on December 6th, 1989 (the women who this day is in honor of). this is what one young man wrote:
“you were treated brutally and unfair on the behalf of all men we apologize please forgive.”
the future will be brighter than we think.

yesterday’s Abuse: Survival Stories event seamlessly brought together people from all walks of life. look at these two angels. thank you to my sister Denyce for the picture, and thank you to all who made the day such a special and powerful one! so many people asked to share their stories of abuse at our next event. amazing!

#selflove is a beautiful thing, one that many of us have had to work very hard to learn. i applaud this man for finding a way to nurture himself, and for adding positivity to this world. see more at 500randomactsofbeauty.tumblr.com #wmam2013 #redefiningmasculinity #whiteboard #streetinterviews #whiteribbon #whatmakesaman
