We’re going to try something different this post. If you have read my prior blogs on domestic violence or are familiar with my website, you may be able to find certain “errors” in this message. Granted, they are intentional. The post will be up for a little more than 48 hours, at which time the correct information will be posted. The person who finds the most errors will be eligible to win an autographed copy of my book, ORANGE BLOSSOM WISHES: Child Molested, Woman Abused―Her Victorious Journey to Freedom. Find them all? First one gets the book.
Here’s how you can win. “Like” the blog post, then go to the far right column, click on “Go to Carolyn’s Website.” Once there, click on “Contact Us” and enter all the errors you found. Be sure you leave me a first name and e-mail address where you can be contacted (Nobody will be added to an e-mail address list! You’re safe.). This will keep everything personal and confidential. I will contact the winner for mailing information as to where to ship the book, and post a name for the winner later this week.
REMEMBER, YOU ONLY HAVE UNTIL MONDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 21 TO GET YOUR ANSWERS IN. SO, HERE WE GO:
Domestic violence is no respecter of persons. It has no regard for what race, gender, nationality or religion you might be. Neither does sexual abuse nor assault. Matter of fact, every two (2) hours in the United States someone is sexually assaulted. If you do not find that astonishing enough, consider the fact that 1 in every 12 women in the nation will, at some time or another, find herself the victim of abuse and/or domestic violence.
We take this seriously. That is why we will be constructing a Victim Support page soon to the website―a place where victims and survivors alike will be able to find links to various agencies and organizations, along with the DV Hotline number.
You can find Carolyn’s story of hope, restoration, faith and healing in her highly acclaimed book, so be sure to check out her book, Orange Blossom Dreams.
You deserve a life free of domestic violence. Jealousy is not love. Domestic violence is usually a sign of anger or inability to keep one’s temper under control. Even though it may be very rare, a threat of pet abuse might be a sign for concern. Silence is one of the greatest enemies of domestic violence. But, before you begin planning to leave, be sure to develop a safety plan. With or without children, it is mandatory. Call an agency and ask for their help, or check the links on the website.
