Are You Aware of Domestic Violence

I saw this while visiting Reina's spot, and had to repost it. The numbers are scary, and are a compelling argument to do your part. I've begun by reposting this. What will you do?

(There are 543 names listed of women & children who have lost their lives to domestic violence. Why aren’t you as pissed as me?)

It’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month. (Obama declared it.) I also know it’s Breast Cancer month, but everyone seems to be acknowledging that. I’d rather discuss the one that’s closer to my heart.

As I stated before, the fight against Domestic Violence is my passion. Outside of my family, friends, & him, nothing is more important. Unfortunately, my bill collectors seem to be passionate about monies owed; therefore, I have to go do some work (this is why I’ve been AWOL for the past 2 weeks), but I did want to stop by and share the following with you.

◦Nearly one in every four women are beaten or raped by a partner during adulthood.
◦1 in 6 women and 1 in 33 men have experienced an attempted or completed rape.
◦Three women are killed by a current or former intimate partner each day in America, on average.
◦Over 22 percent of women and 7.4 percent of men surveyed, reported being physically assaulted by a current or former partner in their lifetime.
◦Approximately 2.3 million people each year in the United States are raped and/or physically assaulted by a current or former spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend. Women who were physically assaulted by an intimate partner averaged 6.9 physical assaults per year by the same partner.
◦Approximately 37% of women seeking injury-related treatment in hospital emergency rooms were there because of injuries inflicted by a current or former spouse/partner.
◦Women are at an increased risk of harm shortly after separation from an abusive partner.
◦Approximately 15.5 million children are exposed to domestic violence every year.
◦Men exposed to physical abuse, sexual abuse, and adult domestic violence as children were almost 4 times more likely than other men to have perpetrated domestic violence as adults, according to a large study.
◦Incest accounts for half of all sexual abuse cases.
◦Children that are exposed to violence are more likely to attempt suicide, abuse drugs and alcohol, run away from home, engage in teenage prostitution, and commit sexual assault crimes.
◦Girls and young women between the ages of 16 and 24 experience the highest rate of intimate partner violence.

I will write another post on this soon, but I didn’t want another day to pass without acknowledging this month and my begging you & you to DO SOMETHING!

DO volunteer at a shelter this month. DO donate. DO serve. DO keep your hands to yourself. DO dial 911. STOP putting it out of your month as if it could never happen to you. You’ll want someone to help you. Just. DO SOMETHING!

Please visit The Domestic Violence Awareness Project for more information. And for men looking to aid, please visit A Call To Men.

Ours is an envionment where evil is perceived to be rewarded while good is punished. As with everything the Gods have a reason for creating this perception::::
People who fall on the good side of the good/evil scale have more favor, and when they do something wrong the Gods punish them BECAUSE THEY WANT THEM TO LEARN. The Gods want them to receive this feedback in hope they make corrections and begin to behave appropriately. The Gods DON'T like evil and refuse to grant this feedback.
EVERYBODY pays for what they do wrong, only evil people must wait until their next life before they will experience the wrath of the Gods, manifested in their reincarnation as a lower form of life into environments with increased/enhanced temptations.
Sadly, this allows the Gods to position this perception of evil rewarded as temptation, one which they use as an EXTREMELY effective corruptor.

Both Africa and the Medittereanean are regions which have sexual issues. This is a sign of morbid disfavor once you understand that females are the God's favored gender. Muhammad's (Mohammed's) polygamy halfway through his life as a prophet was preditory. Now a huge percentage of Muslims believes in male superiority and that the abuse of women is God's will. Female genital mutilation is still practiced in Africa. Black misogyny is the most eggregious example in the recent past.
Black member size is temptation to a predisposed population.
The patriarchal cancer spread throughout Europe because of Christianity, of which the majority of policy makers were Italian men. Expect the largest landowner in Europe and the continent's original superpower also played a major role in African slavery.

Militancy in Africa is consistant with the Iraqi example, as was slavery and the KKK here in America:::Fear enforces proper behavior. Without it we see what happens as a result of gross/morbid disfavor:::::AIDS, crack babies, dead young men in gangland retaliation killings. This is the purpose behind many black's historical tendancy towards resistance.
The same principle was true in Europe and throughout the world for centuries:::People whom lived under iron fists were conditioned to think the right way. As a result they experienced higher numbers of children accend into heaven because they were taught to think and behave appropriately, which they passed on to their children. Our preditory envionment of "freedom" was the primary purpose the Gods had when implimenting this strategy that is the United States, one which they used to spred the cancer of democracy and westernization throughout the world. And the Gods use this tool that is America to prey on the disfavored both at home and abroad:::Much like the ghetto, America in general experiences a heightened level of temptation due to the people's disfavor.

Even the Old Testiment is not to be taken literally, but the Gods do offer clues throughout to help the disfavored:::The apple is a tool of temptation used to corrupt Adam and Eve and cast them out of the Garden of Eden.
There is another lesson to be learned from this passage, and it is quite similar to the vailing issue and the discourse over women's attire which ultimately died in the 70s:::Women are responsible for and control the fate of mankind.

Think about what I say. Consider what I teach. Society is going to become disturbingly ugly as we approach the Apocalypse due to spiralling, runaway disfavor.
I do not know when this will occurr, but it is the God's way to grant some time before they end on Planet Earth.
Make the decision to always be good and never look back. Until you do this technology will employ tactics to test your resolve:::Ridicule, beligerance, doubt and refusal to abandon what people perceive to be their "investment".
Pray daily. Think appropriately. Too many are confident, unaware of the God's awesome powers or their status as antients. Others may fall prey to their positioning.
Be humbled, God-fearing and beware of the God's temptations, for everyone is tested to evaluate their worthiness.
