Murderer!!

You mister murderer! I would like to know what you get from killing women and children?

You make me question why it is so hard for you to just kill yourself when you are obviously the one with the problem. I am not willing to have you go to prison to eat MY money!

How would you feel if someone kill your family or child?

Please have a heart and stop for a minute. Look back on your life and think before you act.

God is watching you!

Dear Mister Abuser…..

Dear Mr. Abuser,

This is your victim speaking so listen and listen good. You took my voice, you took my peace of mind, you took my trust that I had for men away from me. You took my heart and tore it into pieces.

I cried for you to stop but you did not listen to me. You ignored me and I hated myself, I blamed me for what you did to me. I thought that I made this happen to me, I thought I was responsible for all that happened and other persons blamed me too. I felt ashamed but no more will I be broken!

No more will I hold my head down in shame of what YOU did to me! No more will I  take the blame for you. I am taking back my voice and my life. Its time we start stand for our rights and the rights of other children who are being abused and then blamed for the cause of the abuse. They are not be blamed for the abuse nor the perpetrators; how is it that the abuser goes free and blameless thereby removing the voice of the innocently abused?
We will stand for what is what is right. We will no more be silent!

From Me To You

Dear Mr. Abuser,

I have observed your disrespectful behavior for so long recognizing that you are less than human. The damage, the hurt and pain you have inflicted on your wife and kids; and then call yourself a man.You are a monster! A worm… a nobody! Nothing but a common criminal.

How can you call yourself a father and a husband when you kick, box, punch, slap and verbally abuse those whom you say you love?

Your time is up Mr. The law is here to put you where you belong so you can stop being so evil and vile. You are an animal and you need to be caged. I’ve contacted CDA because you have violated the fundamental human rights of others. Yet still here you are free and at play. You have violated their rights to be happy but now you are going to pay!
Yours Truly,

To Whom It May Concern

To Whom It May Concern

I am writing this letter to say that our children need special attention both at home and at school. The reality is that some parents or guardians are not looking about them and caring for them the way they are supposed to.

Children have rights to proper supervision, care and healthy lifestyle; as well as social welfare and religious well-being.

Our country Jamaica is blessed with so many positive people so let us work together to save our children.

Yours Truly,
A Concerned Citizen.

A Letter To My Abuser

Dear Ricky,

I hope you are well and good in health too. I just want to say that I want you to stop abusing women the way you did to me and to change your wicked and evil ways. The way you act at times makes me question if you are a human being with a working heart. When you hit me then dragged me through the dirt I came to the conclusion that you are not human! But I do believe something good can come from you if you just ask the Lord to change you.

I honestly think you need counselling and you need to learn how to treat the woman you are with in a good and respectable way. Always be reminded that you have a mother and sisters. Before you hit a woman or say anything bad to or about her, ask yourself “how would ‘I’ feel if they were getting abuse from a man? What would ‘I’ do?”

Please start treating women with respect  and show them love. The rest is up to you, believe in yourself! If you do not change the bad treatment you give women you will end up in jail! And that is where you will belong then. You need to end all forms of violence against women and stop saying that you have a heart until you start acting like you do only then will good come from you.

Be a real BIG MAN! And remember that God still loves you. Ask him for help.
Sincerely,
One of Your Victims.

My Positive Partner

I always speculated that being involved with someone who’s HIV positive will be like an end of the world for me. To think of it, I was ignorant and blindly uneducated of the fact there is life after being aware of a positive status.

My partner is HIV positive and there have never been a point in my subconscious on which it seems like I should give up on her or us. When she disclosed to me before our intimacy, I appreciated her more as she has given me a choice to stay with her or leave; I respected her more and took the time out to be sensitized as to the facts and myths surrounding HIV. What stood out to me was that my spouse was and is loaded with a wealth of information about HIV and that motivated me as to her being informative and demonstrated good self-care.

Life is a gift and being HIV positive is not a death sentence! Being fully aware of HIV is a lid opener. Sometime it’s better to look over the mountain top than to stare at its lowest perspective, “Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth” ST. Matthew 5:5. My spouse has demonstrated that living with HIV doesn’t mean to overshadow one’s self with negativity, one should remain in a positive frame of mind. I have no regrets accepting my spouse with her positive status, I’m happier and less arrogant or irascible than before. Knowing that my partner is HIV positive has given me the motivation to work harder and the will power to push to the fullest of my abilities as she doesn’t allow her positive status to hinder her from being a nation builder or living to her fullest potential.

Don’t sit feeling sorry for yourself or depressed due to your positive status that can be controlled and maintained medically (medication adherence). Live and love life while being positive, have a positive mind-set each day, live every day, every present moment to the fullest.

It might sound uncanny to some and most probably will be perplexed thinking I’m crazy to be involved with a HIV positive partner but after all, her status doesn’t defines her or the beauty she possess inside. Out with the old in with the new, tolerance, awareness and knowledge allows room for less stigma and discrimination. My partner gave me a choice, her honesty and wealth of knowledge about HIV gave me hope and a different mind-set about positive individuals. Live your life and shine brighter than before!

INSPIRED

It just hit me of how low I was some few months ago, I was so uncomfortable with where I was and had no clear picture of where I was going. In that discomfort I analyzed my life and what was up. Money issues, broken promises and missed expectations.

I kept a list of what I wanted, how I wanted it and would look at it from time to time. I just began with what I could offer. I thank heaven’s for one person who still believed in me when everyone else had lost faith.  

Today I am not where I was late last year, I joined groups on Facebook (CYWAG), tried this and that, here and there, as I aimed high and the stars kept aligning in my favor to this minute I am hoping you will be inspired.

What do you have in your hands now? what can you offer? start there! So much information is out there only if you want it and expecting it. Make that list and as you look at it, things will become clearer as you think of it, people will enter your life and hold your hands.

If it’s a rocky time, rejoice and rewrite your life, then see the magic happen. Be sad, irritable, try new things, fail, win then fail, cry, lose hope, wonder when and why. Then RISE slowly  and remind yourself of those little wins, they hold you up when you slide.

With time, it will all fall back in place. I promise, just don’t stay down there, don’t copy, listen to what’s inside you, you got this!
