Put Light into the World

by BMW Princess

Sometimes it seems like bad people get away with everything. Sometimes it seems like their darkness is choking out the light. I believe there are some people who are afraid of light. If people are doing good the bad person's badness dosn't stand out as much. That's why I do good. I write a poem. I cheer someone up. I belong (on facebook) to RAINN an organization that helps rape victims and an organization that protects disabled people.


Put light into the world. Then it won't be so dark.

A Very Special Song

by BMW Princess
(Canada)

Today I was listening to If Everyone Cared by Nickelback. It is a beautiful song. It's about peace and everyone getting along. More people should listen to the song. It seems like many people can't get the message. If more people stopped hurting people FOR FUN I wouldn't have all this crappy trauma baggage to work through. The message is simple. If everyone cared nobody would die. I think some people have a wall around them. They can't get the song. Bad people can intellectualize concepts like love and empathy but don't feel them. They just objectify the song. It's sad. Very sad. I've never felt sorry for people like that before.
Thank you Chad Kroger for such a beautiful song and message.

Child Abuse and Child Beauty Pageants

by BMW Princess
(Canada)

I wonder if child beauty pagents are emotionally abusive. I can understand a little girl participating in one beauty pagent but I don't think they should participate in lots. I'v seen comercials for shows like Todders and Tiaras and Little Miss Perfect.
Isn't it emotionally abusive to dress these human children up like dolls and insit they preform? I also heard one mother say of her little girl in a pagent, "She better not embarass me" All I thought was YOU! IT'S ABOUT YOU? I was pretty mad. How many of these girls will develop anorexia or bulima? How many of these girls will feel like than can never mesure up. Also pedophiles can be watching.

Help Can Come From the Strangest Places

by BMW Princess
(Canada)

Help can come from anywhere. It can come from the simplest places. I know. About a month ago a local businessman was kidnapped. I watched an interview with him on the news. He made a really good quote. And then a Nothing Touches Me smile. I still remember that quote. I wonder if the businessman knows how much that quote helped me. That somebody who's been to Hell and back can help another person who's been to a different kind of Hell. Was that too dramatic Everyone has been through their own Hell. And if anything can bring you out use it Excluding drugs. That just creates more problems. I don't want to use the guy's name but I want to ESP him a big thank you. I'm slowly recovering. I hope this wasn't to dramatic.

Child Abuse - Judge Beating Video

by BMW Princess
(Canada)

I just watched the judge beating video on youtube. I'm glad he got caught. He won't be charged because of the statute of limitations (Ugh) but I'm sure he was profoundly humiliated. The whole world can see his shame now. Like any psychopath he blamed his daughter. That poor girl. She has cerebral palsy. Anybody who does that to a child has to be evil.

Child Abuse Commentary - My Hero

by BMW Princess
(Canada)

I recently actually talked about what happened to me.
It may not seem like a big thing but compared to where i was 3 years ago it is great. I got help from a very special woman who is not even in Canada. My hero did not go through abuse Her name is Debra Morarity. She is a bio professor at university of Alabama at Huntsville. In 2010 there was a school shooting at UAH. Ms. Morarity grabbed the shooters legs to try and stop her. She was shot at but the gun did not fire. I had a dream about that shooting. Something said Google it! Like a command. I learned several weeks ago that the shooter's trial was on. Ms Moraity gave me me the strength b/c she could get up on that stand and tell 12 people what happened. I could tell one. And of course the shooter was in the courtroom. I don't have to see my abuser anymore. Thank you Ms. Morarity my alabama angel <3
