What you don’t know CAN hurt you!

Have you ever heard of the saying, “What you don’t know can’t hurt you?”  Well, this couldn’t be further from the truth.  If you find yourself in an abusive situation or any situation that violates your personal space, seek shelter and assistance.  As a former foster child, resources were not made available to me nor did I know they existed.   What you don’t know, CAN hurt you!  If you live in the United States, there are 24 hour shelters, counselors, free food, medical assistance, and more.  If you live in a country outside of the United States, contact your local law enforcement agency or human services department.  Your life has value and you have rights!  Don’t spend one more day giving anyone power to take something that doesn’t belong to them.  Take your life back!  Embrace hope and peace of mind!

Giving Back

As a former foster child, I identify with the many challenges that youth face overcoming obstacles related to parental loss, abandonment, self-esteem, and more.  To that end, I’m thankful to have had a foster mother that cared enough to help me get through it.  Today, I give back to youth through mentoring, motivational speaking, and book “giveaways.”  Please visit my Amazon author page for more details on Black Butterfly Books.
