(We will be adding your videos, poems, works of art...anything that enables you to 'Break Your Silence')
Heather Walker, Owner of MODEL101 (Models with Armor) has reluctantly decided to share her story of Domestic Violence. Spending most of her life in front of the camera, and knowing that a picture can hold a thousand false words, ideals and emotions. She had made a video completely compiled of WORDS from her abuser, with a few interjections from herself, in order to give explanations, to the nonsense that has been violating her mind, body, soul and her family, over the passed four years. The physical violence has healed, but the words tend to linger and form a different kind of wound. It leaves scars, where your confidence once was, fear where you once had none. Will he, or won't he? Who will I be dealing with today? At this point, I say NO MORE! His allies may watch in disbelief, because these people keep their true selves under a radar, blanketed in happy pictures, snippets of the "good times"...when in reality the beast is never that far behind. And it doesn't take much to let it loose. I expect retaliation, we all do. But that's the fear holding us back. It's the control they know they still have over us. But again, I say, "NO MORE!" I am not perfect and I assume that those of you reading this are also not perfect. Some of us are not as strong, some have been hurt, violated, damaged goods...which can make you a perfect target for these types of people. No one deserves to be belittled, broken down, beat down, whether physically or emotionally. Say it with me, "NO MORE!" We have to speak up. We have to tell. Why let such a big secret hold you down? BREAK THE SILENCE | BREAK THE CYCLE...If you or someone you know needs help, please contact your local Domestic Violence Hotline, or call the police.
