What Fresh Hell Is This?

One more thing

When writing this post about Ka'Sandra Wade, I specifically did not want to get too political, but it is impossible for me not to think about her murder and the friends I know who knew her without remembering that her death occurred during at time when Congress has let the Violence Against Women Act expire and when the NRA's answer to gun violence is MORE GUNS.

I'm eternally grateful that when women that I have known have suffered from domestic abuse, there wasn't also a gun in the house...

Maria, I am so glad for that, too. My ex-partner was abusive and although he had knives and scissors, guns were not in our house. Thank God.

Glad you survived!
