In a previous post, I encouraged victims to tell their story to someone. Today, I want to share with you about wonderful soul who found the courage to tell her story.
Her name is Patricia McKnight she is an Advocate, Author, Speaker, Blogger, Writer and fellow Survivor/Warrior. Basically she is a renaissance warrior super hero.
Okay, well, that's what I am calling her anyway.
She grew up in a nightmare at the hands of her step father an abusive, child molester and rapist. In her self published book My Justice, Patricia tells about her childhood and how she survived. She shares about her struggles even into adult and the hardships she suffered. I have read her book and found it to be an amazing example of survivor truths. It is never too late to tell, heal and help others.
Patricia is the founder and CEO of a not-for-profit blog talk radio called Butterfly Dreams. "Butterfly Dreams Talk Radio, a community outreach broadcast production of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery." According to their website they help victims, survivors, family and communities dealing with violence, abuse and/or trafficking.
As you can see Ms. McKnight is not only telling her story and truths she is helping others find their voice and get help. I would like to ask fellow survivors who can, to help our friend by sharing on any of our social media outlets the following link. This will help in making Patricia Author Of The Year . Please share this link with the hashtag #Marsocial , each share will help spread the word about Patricia's book, work and give her a vote for this competition. There is not limit to how many times you can share/vote.
Let's make noise and show the world what survivors and warriors are capable of.
Join me in helping others through the work of Patricia McKnight.

Survivors will never forget that first time they told their truth. I remember the first time I called what happened to me rape. I could not even say the word. I am so glad someone heard me and protected me... FINALLY.
If you or someone you know, needs help check out RAINN .
I believe in you. I support and encourage you.
