For Emily. You are not Alone.

*Trigger Warning: Attack/Violence/Rape/Abuse is all mentioned in this video*

I am sure that the majority of ya’ll have heard about the Stanford rapist and his sentencing.

Sentencing in this case is the loosest term possible.

My feelings regarding this matter are still raw, but I felt the need to do something when I heard this news. Anything to show my stance on this subject matter and to let the Brocks in this world know that we will not keep silent. To make sure that they know that this is not okay.

And to let the Emily Doe’s know that we will stand with them.

This is the letter that she read in court to her attacker. This is also the first time that I have read the letter period. I applaud her courage for being able to do this and I hope that she is able to find some peace in having said all of this out loud.

Thank you Emily Doe for sharing your letter with the world.

I sincerely wish you solace and hope that your letter reaches others who are in need of it.

Music has always been a part of me. No matter how many times I would try to pursue a career in something else I would find myself coming right back to it. So now I am done with running scared. I was all in on this journey. And I'm so glad that I saw it through, because it lead me to something that I love. Something that I didn't think was possible - the ability to become a self published author. For years I have written poems, my thoughts, short stories, and songs. Really it was just therapy to me, but now I want to see where else it can take me too. So I'm learning the social media ropes thanks to all these social media outlets. Also working up my nerve to face the networking scene for the artists and musicians in my hometown too. All with the hopes of connect with others who love music as much as I do. And to make some coin by music and write freelancing. Let's see what happens, shall we?
