I remember when news of the snow would bring on the feeling of impending doom. Where would I go? How would I get my fix? Did I even have any gloves? A coat? Where would I find warmth? Shelter? It’s days like today that I am extremely grateful for me life.
And though I am grateful and I truly am, that does not keep me from thinking of and praying for the women still out there. Thoughts and prayers unfortunately aren’t enough on days like today. I’m thinking of the women who will seek Shelter with men they know are not safe. Who will settle and end up hurt for lack of other options. I am thinking of the woman who will do an extra bag to stay warm, the extra bag that just may kill them. I am thinking of the women who get into cars all day and all night for that brief respite from the cold knowing that they are going to have to do things they don’t want to do but also don’t want to freeze to death. So when we talk about choice kindly remember “It’s only a choice if you have choices” Quote by another survivor
We are thinking of you, praying for you, and are going to do everything in our power to open tonight.
