January is the National Stalking Awareness Month

January 2020 marks the sixteenth annual National Stalking Awareness Month (NSAM), an annual call to action to recognize and respond to the serious crime of stalking.

Since 2004, each January is recognizedby the National Center for Victims of Crime as the National Stalking Awareness Month (NSAM), aiming to raise awareness and help individuals and communities across the US identify, prevent and stop this dangerous behavior. Intrusive and harmful, stalking destroys a person’s sense of safety, leaving victims suffering from severe depression, insomnia or anxiety.

Movements like #MeToo and Time’s Up were a great step ahead towards opening up about sexual harassment, rape threats and abuse, in a time when cyberspace abusers use tactics like sextortion, revenge porn and online harassment, or newly-added offenses like swatting (calling a SWAT team to someone’s home) or doxing / doxxing (releasing someone’s private information publicly, with malicious intent).

As our family gets ready to welcome the new year, our intentions are focused on getting an investigation opened into our youngest daughter Morgan’s murder. This is a goal we will never stop working towards.

We “believe” the things we have been waiting for to happen in Morgan’s case will happen in 2020 – so as we enter the new year, we believe with all our hearts, that Morgan and our family will find justice. We will never cease to stop believing that there can be justice in this world – to fail only means we stopped trying…we will NEVER stop trying. #JusticeForMorgan

There are many wonderful warriors in this world, those that are not willing to stand by and ignore injustice – these warriors are not always out in the limelight, but work hard, behind the scenes, to right many wrongs…these are our heroes, and our family thanks them for all their help! 

Take a leap of faith and begin this wondrous new year by believing. Believe in yourself. And believe that there is a loving Source – a Sower of Dreams – just waiting to be asked to help you make your dreams come true.”   Sarah Ban Breathnach
