Non-Consensual Tracking

 

Information from the Confidential Address Program – if you are a victim of stalking, check your own state for that program, it is a very powerful resource.

Non-consensual tracking (NCT) is “the monitoring of a person’s location without their consent.” 

The increase in personal tracking devices (e.g., Airtags, Tiles, etc.) may increase NCT risks for victims of stalking and other crimes. An online token from EndTAB.org provides information about NCT and ways to prevent it. You can find it at:

There is a TED talk about stalker-ware with tips to protect yourself. You can find it at:

Survivor-Made Safety Jewelry

I know the feeling of being watched, and not knowing when, or if, your stalker will jump out and attack. You become hyper-vigilant and frightened at the slightest noise or suspicious act.

Let me know what you think.

Happy Heavenly Birthday Morgan – we all love & miss you so very much!

 

 

Morgan – I woke up this morning thinking about you. Of course I did, today would have been your 30th birthday. My heart feels like it is being crushed – what I wouldn’t give to be able to have you here with us, so we could celebrate you.

I love you so much!

Exactly 10 years ago today, you turned 20 – that was the last birthday we were able to spend with you. Your life was cut short just a few months later, on December 2, 2011.

Today your dad and I have lit candles for you – they are burning brightly. I am making the same cake and icing you always used to make when your friends would come over to our house. At sunset we are planning to go out to the pier, with a dozen red roses, and tell you our 12 birthday wishes for you, as we drop each rose into the ocean.

It is so very hard to explain to others what this journey without you has been like. Unless you are a parent who has lost a child, to a violent crime, it would be impossible to understand. Someone once said, “A million words would not bring you back, I know because I’ve tried. Neither would a million tears, I know because I’ve cried.” I have done the same.

I miss you every hour of every day, and on special days like your birthday, the reality of you missing from our lives is even harder to deal with.  Sometimes the heaviness on my heart makes it a struggle to just breathe…when you died, a part of me died too, and life was never the same again.

All the memories of you make me smile, they are not the ones that cause my pain, my pain is caused by the thought of new memories being made without you…this hurts the most!

I just want you to know, even though I am pretty sure you already do, that you are the most precious gift I was ever given. I cherish every single moment I was blessed to be with you. I miss your sweet laughter, serious insight, loving gestures, and most of all, the squeeze of your hand in mine, to let me know you love me. Sometimes when I am extra sad, I can almost feel you squeeze my hand again.

I hope you are dancing and celebrating your birthday in heaven with all the other angels…the day you were born you brought so much light into this world, and I am pretty sure the angels were dancing and celebrating on that day as well. I love you my little dragonfly baby…till we meet again. 

 

Remember…Power Is In Your Spirit – Embrace That Power

Many times, when you are a victim of a stalker, you feel powerless.

I saw this painted on a wall in an alley over this past weekend and wanted to share it with all of you. I believe that power is in our spirit and we can embrace that power to get us through our toughest days. Don’t give up – fight back. Your life is your life and not someone else’s to take. Keep yourself safe, contact the authorities, tell others what is happening so you have allies. Keep a detailed timeline about any and all stalking incidences, call law enforcement to report every single incident of stalking.

Never give up! Build a case against your stalker/stalkers and take them off the street.

Fight as though your life depends on it – Morgan’s did.

Good luck warriors…you can do this!
