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!

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).
