Hey guys, so i normally don’t post things like this but my family is dealing with some serious problems right now.

my baby cousin Everett is fighting for his life in the ICU right now because of his horrible excuse for a mother 

he was barely 4 months old and had already received a broken arm, broken ribs, shaken baby syndrome, and then his mother raised him up above her head and slammed him into the wood floor causing a SEVERE brain injury. 
the doctors found new blood on top of old blood on his brain. god only knows what else this monster did to this child.

There has been a facebook page set up for moral support and status updates about Everett’s condition HERE 

my family was originally just accepting money orders/checks and selling t shirts and wristbands to local friends and supporters but it isnt enough.

Left: Catalina Clouser - Got high, drove for 12 miles with her 2 month old baby on the roof of her car before realizing her child was not in the vehicle.

TW for CSA, child abuse

“The calls for TLC to cancel 19 Kids and Counting are growing louder, but child sexual abuse is bigger than the #Duggars. Victims deserve support. Children deserve prevention.

Join the Ms. Foundation to ask TLC (TV network) to partner with child sexual abuse prevention advocates in creating a public campaign that will shine a light on this critical issue, creating an environment where victims’ voices will be heard and where individuals will feel empowered to prevent abuse. 

#CancelTheDuggars #NoDuggarSpinoff  #Duggar  #ChildAbuse

Recovering from abuse is so hard.
Right now I’m going through the stage of anger and it’s awful.
I want to hurt my family just like they did to me but I don’t want to hurt anyone..
I’m supposed to love them but how do you love someone who did you wrong and never took the blame?
How do I confort my younger self?
I know this is temporary and necessary but it’s not easy.
County attorney says he will prosecute Shanesha Taylor for felonies

[For more on social justice, follow me on Instagram: soulrevision]

Despite public outcry, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery said Wednesday he will move forward with the felony child abuse prosecution of Shanesha Taylor, the jobless mom whose Scottsdale arrest has drawn national attention and prompted calls for Taylor to receive assistance rather than punishment. 

Attorney Bill Montgomery’s office received a petition on Tuesday with 12,000 signatures asking for Shanesha’s charges to be dropped. “First, they weren’t signatures; they were just a list of names,” Montgomery said, referring to a printout from the website. “So I don’t know whether any of the individuals in their pajamas who logged on to the site and put their name on there really had a clue of all the circumstances involved in this particular case.

Apparently signatures aren’t good enough, let’s call County Attorney Bill Montgomery’s office & tell him to drop the charges against Shanesha Taylor —> (602) 506-3411

Child describes details of torture and mistreatment during his arrest
> Boy, 14, told reporters he was stripped, spit on and beaten by Israeli soldiers during 24-hour interrogation.

By Middle East Monitor

Rashid Al-Rashq, a 14 year-old Palestinian boy, has revealed that Israeli forces tortured and mistreated him, including stripping him of his clothes, after he was imprisoned for two months based on the accusation that he allegedly threw stones.

Al-Rashq, who is from the Old City in Jerusalem, told Quds News Agency that the Israeli police arrested him in the Old City and took him to the Qishleh police headquarters near the Jaffa Gate to investigate him without the presence of his father.

The young boy described how Israeli forces beat him and the investigators stripped him of his clothes during the investigation, forcing him to sit on a small chair.

Al-Rashq recounted how during the first seven days he was questioned 24 hours a day, while his hands were tied behind his back.

The police suspected him of throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at Israeli settlers and police units in occupied Jerusalem, and when he insisted that he did not throw any stones, the investigators would beat him, slapping him and spitting in his face.

Rejection in any form is an horrendous feeling especially for a child sexual abuse survivor. You feel as though they can see right through you, they can see that you have been abused, they can see that you are hard work, they can see that what you have done is gross (my own irrational thoughts). Why would they want anything to do with you. You can put on that mask but they see through you. I see you for who you are - a child that has been sexually abused. Why would they want to be involved with that. These are my irrational thoughts right now. When actually I experience rejection like every other human being on this planet. So why does the pain feel so raw?

And finally, the sixth image refers to obesity, blaming the big fast food companies.
The new series produced by Cuban artist Erik Ravelo was titled as "The untouchables”, are photographs of children crucified for his supposed oppressors, each for a different reason and a clear message, seeks to reaffirm the right of children to be protected and report abuse suffered by them especially in countries such as Brazil, Syria, Thailand, United States and Japan"

Hi, i'm looking for a fic where Dan and Phil were pen pals and then one day Dan got really sick and had to go to hospital. I'm pretty sure the word 'love' was in the title. Sorry for the rubbish description, I read it a while ago.

Love Makes Anything Possible - Dan and Phil are pen pals in primary school. They are able to send each other gifts and letters through the schools. One day, Phil receives a package from Dan and a letter explaining that Dan was in the hospital and might not survive.

Welcome to Frozen Hell I will be your guide.

Father’s Day.
We all have seen the posts swarming through out social media.
“Happy Father’s Day to the best dad ever!”
Some more detailed then that.
We’ve also seen the Father’s Day posts addressing peoples mothers who were single parents.
The most typical… The dead beat dad.
Well I’m here to say… Father’s Day is not just difficult for kids with dead best fathers.
In fact some kids would have much rather had a dead beat dad. Perhaps then they could fantasize about what a real father they could have had.
Some peoples “dad’s” should have never been in their life. Some stuck around to make their child’s life a living hell.
Some were abused.
Some are STILL being abused.
Life isn’t black and white.
It’s not just
“Be grateful to have your dad in your life mine was a dead beat.”
“Be grateful because mine died.”
Just stop.
Abusers come in all shapes and sizes… And sometimes it would be better if their dad wasn’t around. Even dead. Because then you’d have more of a “valid” reason to be miserable on “Father’s Day.”

The messages you received from your family or your childhood experiences may have caused you to believe that assertiveness is unacceptable or even dangerous. Practice saying the following: I have the right to be treated with respect by others. I have the right to express my feelings and opinions. I have the right to say no without feeling guilty. I have the right to ask for what I want. I have the right to make my own mistakes. I have the right to pursue happiness. - Beverly Engel, Nice Girl Sydrome #childabuse #survivors #healing

“The truth about our childhood is stored up in our body, and although we can repress it, we can never alter it. Our intellect can be deceived, our feelings manipulated, our perceptions confused, and our body tricked with medication. But someday the body will present its bill, for it is as incorruptible as a child who, still whole in spirit, will accept no compromises or excuses, and it will not stop tormenting us until we stop evading the truth.”
