Happy to read you wrote about domestic violence regarding police officers.  this is not a new topic for me.  Knew about it in the 1970's.  Back then, in a 10 man detachment, 8 admitted to striking their wives, one said no, one said, not your business.  My school friend left her husband.  She said the 3 days I was visiting were the 3 best days of her marriage.  She knew he wouldn't hit here.  I asked her later why didn't you tell me.  I would never have left you there.  She responded he would never have let her go.  She just didn't go back after he worked a shift in Vancouver.  Her home was in a small northern town.  
Back in the 1970s I remember reading an article which said the occupation with the highest rate of domestic violence was police.  Certainly us old feminists knew about it then.
at the time the rationale was police were basically in total control on the job.  then they came they were confronted with a person who said NO.  they couldn't handle it and they struck back.  There were no repurcussions.  and there really wasn't any such thing as divorce in the RCMP back in the day.  
I do not see an end to this problem for some time.  Poulson needs to go as do the top 3 layers of management.  
so take care, Elizabeth
 
 
Renee has in the past and continues to this day, to support and respect veterans, I have the utmost respect for her and for what she does. Anyone that puts her down or insults her obviously does not know her. The patches she sent to us where given to us at her cost, she made no profit on us and we sold them and continue to sell them, with the money going to whatever we want it too. As for Military Minds, well respect is a two way street, and looking at what was said in the little post by them, it is evident that is not the case. However we all know that things can be posted that may not have been done by those it is attributed to, I hope this is the case this time. We in the military fought and served so people could have the freedom to do what they wish. If military minds wishes to smear Renee then so be it, that is their choice, however they should think long and hard about how Renee could help them, but unfortunately it is so hard to rebuild bridges after they are destroyed. - Smoky
 

Betty's answer: Thanks Smoky - I am doing my best to see the brokenness in this person who is working so hard to discredit me, he's calling dealerships and asking questions, they are calling me.

It's hard to understand but I am doing my best. - Betty

In response to "Overcoming Writers Block, Anger & Fear - Stong Motivators"

Sometimes you just need to sit and breathe and ignore everything that's going on in the world and just listen to yourself breathing. Ignore everything else and eat a peanut butter sandwich. (That last one isn't actually recommended by doctors but sometimes, for me, it feels so good).
