Human Trafficking is a non-partisan human issue..with or without a wall.
The Blue Magazine
Freedom from violation for me meant more than a movement. As a human trafficking survivor, I wholeheartedly embrace strategic measures which curtail the free-for-all criminal predators who exploit and profit from illicit and depraved acts against humanity have had in this nation. It has been my mission through the founding of Beulah’s Place to rescue victims of human trafficking as well as those who have been abandoned and abused in other perverse ways.
As a human trafficking survivor, I wanted the opportunity to heal, to succeed on my own terms and to prosecute fully, if possible, my predators, and to not be classified as needing special rights and funding. Like every other U.S. citizen, I was born with certain unalienable rights. At least I thought so. I have never looked for any person or organization to give me something I didn’t earn or work for, to include me in any political agenda, to hide lack of responsibility under the guise of “because you’re a victim you deserve everything handed to you,” and I chose to make my corner of the world – albeit small – a better community at large.

Today, is the best day to make the change and become whoever you want to be. Be the entrepreneur, your time is now. There are so many opportunities now to make the Superwoman cape your reality. Walk alongside the next woman you meet and say, “I can do this too, I have what it takes to make a difference in my community. I can invest in many ways and one of the biggest contributions I can make to our society is supporting other female entrepreneurs, who also could be that veteran caregiver and veteran spouse.”
I would love to tell my younger self…it’s okay to make mistakes, it’s okay to fail, because you do have to get back up. No one else will help you get up, except for you. Staying down isn’t an option. Resilience, renewal, rebuilding are three themes in my life — for which I am thankful. Showing grace to yourself is loving yourself and ultimately accepting the love of God in your life so you can continue on to what is ultimately in store on this journey we call life. LIVE IT!
