Yesterday, a thought invaded my consciousness, my childhood!

I could not stand to use a pic of an abused kid, it hits to close to my own trauma, sorry.

I am so lucky this quarantine did not happen when I was a kid.

Being isolated full time with my abusive father was a scary thought.

I felt the fear, then my compassion center opened wide for at risk kids right now.

Most of you have never been experienced helplessness or brutality from a parent.

There is no escape for children.

I give intention while meditating for their safe passage through this trying time.

Now, I am an adult and live with my three grandkids.

I get to see how a loving mother cares for her children, something I had no clue what it looked like or felt like.

It saddens me these kids are being abused now. My quarantine challenges seem insignificant.

My mindfulness practice has taught me others need help more than me ever feeling sorry for myself.

I know what it’s like to be a child, helpless and innocent, being beat and ridiculed, then alcohol increased his violence.

Give intention for these young souls, accept your challenges as offerings to endure, hoping they are safe.

Any opinions?

    What I find difficult as a volunteer for a nonprofit domestic violence support and resource service, is that right now our services are grossly shut down too. At a time when these services are needed so badly!

  2. All we can do is have compassion and awareness if the needs that are going by without support

    As I wrote, glad I am an adult right now

    My heart aches at the thought of kids at risk

    Most think about helping, few take action like you and make a difference

    Kudos for your path Linda
