Month: October 2015

New Month, New Season

Goodbye September

stop-the-violence

Most people recognize October as being the month that kicks off fall. People are sliding on comfy sweaters, eating warm soup, admiring a crackling fire, and of course watching football.

However, since 1981, October stands for something much more than that. October now represents, DVAM (Domestic Violence Awareness Month.) It’s a topic that is very sensitive in nature, but needs to be discussed. I abhorrently despise violence, whether it be against women, children, men, or even animals. Thus, I’ll be wearing purple this month, to display my support.

Below is a song written by Stephen Garrett, better known as Static for Aaliyah’s final studio recording, and produced by Budd’ha. The song is entitled, “Never No More.”This song actually was a bit of inspiration behind the relationship of Boss and Lyndsey in my novel, Every Woman Deserves an Accessory. It was a risk writing about that stuff, but hopefully someone can learn something from that and avoid going down that route.
