What would people think?
Then she stayed because of her faith. She loved God. She wanted to do the right thing. She wanted her family together.
What would God think?
He hit her once. After that, he demeaned her, made her feel small, small, small. Told her she was stupid.
She started to believe it.
She didn’t think she could make it on her own. After all, she was only a housewife, a mother, and stupid.
To me, she was Everything.
She stayed because she felt sorry for him, felt responsible for his actions, and saddened about leaving a broken man.
She stayed for 30 long long long years.
When she finally decided to leave, he begged, he pleaded, he cried. He said that he couldn’t live without her, couldn’t survive without her. He said she was his only friend.
In her journal she wrote this:
“I have nothing else to give him. He will not leave me alone. I feel sorry for him. So very sorry. He continually crushes my spirit. Help me. Help me. Help me.”
On May 26, 2010, the monster walked up behind her and shot her three times in the head. Not once, but three times to make damn sure. He then wrapped his arms around her and shot himself.
He was Never a man.
Here’s what she would say to all of you in the same predicament.
Get out. Don’t wait another minute. Stand up now, grab your kids, and find shelter.
You are not his therapist, his slave, or his doormat.
You are so much more. You are Everything. You are unbelievably capable. You are beautiful beyond belief.
Make the right decision now. You cannot wait. The cage is opened. Do not remain inside as I did.
