In Memory of Kay

INDIFFERENCE KILLS


~~~The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”—Elie Wiesel

 

Dear, Readers,  is there a time when you stood back when you should have stood up?   Is there a time when you should have taken action, but you were silent?  I’m sorry to say that I was silent.  I’m so very sorry, Kay.  So fucking sorry.

INDIFFERENCE  KILLS!      SILENCE KILLS.

    Amen, my sister, amen. Because of my past, I am mouthy. I always get involved. Sometimes got in trouble for it. Sometimes lose a friend over it. Denial is a powerful weapon that can be used against someone. When she denies, he has the weapon.

    I go overboard “getting involved”, I’ve been told. I had a party many years ago. A girl I knew came with her boyfriend. She was Asian and very tiny and he was a big white guy. The girl drank way too much and I had her go in my bedroom to sleep it off for a while. When I went back in to check on her a little bit later, I could get her to respond at all. I called 911. When I was looking at her, the sleeves on her blouse moved up and she had terrible bruising on both arms. Her boyfriend was furious that I had called 911. As soon as the ambulance and police arrived, I told them I couldn’t wake her and that I was afraid she might be being abused by her boyfriend. He denied it of course, and she later said “Oh that’s nothing! I just bruise easily.” Whatever. I’m not inclined to “mind my own business”. I really didn’t care that people were mad about me calling for help. Maybe I over-reacted, but honestly, I still believe it was an abusive situation.

    We do what we can, when we can. Don’t blame yourself. It’s not your fault that a man is insane.

    You’re right – indifference is the worst. Hindsight is 20/20 and I’m sure you wish you could go back – and you cant. However, you are helping and doing so many positive things now that I KNOW Kay would be proud.

    Much love to you~

    Thank you, Kim. Sometimes we don’t see what’s really going on before our very eyes. Abusers can be good at hiding it. The abused can be good at hiding it. And sometimes things happen unexpectadly that no one could have stopped. Our sisters were strong women but when there’s a gun, it’s almost impossible to stop the worst from happening. That’s why I am writing my blog. And you are writing your blog to make people aware of domestic abuse. Between us we are reaching a lot of people. Let’s hope it will help someone else. Meanwhile, writing is helping both of us deal with our hurt over losing our beautiful sisters. Keep writing.

    Indifference is, indeed, a bad thing. People have many reasons for not speaking up, and fear (either for themselves or fear of making a situation worse for their loved one) can make one remain silent. Of that, I am also guilty. But it wasn’t because I was indifferent – I was frightened.

    I am so sorry you have had to endure the loss of your beautiful sister. Thank you for not keeping silent. Thank you.

    You are making a difference! You are such an amazing woman, friend, mother, daughter, and sister! Please do not blame yourself, Kay knew you were there for whatever she ever needed. I know my parents blamed themselves for not being able to keep me safe from an abusive boyfriend in college and it breaks my heart that they took on that burden. You are one of the most amazing people I know and I am a better person for knowing you! Thank you for your friendship and the knowledge about domestic violence! Your words are so powerful. Love you 🙂

    Don’t blame yourself, Kim. Sometimes, things are just out of control. You could not have engineered that murderer’s actions or thoughts. Regrets always flood in, in retrospect. That’s why they say hindsight is 20/20.

    You are NOT to blame.

    Kim,

    I am pretty sure all of us can recall times in our lives where we stepped back and remained silent when we should have stepped up and interceded. It’s more prevalent than I’d like to admit it is in most of us. However, I can honestly say that reading your words, feeling your pain, and bearing witness to the worst of the worst consequences this kind of silence has caused to you and your family, that I am quite changed of opinion on never allowing myself to remain indifferent ever again in my own life. Your words have changed me for the better. I am certain your words have changed many others for the better too.

    I realize it is of little consolation to you as you continue this journey, but I do wish to let you know that you have managed to touch others and may have indeed saved others. God bless you for that Kim.

    Hugs and comfort to you.

      Indifference Kills.

      As my African pen pal says: It’s a murderer & it stops one from living fully…

    And I agree with Mami. Please don’t blame yourself ever. I wrote a 5000 word article about domestic violence for a Corrections publication in the 90’s and one of the things that always, and still, strikes me is how quick we are to blame ourselves just as many in society blame the victim for staying. As I said then in the piece, whose arm is attached to the fist and instead of why doesn’t she leave, why aren’t people asking, “why doesn’t he stop?” Your gift to your angel sister is your love that is going on forever in all you do to prevent this from happening to others. You rock 🙂

      –Dear, A,

      nobody has asked me why she stayed…

      they wouldn’t dare…

      … but I have all of that on my “Domestic Violence” Page.

      Thanks for your words. thanks for not being silent.

    Yea, you bet! No more silence. And what for?? At the cost of what?? The men who don’t even see the worth of their women?? Speak up, shout, rant!! Make him go deaf in the ears with your scream against his piggishness! (is that even a word? But you get my point!)

    Speak up!

    Thanks for this constant reminder. I chose to speak up. No more silence!

      –Warm Sunshine,

      I love your passion, your un-silence, and mostly, your new word– “piggishness.”

      Scream! Never be Silent! Stand Up! Speak Out! xx

    Being silent is the worst. i prefer to stand out and say what I think, even at the risk of loosing people.

    The echo of your pain is saving women every minute.
    I know you will always live with the thought that maybe you could have done things differently, maybe you could have saved Kay………..I don’t have words to ease your suffering Kim, I can only keep you an your loved ones in my prayers and send you much love.

    Don’t stop the battle.

    Kim, I guess we all feel guilty of what happened to Kay, but you are doing something about it, helping
    others not to be silent, but to yell their lungs out. (Get Out,Get Out, Get Out).
    Love You
    Dad

    So powerful! I am not one to look the other way when I see something horrible happening. Because of this, I have gotten in trouble more times than naught. But still, I would do it over in a heartbeat if it meant someone was safe.

    Kim, truly you must know how you serve to inspire. How you create awareness and above all, provide a much needed wake up call to women who may be or know of other women in abusive circumstances. Your efforts to spread the word of what happened to Kay serve to make women sit up and take notice that this could happen to them. Together, you and Kay are helping other women who could find themselves in dangerous circumstances. Together, you are spreading the word that silence kills. Together. You and her. What a team, you are, ladies, what a team! Hugs and kisses to you!

    I understand how you feel completely…having been at the receiving end of domestic violence. I write about it as often as possible…it is important for people to understand that they are not alone.

    Peace and Blessings to you,

      –Thank you.

      My sister’s husband murdered her.

      I shall never feel peace over this until we meet once again…

      So glad you are writing about this.
