JewBu Quest: From Abuse to Happiness

JewBu: a Jew who practices forms of Buddhist meditation & spirituality. This blog documents my quest to 1) heal from sexual, verbal, and emotional abuse, 2) come to terms with losing Mom and Grandma to Alzheimers, 3) find balance, explore the spiritual, stay present. Bascially, I've experienced some pretty crappy shit in my life and want to find a way to move past it and find happiness.

Why Rape Survivors Shouldn't Vote for Palin

Since a number of my readers are survivors of sexual violence, I thought it pertinent to share with you Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin's long practice of silencing survivors. While mayor, she had rape survivors charged for their own rape exam kits! And now she's blaming firing her top lawman as Governor that the man she fired was trying to get funds for fighting sexual assault.

If you don't believe me, read ABC's article, AP's article, or watch this video from MSNBC.

Please, help spread the word. Even if you are a Republican, it is important that efforts to silence survivors of sexual violence and challenges to the prevalence of sexual violence are reported. We must make it clear that we will not stand by silently as sexual violence continues so rampantly!
