Want to be brave?

The disabled person equals target, victim, mark, across the world.
Years ago, while attending a CE seminar, a fact stuck with me.
The less functioning the disabled individual, the higher the probability of rape and assault – the statistic cited 85% reported cases.
Reported cases.
Articles supporting this dismal fact hits home, breaks my heart, knots my stomach and fires me up.
You’ve been exposed to non-bullying programs, curriculums and propaganda.
Non-violence.
Non-violence.
Non-violence.
Read the articles below. Your first step toward bravery.
As Oprah says, “Once you know better, you do better.” Maybe she quoted her mentor and my hero, Maya Angelou.

Be brave, read the article, dare yourself to know better as to do better in 2015.
