Whereas, my friend and blog follower told me she likes my posts but said quite frankly my recent Domestic Violence (DV) posts are depressing.
Whereas, my DV posts are written for victims and survivors as on on-line support group to say ‘we’re not alone.’
Whereas, if they were overly upbeat and optimistic, I’d need my head examined.
Whereas, I don’t want my readers to feel they need to take antidepressants before reading my posts.
Whereas, I love my friend and believe her opinion may be echoed by other readers.
Therefore, I planned to write a rainbow, unicorn, happy face love fest today for my friend.
Whereas, a daily post inspired me to make it a Friendly Friday feature.
Therefore, on the tenth day of October, in the year of our Lord two thousand fourteen, I issue this proclamation to my beloved friend and readers.
Therefore, while I had a few darker posts planned for a Friday or two during Domestic Violence Awareness month, I declare that I will publish them another day or night of the week.
Therefore, I promise to only publish warm, positive, upbeat posts on Fridays with one exception – Good Friday.
Therefore, I promise to all my fellow victims and survivors that I will never post a “I’m so glad I was raped” or “How rape is part of God’s plan” post. Not happening.
Now therefore, by the power invested in me by WordPress as a blogger, I, Karen P. Simpson, call on my readers to help me with this endeavor by providing me inspirational pictures or stories of Christ in action.
