Being There. Being. Just Being.

If you are a “steady” follower of my blog, you know I have a few deeply entrenched passions in my soul. Fighting cancer, bullying, and abuse are so ingrained in my nature, I don’t think I could possibly ignore a request for words of support. Heck, I run their logo’s on the right side of my blog. Year round. Did you know, on average more than three women a day are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends in the United States? Nearly one in four women in the US reports experiencing violence by a current or former spouse or boyfriend at some point in her life. Women are 84% of spouse abuse victims and 86% of victims of abuse at the hands of a boyfriend or girlfriend and about three-fourths of the persons who commit family violence are male. The United Nations Development Fund for Women estimates that at least one of every three women globally will be beaten, raped, or otherwise abused in her lifetime. For them, I choose to stand up. I will stand, not because it is a popular thing to do, I stand because it’s the only thing I can do. Stand, be heard, support, embrace, and raise up these women. Let them know I won’t turn my back on them, or cover my eyes, I am here and I care. Won’t you stand with me?

November 25th, according to the United Nations, is the “International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women“. Since 2010 this event has been celebrated in Second Life with a great show lasting about one week (approximately November 18th to November 25th), organized by the committee “2Lei in Second Life“, an artistically minded compassionate group of citizens they are (about us: http://secondlife2lei.blogspot.it/p/blog-page_24.html). And nows the time, we need you to throw in too because 2Lei is calling out to resident artists to celebrate with us as we raise awareness of these often silent victims of abuse.

Following the free assignment of the song “Libera” by the singer-songwriter Fabio Tettoni (http://secondlife2lei.blogspot.it/2013/09/libera-by-fabio-tettoni.html), the topic of this new edition has been chosen: “Freedom”.

Obviously, the interpretation of the topic is free, but we hope it will be viewed in a positive way and will lead to the fulfillment of events featuring examples, issues, projects and paths about women’s liberation from various kinds of violence.

You can join the show too! Here’s how:

– providing your work of art
– organizing an event
– personally collaborating within the committee
– taking part in the events that wil be organized;
