Abuse is one of the most heinous crimes in the history of humanity,

and still I forgive Chris Brown.

I the Lord will forgive whom I will forgive,

but of you it is required to forgive ALL men.”

Once again, I go over my standard 2 minutes

because it is important for me to express ALL I need to say:

Recapture:

I forgive Chris Brown.

I’m quite sure Rihanna has publicly expressed that she has.

I in no way condone his past behavior as acceptable.

Abuse of any kind is unspeakably evil, ugly, and utterly unacceptable.

I can understand where Miranda Lambert (and others with similar viewpoints) are coming from.

I believe that the Atonement of Jesus Christ can redeem even people who make BIG mistakes.

I believe Mr. Brown when he has publicly expressed how sorry he is.

I expect Chris to be on his absolute best behavior from now on.

I sincerely hope I am not offending anyone who has ever experienced abuse.

And to begin to conclude this post, I wish to share the following LDS Conference Talk concerning this heartbreaking topic.

Read here. 

I pray that you, as one abused or one who has caused it, will act now to avail yourself of the healing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I testify that your faith and obedience will assure that He will help you. 

Thank you Elder Scott.

READERS!

         If any of you have experienced

or are currently experiencing abuse of any kind,

my heart and prayers are with you.

Remember that you are a child of God

and deserve to be treated as such.

Hide yo kids, hide yo wife!

Screen shot 2013-08-14 at 9.29.57 AMThe video from which this still comes is meant to be funny (though personally I find it offensive), but it brings up a lot of serious issues.  Our world is fallen, and although there are so many beautiful reasons i have to be happy, no one can deny that there is A LOT of evil out there, particularly when it comes to how people treat children.  Penn State Scandal, Casey Anthony case, etc, it seems to be everywhere we look.  It can be almost enough to make us want to stay indoors forever and never want to interact with anyone again (let alone have our own children), but I believe there are resources available to help us cope with this problem.  The following LDS General Conference address is a landmark talk on some ways to not only help us prevent (child) abuse, but also heal from it.

Read here. 

Parents, in sensitive, appropriate ways,

teach your children some of the warning signs of abuse.

I also like this resource because it helps us identify the location of predators so that we can better keep our children safe.

Do you have any other practical ideas to help us (from a grassroots perspective) combat this problem?  Lemme know:  katherineannewilkinson@gmail.com
