Change Who We Are
“We can’t help who we were born to, but we sure the hell can help what we become.” (A quote from a character in The Pulpit)
We can’t change who our family is. We can only change who we are. Not everyone was born into the ideal Leave it to Beaver family. Such is the case with the evangelist in my book The Pulpit. Declaring to avenge his mother’s and sister’s deaths by the hands of his perverted father and Baptist preacher uncle, he finds that the shame of his family prevents him from feeling worthy of a healthy relationship himself.
From his pulpit Brother Billy spreads seeds of love which blossom and bloom as his rescue homes grow and become Beacons of Light. Like Billy many of us have doubted that what we are doing to help get rid of horrific disease in this country is hopelessly ineffective.
When courts and churches blame the woman or girl for her abuse especially when she tries to fight back, we should feel alarmed. When the president of our own country gets sympathy as he uses his power to take advantage of a woman who works for him, we should yell from the roof tops … NO MORE.
This story is written from a man’s view when he was not only the victim of abuse but also suffered the loss of his female loved ones to rape and death. This is a disease that touches everyone.
