My Body Belongs to Me

0

The little girl with her thin blond hair sat on the cold wooden floor, protected by the darkness. The demon’s back glowed by the light from the moon, shiny and white, apart from some big moles that looked as if brown mud had been thrown at him.

The demon didn’t know that it was only her shell that he ravaged. He stroked her soft skin with his rough working hands. It felt like sandpaper to her sensitive skin. To survive, she had to leave her body. Leave her body from the pain and degradation, but the memories would always find their way into her subconscious.

The demon was not a fantasy. He was real! He was alive. He breathed, talked, and pledged his love. But the most important thing that he told her; it was their secret.

He was someone she knew. She had been taught to never follow strangers, only to trust them she knew.  And so she did.

Always talk to young children and teach them the differences between, “good touching, bad touching and secret touching.” But also for them to say “Stop! Its my body!” from relatives, to friends, to strangers……..no one.

That’s Amore!

Summer Vacation

Workin with animal wellness and welfare (isn’t that the same thing?) summer time is our hardest months with many abandon animals. Many people dump their dogs, or put them out in the garden, alone.

Several of the pets are escaping.

Its heart breaking to see many dogs sitting by their parco waiting for their owner to come home. No one opens the door for several days.

Pets lose their instinct and intuition very quickly, and will not survive many days out alone on the streets. Pets do not know how to get food, since we the humans have kept giving it to them. Children that got homes are being served food by their mother or father, and the children wouldn’t survive, for example, on the streets of Brasil together with homeless children. Children that grew up on the streets had to learn quickly how to survive. Just like the starys, but not the pets.

Start planing for your pets early……That’s Amore!
