NEVER AGAIN, THEY SAY!! But how many times have they said that? how many times have they come back for more?..How many times have they been abused mentally or physically, So bad ,that they can’t take it anymore. But they go back,again and again, till that final abuse, where it ends up in a tragic way.
There is help and understanding out there. But they are scared, maybe petrified especially if they have children. Scared that he will come looking for her. Therefore she would not take that chance to get out. Some are lucky enough to have a family to go home to..Others
have shelters if they can get there..The department of Justice and others have hotline numbers for shelters that women and their children can call..If you know someone like this, help them get out!!!!!Here, where I live we have..Women of the Storm which is a wonderful shelter.
Some women are very strong and get away,some of these dear women are broken..God, it makes you sick to see the hurt and the pain that they suffer from the person that they loved, who turned into a n person.They don’t even know them anymore.Lets be truthful here,a lot of it is due to drinking and drugs.
In my long life, believe me, I have seen a lot of this madness.I was in The Restaurant and lounge business, very upscale. I helped a waitress that was abused terribly, in fact just recently I heard..now this is 20 year later that one of the waitresses was beaten to death.

Susan Bergstrom commented…Powerful Miss Sherri…I worked with the Police Dept. for 5 years in the domestic violence unit…a woman will go back on the average of six times before she gets herself killed or she finally gets out!
*******************************************************
Is this worrisom or what…PLEASE HELP THEM!!!
OR HELP YOURSELVES…we are all rooting for you!!!
Women who I knew who were very weathy and wonderful powerful politicians or business women were also involved in abuse…It doesn’t matter who you are ..famous, rich, poor or otherwise. I am sure all of us have known someone who has been a victim of abuse.

I worked for years for the department of Justice in the Netherlands as an assistent public prosecutor. It is very difficult to help these women. Often they took action later on to get the case dismissed. There were also cases that the (ex-) husband killed the woman finally. When I still was an Artwanted member I tried to help such a woman, but she was way too scared to help herself. She ended up broken mentally and stayed. I lost all the contact. Your artwork shows the pain and violence very well.

We must always remember how children are abused so badly mentally and physically, I can remember a child of a couple the boy..he use to pull his eye lashes out…it was when I first got married and we were renting a apartment and I could hear the boy get yelled at and getting beat..horrible ..so let us not forget our children …they deserve better!!!!

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST 2013

Beauty and Beast 2013
Hope you are all having a great day… PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA AND SURROUNDING AREAS, This was quite a fire last Year, 2013 I was looking thru some things and found this one image again…I thought I would share it with you!! Nature can be so cruel at times and yet so beautiful. This is why I called it Beauty and The Beast. The ashes were everywhere. People with breathing problems were told to stay in… I always think of the people that have lost everything. or most all the lost lives and our men and women who fight these fires who put their life in danger everyday.. I know the hurt and pain that goes with a home burning down because my home burned down in 91 and I lost so many memories of my parents grandparents and my childrens things that I cherrished I thought my cat was in gone for sure, but a couple of days later a lady found her all scared and shaky… …she had stones in her little feetsies and of course she looked like she had a real rough time…she did die very young and it was from the inhalation of the smoke.the doctor said.. I love beautiful things, its important to me but material things are not very important as they used to be. My family that are not here anymore are in my heart and I have a wonderful file in my mind of music and other things that immediately bring those wonderful memories right back. God, love, beauty, music, kindness are most important to me .. How about you?, I didn’t think I was going to write this…but anyone that knows me for the last 5 years..knows I do this every once in awhile.. huggs Sherri

Fading with time, but coming back at the same time…

Straighten Up And Fly Right

3 vas                                                                                                                                                                      Time after time I feel as though I am fading. but i catch myself

It isn’t time to fade it is never time to fade, thats when the struggle must go on

one day I woke up ( thank God ) and was hurting with some problems I have with

my back and I had been rather upset about it…as i was getting out of bed…the words

STRAIGHTEN UP AND FLY RIGHT

I now  I say this when I wake up and through the day

Thats a good cheery song to..
