  1. Hi, my name is Meredith Cavaness Corning and I am from a small town in Arkansas. I have recently started a grass roots effort to support the victims of domestic violence by encouraging others to provide clothing, accessories and personal care products to local women's shelters and other related advocacy groups within their communities. I am hoping that by coming up with creative ways to do this we can encourage victims and empower them through self-confidence. I am going to follow your blog and I would love for you to follow mine as I am still trying to rally up the troops and I need some support by way of numbers. Any advice would be appreciated. Here is a link to my blog: http://thecompassionfashionproject.blogspot.com/. Thank you so much for your time and your efforts in shedding a light on domestic violence.

  2. Women Who Have Been Victim of Domestic Abuse..or have Children Who Have Been Abused, We Need Your Help! Go to Change.Org

    Hundreds of Litigants are calling for the resignation of Judge Laura Drager, a Judge who overlooks domestic violence and child abuse in lieu of the rich spouse.

    She is laughing called the CEO of the Divorce Company, where she makes the rich man richer, by making the richer lawyer richer. But this Judge is No Joke. She has been know to throw beaten women onto the street and has turned down the pleas of children for help, to get a “win” for the Power Broker Husband in New York City.
