How else are we going to bring an end to abuse, then to create more awareness around it? No wonder, Guru Pikta, the Mike Meyers character in the movie The Love Guru, used Mariska Hargitay as a divine greeting! With all she has done to create awareness, her name should be synonymous with divinity.

Here’s a story run on multiple ABC Eyewitness News channels, and the article about how the show “Law and Order” led to an arrest. “Law and Order” episode leads to child sexual abuse arrest 

I know we shouldn’t prejudge, right? Sorry, but my own personal experience causes my ears to perk up when I hear these kinds of stories. Admittedly, I still get a little nauseous, and it makes me more vigilant in doing my part to help end the suffering, that is seemingly endless when you are going through recovery. Finding peace is attainable, that I can promise. You may want to read more about my Heart Pillar Workshop. Heart Pillar Description

In all honesty, I never really watched Law and Order SVU. Okay, I’ll try to do a little catching up, but in teaching consciousness, I’m not going to buy into any guilt around that either. Maybe it’s that in the past, it would have triggered too much? Who knows? That doesn’t mean I can’t have a great deal of respect and admiration for all that Mariska Hargitay has done to create awareness surrounding abuse between the show, Joyful Heart Foundation, and now the NO MORE PSA campaigns. NO MORE PSA CAMPAIGN 

I remember the expression “enough is enough,” but NO MORE definitely has a much stronger feel to it.  These messages help break down many of the old stigmas that caused victims to be silent. Hearing some of the expressions that many victims have had to endure in the PSAs caused me to shutter, knowing I heard similar words. It’s always amazed me how others can be so judgmental towards the victims, especially other women, but I’ll save that topic for another post. I’ve got my voice now, and you can find yours too.
