So what is our plan?

Sit and wait for the band leaders to rise up and fill the need?
Scream out to an tone deaf social structure awakening them from slumber?
Join the choruses of others who are welcoming but who's song sung is of a different pitch?
Or let the music stop?

Balanced (My goal)

There is symmetry
In self-reflection
Life exemplified
Grace personified

For me I will keep knocking on doors, asking questions and challenging the status quo on male abuse. Whether I make any difference I feel I have an obligation for the men who will be assaulted in the future.

I do not feel I can complain about the current lack of recognition and services unless I am also out there kicking the tires as well.

I am willing but acknowledge I cannot do this alone or create what is not there. I hope some pros get involved at some point but we shall see...

Broad statements often miss their true mark.

Yes, none of us can do this alone ...

I'm not sure what to do either, but i know i survived because i was too stubborn to give up. And on behalf of my brothers who haven't found their way yet, i will remain stubborn ...and bullheaded ...and i will not shut up about this issue until we all have a chorus of our own...

I'm no Lady Gaga, but i have music in my heart, just waiting for the band to strike up a tune...
