Special Message From Monique

I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the racial crisis happening at this moment. I do not have the perfect words right now, only feelings.  As a trauma survivor, having experienced a different form of injustice, what I am feeling is a horrendously painful reminder of my past.  A past filled with horrors that took me decades to recover from along with the accompanying feelings of insecurity, fear, anxiety, pain, helplessness, anger, and an inability to find my voice.  For those of you who are suffering please know that I acknowledge your feelings as well as the various types of trauma you may be experiencing.  To that end, I wanted to send along some resources that may help you process recent events.  My heart goes out to any of you who may be suffering at this time.
