Touching Broken People
Organized by: Karen Fridie-Burke
EVENT DATE Nov 02, 2015
The novel, "Box of Secrets" is a true to life story geared to people who have been phycically and emotionally damaged through acts of Rape and Domestic Violence. There are many survivors like myself, who have endured such, and overcame by sheer determination, human support and the grace of God.
Still today, these abusive acts continue to go unchecked in some areas of society. In many instances, the victims are the ones that are judged and condemned. Unless, one comes to know and understand the cause and effect, these monstrosities would continue to dominate our societies.
In this autobiographical novel, one can travel back in time with the writer to her beginning, and onward through a life of abuse and abandonment. You'd understand her protective method of avoidance, through an imaginary box overflowing with secrets and bits of childish humour, and be transported to different stages of her life: from innocence to betrayal, pain, shame, anger and rage; then, finally healing, forgiveness, and restoration through God's powerful intervention.
Your donations would provide the financial and moral support needed to fulfill a mission of awareness, and ultimately play a key role in the success of this book. Through a future blog site, I will keep you updated with its process.
Any excess funds received, will be donated to: RAINN (Rape and Incest National Network) and NO MORE, a USA based organization involved in addressing and curbing these atrocities in our society.
I thank you for being a part of this cause.
