Thank you for your posting regarding rock-star cop Shari Mackay.
She has been instrumental in my healing process and was the critical driving force to ensure the police did their job to see this case through to conviction. I have read some of your other postings today, and I really admire your bold, strong, direct attitude to hitting issues head on, and not being afraid to share your opinion or speak out for what you believe in.
Thank you Ann!
Seriously, thank you. I needed that vote of confidence.
The truth is I sometimes don't feel all that bold. I know I am bold online, often because I sometimes write when I am angry or standing up for something. But the truth is most of my friends would probably describe me as being weird or eccentric, and I hope they say I am easy going (or as Americans like to say "down to earth").
My boldness seems to come out mostly online and when I am pissed off about something. Not that I am not bold in person, but sometimes I am also tired / stressed and/or just don't feel like it.
ie. Today I was feeling down so I was going to sit at home, watch cartoons and eat cereal straight out of the box. I am supposed to be working on my book today but when I woke up I didn't feel like it. And then I got your email and I suddenly found the urge to write again.
So thank you Ann. I hope you will continue to read my blog Feminist Truths, check out the Feminist eZine and continue to persevere despite hardships. I know I will continue to do the same (even if I do pause and take a break every once in awhile).
