I get a lot of emails. I guess that term “a lot” is relative. I don’t know what a lot is, but for me the number of emails I get per day from women and more than a few men is a lot. Every single day I get emails with people telling me very personal and difficult things that they have experienced. Many have never told anyone else. The email to me is often the first time they shared what awful thing they went through. Some are stories of near misses, some parallel mine and some are so gut wrenchingly awful that it takes me a bit to get through them. But, I do. I read every word and offer whatever support I can and I spend an enormous amount of time on my knees for these women.
I would like to share one of those stories with you. This is probably going to be a story like you have never read before. It will probably challenge many of your emotions, but I ask that you take the time to read it.
When you are finished reading the story I would like for you to stop and think how different things could have been if any of the women had a weapon and/ or training. Then I would like you to consider going here and donating money to help Erin become trained and armed. I do not normally advertise(although this is the second time in a week) when I donate money to certain causes, but if I am asking you to give then it is fair that you know that I already have.
