Eighth Anniversary of A Cry For Justice
[July 9, 2022: There have been some changes made to this post. For more information, read the Editors’ notes at the bottom of the post. Editors.]
Tomorrow, 7 Jan 2020, will be the eighth anniversary of this blog. It is two years and four months since Jeff Crippen resigned leaving me as the sole leader of this site.
I couldn’t do it without the help of my assistant, Reaching Out. She works behind the scenes: moderating comments, giving me suggestions, clearing the Spam, paying attention to so many small details that make the site easier for readers to use.
You may be wondering why I haven’t posted a new post for a while. For the last couple of months I have been putting lots of attention into my family — my siblings, their partners / spouses, in-laws, nieces and nephews, Christmas. Plus my daughter is back in Australia for several weeks which makes me very happy. I value my family network.
I am fortunate to have a family that I want to keep in touch with. Some of the readers at this blog have no family that they want to keep in touch with because all their family is so toxic that it’s not safe to maintain even the smallest connection.
I have two members of my extended family who (in my view) are toxic. I have chosen to continue having contact with them because if I went “No Contact” with them it would hurt the rest of the family. I have put a lot of thought into how I will deal with the ones I find toxic. One of the things that helped me do that was James’s post Jesus on Violence which talked about Self-Defence against dangerous people. I applied that concept of self-defence to my personal situation.
I’ve been sending out books to survivors of domestic abuse who request them because they can’t afford them. (See our Gift Books Offer.) Every penny that ACFJ gets from being in the Amazon Associates program is spent on gift books for survivors. It gives me great joy to send out books to impoverished victims, especially those who have just escaped their abusers. I make the Amazon Associates funds go as far as I can. I have spent many hours figuring out how to most economically purchase and ship books to readers in countries around the world. (Techno gripe: Amazon does NOT make it easy for Aussies!)
I have been busy at Twitter. Click here to follow me on Twitter.
I have moved my email accounts to a fully encrypted email platform (Runbox.com). You may or may not see firstname.lastname@example.org when I send out an email, but you can be assured that my main address <email@example.com> is now at the encrypted platform. I did this for my safety as well as the safety of people who communicate with me by email.
In the last year I also started the Mystery Of Iniquity blog which deals with extreme abuse such as satanic ritual abuse, child trafficking, and trauma-based mind control.
My next post on A Cry For Justice will analyse the principles of Lundy Bancroft’s Peak Living Network from a biblical point of view.
