After her seeemingly almost inevitable murder, given the protections for criminals and the works of their attorneys, I became a national victim's advocate and raised Lisa's six and ten year old girls.
I've been taking he messsage to the public on behalf of the victims who have little voice ever since. I developed a reputation for credibility and honesty and some have said courage, but I don't see it quite that way. I see it as a need to share some things with people who have not had the misfortune to have had this experience. What I find is that thinking people and people who really care about society would rather hear bad truths than a politically correct lie or non-statement. While there was a necessity for political correctness while working at the Capitol, my book, "Who Killed Lana B?" is not. I know that some domestic violence victims dare not even visit sites about domestic violence, I am trying to get the book into environments such as shelters where they can be used as a cautionary tale. I also want to help young women and men understand the issues that lead to domestic violence so that they will be neither aggressor or victim. I want to bring them to help. OK, I'm lightening up now.
Take good care of yourself, you are the only one who can.
