About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

  1. Oh. I feed and protect the good one, but I check in on the bad one every so often. She needs attention, too. 😉

    My posted response to Otrazhenie… A memorable analogy from way back when, timeless and so true from any perspective. “The one you feed, or The one you feed most”, what a platform for understanding and the potential elimination of warring at all levels.

    This is always a good reminder for me. Thanks for the reblog.

  6. Life is too short to waste on the Evil One. The Good One may not always be as good as it could be, but it’s much more productive to feed it when you can.

    I look after the good one and try to understand the bad one.

    Well, I think I’ll feed both of them. It’s not good to be too god and it’s not good to be too bad either. Everyhting must be balance.

    • Another great point! I guess it boils down to be authentic, watch our thinking, and if possible work to try to understand the negative that arises while trying to not dwell in it. Just summarizing what I’ve read in yours and other great responses. Balance is it then, isn’t it? Thank you. 🙂
