To this Day

Thank you to The Other Side Of Ugly for directing me to this. One of my all time favorite poets Shane Koyczan speaks his poem. Dedicated to all the children out there and inside of us that need to here this.

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.

    Very powerful video. Great.

  2. You find the most interesting and important things, Paulette!

    • You know, I just wrote to the friend who reblogged this, Sheri, over at The Other Side Of Ugly (wonderful inspirational site) that I carry around this pain in my heart. It doesn’t define me, it motivates me. Sometimes things ease it and make my heart feel better, happier. Sometimes not, like this one, the heartache comes front and center. I think it’s that pain that gravitates to these posts. Love you, kiddo.
