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.

    Isn’t it reassuring to witness the human element of the human-being reference in action. It alas has reached a point where it is the exception rather than the rule, which has us reacting in awe of these wonderful good Samaritans. The positive side is that airing these beautiful gestures will have a positive chain reaction. Thank you for sharing this, of which there can never be too much. JJ

    • Sad that it is the exception and that more press/attention isn’t brought to more cases of these acts of kindness. It always amazed me that JFK won the Pulitzer for Profiles in Courage because he wrote about a handful of senators who spoke out, did what was right, regardless of the consequence to life, job, limb, health, etc. One would hope they wouldn’t stand out as exceptional, for being honest, protecting those who voted for them, etc. This along the same line as your wise comment. Thank you, JJ.

    This was well worth the watch P – thanks.

  11. So true and there are more of them than we think–we just don’t hear or see them often enough. Probably because these angels work in quiet ways, seeking no glory for what they do.

  12. Wonderful to see that there are still good people in the world. Pawkisses 🙂

    Dear Paulette, thank you for finding this beautiful video! I reblogged it directly from YT and gave you credit. As usual, added a few words from myself.

    P.S. Recognize various Russian towns. It’s so wonderful to see that kindness is alive and well.
