I am sitting here stunned and I’m not sure that I’ll be able to make the words flow for this post.
Shocked. Angered. Disappointed.
I have an entire line of expletives just waiting to rush out of my mouth and onto the screen, but this is a family friendly site.
I didn’t watch the Grammys last night. I have no idea who performed, who won what, etc.
But, I came across an article titled “25 Extremely Upsetting Reactions to Chris Brown at the Grammys” and well, my curiosity got the best of me.
I really, REALLY wish it hadn’t. I wish I wouldn’t have clicked that headline.
If you don’t want to go read it, let me just sum it up for you:
25 different females invited Chris Brown to come beat them.
Any time. Any day. All night.
Oh yes, they did.
Apparently, if you are a good looking superstar, that makes domestic violence not only okay, but welcomed.
Did they not see the photos of Rihanna after her severely beat her?
Not all women get out. Rihanna was blessed that she did.
I’d like to grab each of them and take them to the cemetary with me.
I’d like to show them HER face.
SHE is the face of domestic violence and laying her to rest at 28 years old broke so many hearts, so many lives shattered.
And these women are making fun of domestic violence. Let me just tell you how FUN it is…
It’s holding onto a mother and only being able to say “We shouldn’t be here..” while you look at her dead daughter lying in a casket.
It’s hearing that a life is gone. It’s replaying the scene over and over in your head.
It’s a funeral home full of sorrow. It’s a cemetery full of beautiful flowers for a woman who shouldn’t be 6 feet under.
It’s being so angry that you have no idea what to do with it. It’s having a clouded mind and not being able to think of anything else.
It’s visions of someone you love being beaten. It’s wondering if she died soon or if she was in pain.
It’s wondering if she begged him to stop. It’s wondering why he didn’t.
It’s crying until your eyes are red and stinging, but still crying some more.
It’s wondering if you’ll ever find peace and forgiveness.
It’s knowing that as hard as it is on me, it’s a million times worse for her parents and brothers.
We aren’t supposed to bury our children. We certainly aren’t supposed to get the call that they’ve been beaten, murdered, and stuffed into a duffel bag.
That is what domestic violence is. It’s anger, it’s hurt, it’s loss. It is so many things, but a joke is NOT one of them.
