When we Cry... (2015)

To each and every one of us who are now struggling, fighting to find our voice. To all the little ones who were unable to rise; sounds became inaudible. My objective in writing this book was to bring about awareness, particularly in our communities of color, of the effects in our lives, when we choose to ignore our struggles. With regards to mental illness, abusive relationships and secrecy, we tend to oftentimes, rationalize and cover up the shame and abuse. We become embarrassed and therefore keep quiet. As a way to cope or accept the abuse, we stay. My writing seeks to open those painful doors to a fresh freedom in knowing that our 'silence will not protect us' Audre Lorde.
