Self-Defense Class in the DMV Area July 22

WHOS BAD SELF DEFENSE WORKSHOP

 

I am all for women, especially Black women from all walks of life, knowing how to defend themselves in everyday life. There are enough stats of missing girls and women within the DMV area alone that is staggering and hits close to home. My sister pushed me to take a self-defense class and I thank her for it because it showed me how much strength I had that I didn’t know and how poor my boundaries were. I would silently suffer while people crossed boundaries that made me feel red hot angry. But boundaries are about self preservation. If someone crosses them it activates our fight or flight response. And I am still learning to enforce those boundaries I have learned. But for those who are confused and unsure there is a Self-Defense class taking place on Andrews AFB from 9:30am-12:30pm. You can purchase tickets and find more detail on the link above. The price of learning to protect yourself and your loved ones is priceless.

NYDailyNews: Over 12 Missing Teen Bronx Girls Raise Concerns of Possible Abduction and Forced Prostitution

As a community we must be on the look out for children and the children in our vicinity. There is no reason why this trend of abducted young girls have not reach media airwaves. The girls are young, the article stated, between the ages of 12-19 years old and they are predominately African American and Hispanic. There is no surprise about the lack of coverage concerning missing children of color. But there are too many missing and not enough attention placed on their case. This is so sad, because these young children are being preyed upon and it’s not right. No monster should be able to abduct kids and possibly force them into prostitution. There has to be something we can do. I don’t know if its calling our kids while they are walking to their destination, teaching them how to be aware of their surroundings, ensuring someone is home when they get home, maybe even driving them to where they need to go. I just want kids to be safe.

“More than a dozen teenage girls from the Bronx have been reported missing over the last two years — and a City Councilman fears they may have been abducted and forced into a prostitution ring.

The list of missing girls released Wednesday by Councilman Andy King is long enough to fill the roster of a softball team.

But King fears the girls suffered a far worse fate, and is appealing to the public to help get the word out.”
