Tomorrow, We Walk!

Sometimes, I make fun shirts and wear them in public.

Quick note in the midst of a hefty workload at the office to mention the most awesome of events: Walk a Mile in Her Shoes. The event occurs nationwide during April (Sexual Assault Awareness Month) and is a beautiful expression by men to show their support for victims by literally walking a mile in women’s shoes. Last year was my first year participating and I drafted my friends’ husbands and former boss to walk for Team Afightbackwoman.com. I made t-shirts and dressed them in sassy feather boas and clip-on flowers. Alas, this year, all of them are away and I chickened out on asking others. Don’t want to wear out my welcome, and besides, I don’t know too many people here well enough to ask them to wear stilettos for me and parade in them around the town green.

I was so excited for the day. I need to make more of those shirts. Be loud and be proud of what you've been through, I say.

Tomorrow, I will volunteer with the good people of the Milford Rape Crisis Center where I am a crisis counselor. We are hoping for sunny skies and I think we are going to get them. I will post some images tomorrow night. Always lots of laughs to see what the men come up with.

These walkers are no joke.
