“Justice cannot be for one side alone, but must be for both” Eleanor Roosevelt, 1933
I understand everyone’s concern about current events and reporting.
AngelEyes Foundation wants to inspire cultural change for the actions of victims and abusers, take ownership and responsibility for lives that have been forever and permanently altered.
The hardest thing to do is to remain unbiased and transparent in our quest for the truth, providing a safe haven to share and document a living testimony of event or events.
One of the problems with these old cases was that they were never reported in a timely manner nor was evidence properly collected, along with the fact that it was a time we didn’t talk about such secrets in tragedies. We and they were supposed to keep such things to themselves so not to shame or embarrass themselves or the family, because most of the offenders are or were friends or family or someone close to the family or victims.
We need to also consider life from the perpetrator or abusers’ point of view. If they were raised by an offender or a generational line of offenders, you and we must consider the possibility that they may not understand the severity of the crime they committed. If you grow up being taught that it’s ok to beat up anyone who offends you, how can you know it’s wrong? The lack of proper education and bad role models in the past shouldn’t be overlooked, new education for both offenders and potential victims will have a positive impact on the future numbers and statistics.
We need to open the door and clean out the closet and quit hiding those skeletons, offenders and perpetrators need to be held accountable for what they have done.
With that being said we still have a moral and ethical responsibility to avoid taking down an innocent person with a vengeful or false accusation. In today’s culture we are hypersensitive to many things, this is a powerful tool that is being used to manipulate our country, government, communities and most of all our judicial system.
This can no longer be viewed as a political issue but as a cultural issue that affects our society as a whole.
I am asking each and every one of you to support our new educational miniseries that not only shows the long-term effects of Domestic/Sexual Violence but also helps educate all current/potential offenders & current/potential victims. If you think you’re in an abusive relationship you probably are, you need to break the silence reach out and let someone help you.
