Hello Everyone,

My dear friend Laurin is a survivor of sex trafficking. She was trafficked in San Diego for 20 years and managed to escape, but now she unfortunately is homeless and living in poverty. Laurin was also branded by her traffickers with a ‘619’ (as the picture shows) to show that she was “property” of pimps in San Diego.

Laurin has survived so much, and she has managed to escape her traffickers. While Laurin has proven to be super woman, she still was branded by her traffickers and she now has to look at this tattoo every day of her life to remind her of where she once was. She was sex trafficked and branded by her traffickers. and though she managed to escape her traffickers, she cannot escape the fact they branded her.

I’m going to ask for help: if you know of any tattoo artists, or you are a tattoo artist, in OGDEN, UT; PROVO, UT; or SALT LAKE CITY, UT that would be willing to cover up the tattoo for Laurin at no cost to her, please e-mail me at GEGELE676@GMAIL.COM


This would mean the world to Laurin, she deserves to be fully liberated from her traffickers and covering up the tattoo they branded her with is a step towards Laurin’s liberation from them. Please help if you can!

Laurin on the tattoo she’s been branded with:

You know how folks will ask you, ‘so. Your a year older, feel any different? ‘

The answer is usually no, it’s just another day. 
But yet, today is somehow different. 
I feel different. 
Maybe I’m completely done and detoxed from the life. 
Maybe I want to set a better example to those whom I help. 
Not sure. 
Only, today was different. I had a visceral reaction to something that I used to be proud of. 
Today I got of the shower and all I could focus on was the red, glaring and branding tattoo the reads a red 619.
My pimp got it for me, for my birthday. 
I loved it for so long. It made me his. I was so enthralled with him, I felt honored that somebody loved me enough to mark me with their ID. 
It became a part of me. I was easily identified in magazines and film. I Would refuse to cover it up. 
Men that would pay for my time would always say something, ’ are you the original? ’ ” Oh let me see that sexy 619’
Yes, that’s the area code for San Diego.
I’m all about Daygo.
But that’s not what it means. 
Today, as I look at my right breast, I see nothing but the horror. 
The nightmare that was my life. The pimp who tried to kill me. The rapes, the humiliation, the stolen chance of being a mother….
THE LIFE. 
Today a saddness, a new humiliation of being owned, of a life stolen is represented in the ink that is attached to my breast.
Today I do not like it. 
Today I do not feel sexy, or loved or any of those old feelings I used to have when I looked at my chest. 
Today I am a little more grown up than yesterday. 
And today, yesterday is a little tougher to swallow.”

PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST!!!!!!

Hey, guys.

This is a bit of a different post than normal from me… but I’ve been heartbroken and crying today because of what’s been going on. What frustrates me even more is that there’s not much I can do other than this.

DO NOT GIVE THIS TO YOUR DOGS!!!!!!
I gave this product to my 12 lb. 1 year old shih tzu. 2 hours later he began throwing up and having diarrhea uncontrollably! Throwing up 2 mins apart from each other everywhere. His eyes were giant and he was shaking. We called the pet ER and they urged us to bring him in. Rushing him into the ER we were terrified and felt horrible for giving him this. He was examined and it was concluded that he went into anaphylactic shock from the allergy medicine. He was given iv fluid and epinephrine. They put a catheter in and had to observe him overnight for after shock. Thankfully he returned home the next day after a huge pet bill to save his life. If we would have waited he may not be here today. Please DO NOT give this to your dogs. IT CONTAINS grape seed extract, which is toxic to dogs!!!! Please help me signal boost so we can inform more people about this product.

Signal boosting for all my dog lovers!

If you get a note like this from this guy, ignore it. Delete it. If you ask what his daughter likes, he’ll try sending you a very suspicious folder with random art in it, as well as a virus.

I find that last one particularly amusing because 

A winter ago I had an after-school seminar for high-school students and in one of the early sessions Una, a brilliant fifteen-year-old, a born writer who came to Harlem from Panama five years ago, and only then discovered the conflict between races, asked me, “Mrs. Franklin, do you really and truly believe in God with no doubts at all?”

“Oh, Una, I really and truly believe in God with all kinds of doubts.”

But I base my life on this belief.”

That, by the way, is from L’Engle’s A Circle of Quiet. Another book by Madeleine L’engle: Anytime Prayers
