Let me tell you a thing, about an amazing man named Patrick Stewart
I went to Comicpalooza this weekend and I was full of nervous energy as I was standing in line to ask Sir Patrick Stewart a question at his panel. I first had to thank him for a speech he had given at amnesty international about domestic violence towards women . I had only seen it a few months ago but I was still dealing with my own personal experience with a similar issue, and I didn’t know what to call it. After seeing Patrick talk so personally about it I finally was able to correctly call it abuse, in my case sexual abuse that was going to quickly turn into physical abuse as well. I didn’t feel guilty or disgusting anymore. I finally didn’t feel responsible for the abuse that was put upon me. I was finally able to start my healing process and to put that part of my life behind me.
After thanking him I asked him “Besides acting, what are you most proud of that you have done in you life (that you are willing to share with us)?”. Sir Patrick told us about how he couldn’t protect his mother from abuse in his household growing up and so in her name works with an organization called Refuge for safe houses for women and children to escape from abusive house holds. Sir Patrick Stewart learned only last year that his father had actually been suffering from PTSD after he returned from the military and was never properly treated. In his father’s name he works with an organization called Combat Stress to help those soldiers who are suffering from PTSD.
They were about to move onto the next question when Sir Patrick looked at me and asked me “My Dear, are you okay?” I said yes, and that I was finally able to move on from that part of my life. He then passionately said that his mother had done nothing to provoke his father and that even if she had, violence was never, ever a choice a man should make. That it is in the power of men to stop violence towards women. The moderator then asked “Do you want a hug?”
Sir Patrick didn’t even hesitate, he smiled, hopped off the stage and came over to embrace me in a hug. Which he held me there for a long while. He told me “You never have to go through that again, you’re safe now.” I couldn’t stop thanking him. His embrace was so warm and genuine. It was two people, two strangers, supporting and giving love. And when we pulled away he looked strait in my eyes, like he was promising that. He told me to take care. And I will.
Sir Patrick Stewart is an absolute roll model for men. He is an amazing man and was so kind and full of heart. I want to let everyone know to please find help if you are in a violent or abusive house hold or relationship. There are organizations and people ready to help. I had countless people after the panel thanking me for sharing the story and asking him those questions. Many said they went through similar things. You are not alone.

Hey, LOOK AT HOW CRAZY + AWESOME THIS IS!
This is the most wonderful gift from a friend that I’ve received in a long time! Thanks to dreamofelectricsheep who requested that Titus Andronicus play a show at Atlanta’s dearest Criminal Records for my sake. WHAAAAAAAT. LIFE IS SOOOO GOOD.
I was even really horrible and I actually couldn’t make the show… but I wish I could send kisses to everybody involved. :*
Criminal Records rocks and is a must see if you’re ever in Atlanta. Titus Andronicus rocks. dreamofelectricsheep rocks. Friends 4 ever. It’s totally true.
Also, follow me on twitter!

MY MOM SENT ME THIS AFTER I TOLD HER TO LOOK AT MY PICTURES OF MY BIKE IN COPENHAGEN
This message is important to me and I love you. I’m sorry that I kept it around because I selfishly like having a full inbox and seeing nice things.
It is a rare and wonderful thing to have a friend to talk so passionately about Christ with— and to laugh and tear up about all of our sin and imperfections in such light!
I’m going to email you to see if you’re free sometime soon, now. heh heh heh
Hi! Anonymous, I’m not sure who this is— but I hope that what I wrote was kind and gentle and encouraging. It’s good to know that it was sweet!
In high school I was far from being the best friend or person (and I still am)— so I’m sorry about all of those moments where I could have possibly written something not sweet or unkind. I regret failing as a friend, and I hope to distance myself from those failures.
But I’m glad that I surprised you! I would love to continue surprising my friends with my love for them!
I use my Galaxy S2!
Hey! I would love to!
I really like working off of themes! If you ever send me a mood or sensation or a “music kind of like this,” I’ll try really hard to come up with something for you! This kind of thing makes me excited!
TIMIA I WANT TO BE YOUR FRIEND
