It is tough enough for a victim of domestic violence to struggle with being in an emotional, mental and/or physical form(s) of domestic violence, but to also struggle with the religious beliefs as well can be a whole another story, especially as the victim asks oneself, “Why? If there is truly a God out there, why am I being harmed? What did I do so bad to deserve such a wretched life?”, along with many other questions. The victim is pushed into believing that they deserve to be harmed and that there is no one, not even a God, that could save them.

Check out this posting on the Domestic Violence tab/page and see what I mean. Also, see what some people are actively doing out there to change things where domestic violence victims can feel welcomed to seek refuge — even in the Church!

Healthcare Notes « Worldly Inquiring Mind “iWIM” 😀

It frustrates me to no end that health care is available to those “haves” and not so much to the “have nots”.  By “haves”, I mean that those are the folks who are able to qualify for health insurance through their employer and/or afford to pay for it on their own or they have a low enough income to qualify for medicaid and/or medicare insurance.  The “have nots” are all those lost souls who don’t have employers offering them health insurance benefits because it is either too small of a company and/or they are employed as “part-time” even if they work full-time hours.  They are also those who make too much money to qualify for any assistance program or medicaid/medicare.

It is a pet-peave of mind with absolute certainty.  As such, I am seeking out stories from other people who have stories to tell about seeking out the quality of health care that should be available to everyone regardless of their income level.  It should be a matter of a humanistic concern for the next human being rather than an issue over money.

I am looking forward to hearing more from you.
