Celebrating Aunt Christine-PLEASE READ



This is a sad story but one I have written several times because there is a lesson in tragedy. Aunt Christine was married with 5 children when an altercation took place and tragically she was killed by her husband. Ladies, although I was only a small child when her life was taken I felt the need to send her story out and have many times to plead with women who are involved in hurful relationships. This should have been a good story for a woman who was beautiful, a gorgeous woman in fact. She should have been here to be with her young children but because alcohol, guns and abuse do not mix her life was taken at a time that it never should have been. What a loss to this family. If you know of someone who is in a bad relationship please help. Do not stand by and wonder. Make changes. You may be the only voice your friend has. When I hear the song by Stevie Wonder and Babyface it makes me think of Aunt Christine and how terribly sad it was that her life ended in such a way and so early. Please see the words to this song and remember my words so that in case you are ever wondering, you will then reach out to help someone who may be looking for a lifeline. I celebrate you today Aunt Christine!

There was a girl I used to know
She was oh so beautiful
But she's not here anymore
She had a college degree
Smart as anyone could be
She had so much to live for
But she fell in love
With the wrong kinda man
He abused her love and treated her so bad
There was not enough education in her world
That could save the life of this little girl

How come, how long
It's not right, it's so wrong
Do we let it just go on
Turn our backs and carry on
Wake up, for it's too late
Right now, we can't wait
She won't have a second try
Open up your hearts
As well as your eyes

She tried to give a cry for help
She even blamed things on herself
But no one came to her aid
Nothing was wrong as far as we could tell
That's what we'd like to tell ourselves
But no, it wasn't that way
So she fell in love
With the wrong kinda man
And she paid with her life
For loving that man
So we cannot ignore,
We must look for the signs
And maybe next time we might save
somebody's life

How come, how long
It's not right, it's so wrong
Do we let it just go on
Turn our backs and carry on
Wake up, for it's too late
Right now, we can't wait
She won't have a second try
Open up your hearts
As well as your eyes

I on occasion met that guy
It's been a feeling deep inside
Some ... wasn't right
The way he proves himself a man
By beating his woman with his hands
Oh I wish that she'd seen the light
How can someone like that call himself a man
He's not a man
Soon reality ...
And we cannot ignore
Whenever we see the signs
'Cause any kind of abuse
God knows, it's a crime

How come, how long
It's not right, it's so wrong
Do we let it just go on
Turn our backs and carry on
Wake up, for it's too late
Right now, we can't wait
She won't have a second try
Open up your hearts
As well as your eyes

  1. I deal with domestic violence on a daily basis at my job. A huge lesson and wake-up call to be learned.
