Sheltering at Home Reflections: To the Brave Women of Hollywood, Thank you. By: Misa Hopkins & Kristian Strang
April’s focus on Sexual Assault Awareness has us in gratitude to the women who have paved the way for us all.
When social worker Tarana Burke started the #metoo movement, made famous by Alyssa Milano’s tweet, it opened the space for many more of us to heal from our sexual trauma and abuse in a way that had not been fully available before.
We know that for this abuse to end – and we hold firmly in our hearts that it will end – and for it to no longer be the tragedy thousands experience, we must shine the light on those who have bravely shared their truth, while also going deeper into our own healing.
It’s in healing that the cycle of abuse can end.
In the midst of the global news of the pandemic coronavirus, fear and panic are in the air. With the government and business closures, financial hardships are being felt across the world. However, my message remains consistent—we control our destiny with our beliefs, thoughts, actions, and desires.

Although we inherit our DNA from our families and ancestors, we are unique individuals. We all look, sound, act, and think differently from anyone else. Our purpose in life is to find our Divine identity and special place in this world. You are like no other. Trust your instincts. Trust your desires to fulfill your destiny and purpose. You choose your life, your purpose, your happiness. It is in your hands. Be yourself.

A person we deeply and truly love, respect, hear, and desire now and in the future. A deeply passionate, affectionate, caring, and nurturing relationship that is interdependent. A relationship that is supportive, while allowing each person to have their identity and fulfill their purpose.

Carl Sandburg said, “Nothing happens unless first a dream.” We must dream a new reality and what better way to begin than with ourselves? We are always changing and evolving as we grow and age. I think of my life as chapters in my own story. Not necessarily in decades because life isn’t that predictable.
