In Honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month: A True Story of survival, recovery and healing from domestic violence, marital rape, spiritual and ritual abuse, and judicial injustice in Dallas, Oregon, Polk County.
Tim King, Editor and War Correspondent, Salem-News.com , http://salem-news.com is an advocate for women, victims, and wounded soldiers. In his publication of my personal holocaust and life story (see http://bonshea.com ), Tim King writes:
(SALEM, Oregon)- "Just when you though you knew what was going on in your community, here comes a story that just may shatter the security of your American Dream. This is a story about abuse, survival, false religion and dubious court systems in a state that may be advanced on some levels, but sometimes proves to be a miserable failure in terms of equity and fairness and conventional thinking.
"No aspect of the system worked the way it was supposed to for her, and as long as Coral remains banned from her children and railroaded by a court and law enforcement system that ignores marital rape charges, then her case stands as a measurement gauge for the entire state of Oregon. Nothing about the system is any better than the people it leaves behind in the rubble." - Tim King, Salem-News
"This article is easily portraying the most disturbing series of events I have seen happen to any one person. How injustice can occur at so many corners and in so many flavors to this woman is, quite frankly, unbelievable in 2007. The opening may appear like any other husband emotionally abusing his wife...but what happens when the system does the same?" - Newsvine.com
