Writers Block

Dear Amanda,

It appears  from looking at the date of my last write that I haven’t written on this blog since December of 2015.  That’s a long time for me to stay silent but then again, I have been using my real voice in telling your story and what your story has become.  I am thinking that it is time to get going again and to try and catch up on everything that has happened this past year.  Too much really and I can’t possibly write it all down.  What I do know is that your name, your You Tube video and your story continues to draw attention all around the world.  I have also found it hard to write due to the fact that the haters and trolls out there who are ready to pounce on anything containing your name have been a negative effect on my thinking process.  Talking about putting out a fire.  But after the latest episode with the Suicide Squad meme, I have to say out loud – ‘To hell with that’.  So subsequently, I will start to write again.  The stories may be out of sync but it doesn’t really matter.  Know that I will dedicate each and every write to you Amanda, my forever daughter.

Love Mom  xoxo

    I agree, keep writing because I love to see how much you feel about her. You also posted this on my birthday.
