4th Official Cut-Throat Award – 3/9/2014

Today’s Beautiful Discovery

My fourth Cut Throat Award:

Knows who she is. Was. Won’t Be Anymore.

Her blog gave me the chills because some of the sentences she writes mirror my own from the former life that she and I share in common. She is much newer in her recovery from terroristic, physical trauma, and she is so much stronger than I was at that point of my own journey – her strength is inspiring – the grip she has on her situation is amazing I’m proud to know of the progress she continues to make in her recovery from the awful circumstances she left behind her. Welcome to the Cut-Throats

Sunshine at

Here, you will read why she’s being acknowledged here;

Below is something from her blog:

“Now how the hell am I supposed to tell a Judge how it has really impacted my life if I have to be fucking politically correct about it? Was that bastard being “considerate” towards me when he terrorized and abused me?  So why the hell should I watch my words? Maybe I should draw a picture…”

“The red is my ANGER, the black is my HEART and the grey is my BRAIN. How’s that for an impact?  Hmm, not bad, I think I should put more RED. 🙂

The emphasis that I would like to place on the above excerpt is on the very end of the quoted statement above…


that – my friends (and enemies, alike); is the heart of a Cut-Throat Survivor.

Hat’s off to a new-found ray of Sunshine…

Welcome. 🙂

    Reblogged this on A Victims Journal and commented:
    I am proud and dumbfounded at the same time by this award. The reason being the amazing survivor that is honouring me – Americana Injustica – When I read her story I had to pause many times because my heart was hurting for her. I could feel her pain through her words. Her story is a horrific one compared to mine. My abuser could have pulled the trigger of that gun but did not for reasons unknown. She was not so lucky the day her abuser slashed her throat but she survived. She survived to become yet another strong voice in the fight against domestic violence. I am humbled by this and thank her for being here and sharing her life.
