Twenty-five years ago, Danielle Osborne-Brown had a fateful meeting in Denny’s on the Golden Mile.

She served her regulars, as usual, but bore the marks of domestic violence. Jokes were made about her falling down the stairs again.

Didn’t this fundraiser used to feature men walking in high heels? I seem to remember it was a real thing for local “celebrity” men to come out and march for this worthy cause.

It was, and some still do, seven. However, the cause is now against all abuse by their intimate partners. Look at the sign the woman at the left is carrying.

Believe in or not, FOX…yes FOX Channel 5 this morning featured the Drag Running in High Heels Race. Yes FOX. Please address all indignant complaints to Rupert Murdoch for poisoning your children’s minds. 👠👠

What a truly inspiring event for a completely inexcusable situation. There is never a reason to lay hands on a spouse with anything other than affection. These women have found their power. May many more find the same.
