My Final Breath By Paige Dearth


 
Listen up Paige Dearth fans, My Final Breath is out. It is available on Amazon, Kindle unlimited, and book stores. I read this book in 2 days, that's how good this book is! But lets be honest here, I have read every book that the author has written at least twice. You automatically connect to the protagonist in every book that Paige has written, plus you also get a sense of visioning what exactly is happening in this book. The lead character is Molly, a victim of her Mother's sick mind. I will not give it away but this book is so well written and it keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole book. It also creates a child abuse awareness. There is all types besides physical abuse. There is mental, verbal, sexual and neglect all which Paige has incorporated in her books. I discovered my love of her writing while I was reading her book titled One Among Us. Which I proudly have a personalized autographed copy of! This book was no different, Paige's writing creates awareness. Thanks to Paige and her work, she has inspired me to advocate for missing and exploited children, especially the sex-trafficked ones. The author writes from heart and soul which you can feel from her work. I have a list of her books, you can click on the link to take you to get your copy.

Paige Dearth with Her-Community2,  Catherine


Just a quick backstory, I met Paige after I had read her book, One among us. I was hooked on her work. Still my favorite book, I have read 5 times, no lie! Plus, I highly recommend that book, do not let the 650 pages discourage you, you will literally be into this book and will not want to put it down. So I found Paige Dearth on social media, also where her fans can see her page along with her books. Long story short we became friends. I admire her for so many reasons, she is inspiring,she is  an advocate for child abuse, and just a wonderful soul.. Also what I love about her books is that they correlate between 2 different books, you will notice that when you read them, kinda like a continuation of the story so you can see how the characters transpire. Believe like a child was Paige's first book, so I will be rereading this again. Its kinda like a good movie you don't mind watching again and again. I read my books on my kindle (yes, the original) and subscribe to Kindle unlimited, for $9.99 a month, with that I have access to many books. So whether you are spending the day at the beach or just curling up on your couch, grab a Paige Dearth book and let your imagination take you to place you haven't been before. Hopefully with reading her books, you will become a fan like me and inspire to help children who are voiceless and create awareness of the evil that these kids face.

You were not born a racist, you were taught.

Racism. One word, but it is a topic that most cannot seem to talk about without spewing derogatory hate speech that they believe isn't derogatory. Make sense? Of course not, but that's not your fault entirely. Society and corporations have pretty much put in our minds subliminally that other races are inferior to the White race. You wouldn't notice that cause the racism is not toward you. I know, I am one of those people unknowingly. Once you open your eyes, you see it, kinda like IF YOU DONT KNOW, NOW YOU KNOW type of thing. For example, corporations are now announcing to make changes to their products that have black stereotypes on their products. That's huge! Like Aunt Jemima, Cream of wheat and  Uncle Ben's. We grew up with these brands and loved them, but it depicts a race as inferior to the white race. I never thought of that but I realized it when they made the announcement  acknowledging it and make the change, I totally agree! The ones that do not see that are completely ignorant. Also the L'Oreal Group has announced that they will remove all words white/whitening, fair/fairness, light lightening from all it's skin products. This company faced a backlash when following a post on Twitter stating it "stands in solidarity with the Black community, and injustice of any kind." That post had comments accusing the company of hypocrisy when British model Munroe Bergdolf from it's brand in 2017, following comments she made about systemic racism. Now this is a huge deal because if you didn't know that L'Oreal is the parent company that owns the following, Maybelline New York, Garnier, LancĂ´me, Helena Rubinstein, Biomedic,Vichy, Dermablend, and so many others! That these stereotypes, all though not meant to be racists, they did put the subliminal message to all about race and its public take on it. I would have to agree that companies and corporations take a fresh look and  update their logo's that depict Black American's negatively. I am Hispanic, my parents didn't teach us about racism. So we grew up pretty melancholy. I remember the first time I even learned about racism against African Americans, does anyone remember the restaurant Sambo's???? OMG I remember feeling sick to my stomach and not to mention horrified what their  name was about. In case you didn't know, Sambo's restaurant is a combination of the founder's names, they soon found themselves associated with The story of little black Sambo. The founders capitalized on that connection and used that as a theme for their restaurants! No lie! The restaurant began in 1957 in Santa Barbara, California. That chain was eventually years later sold to Denny's. You do realized that the restaurant has a very racist past. They have had a racist past for over 30 years. They refused to seat black people by having them wait while others  were seated.Also in California (my home state) had black people pay for their meals in advanced and a "cover charge."  They were fined 54 million dollars for these practices. Denny's has tried to bury their racial discrimination, but honestly all you have to do is do a google search and BAM there it is. So we have to change, stand up and demand change. How?? DO NOT TOLERATE IT. It is that simple. Participate in change, join a organization thast supports anti racial behavior. We all have to live together and what better way than in harmoy? I am not just a doer but a dreamer as well. I hope this blog post is at least insightful and informational.
Take care

Peace and Love
