Rising Steelers Star William Gay, On Intimate Partner Violence

Here we go: Pittsburgh’s Going to the Superbowl.

Thanks to William Gay.   His touchdown in the last game cinched a tense, drawn-out conflict.  The cornerback also tops the list of Rising Sports Stars to watch in February, 2011.

When Mr. Gay  was eight years old, his stepfather murdered his mother.  Although his grief and rage might have driven him to despair, his inner strength–the quality that makes him truly manly, and great, saw him through.

Watch and listen to his amazing story here, and here:

  1. I I had started a women’s ministry against domestic violence (Enough) a Min. for women that have been abused and battered as myself.

        1. Hello Flora:

          I’ve responded to you a couple of times through ordinary email, but will also do so here. I would be pleased to speak at your conference. Thank you, again, for inviting me! Since I will be leaving the country in less than a month, I suspect that it will be difficult to schedule a time that works for both of us. I was under the impression that you had already staged this conference? Have you not yet done so? Where will it be? When do you expect it to take place? How many people do you expect to attend?

I had written a book on my life how I survived an abusesive relationship. i hope you can scedule a time you can speak. Thank you so much. Flora
