The pass few days have been horribly challenging: blisters, too much sun and a day lost to filing bureaucratic family court forms to simply survive being “in the system”.
The bulk of the next two weeks will be down Route 1; miles from anyone or anything.
Parental alienation and slanted court custody scenarios are about one thing: power. And the victims are made to believe they are powerless, worthless and alone.
Unlike many causes, simply speaking against the corruption could result is further reductions in custody, financial sanctions or the wrath of abusive exes getting their high off the system.
But here’s the thing: We aren’t alone.
We are hidden in the shadows in great numbers with a common story. Many fearful of speaking out. Many simply too crushed to speak on their own behalf. And that all needs to end.
I’m headed south towards Monterey. Today I’ll be alone again.
Except I’m not.
