I am forwarding a message at the request of Kim Duckett, Ph.D., Pr. (aka WomanWhoFollowsHerHeart) is founder and Priestess of WHISPER, a non-profit organization, and affiliate of the Reformed Congregation of the Goddess, now in its 12th year, that offers classes, events, performances, and rituals that explore and honor women’s spirituality, and particularly, feminist and goddess spiritualities. She is also the Director of WHISPER’s Sacred Mystery School for Women, one of just a few formal programs of its kind in the country, which includes monthly celebrations honoring the Seasons of the natural world (also known as the Wheel of the Year) and the corresponding “seasons of women’s lives.”
Kim is requesting our magical assistance and support. Please take a look at Kim’s article “I am Amazon” http://wnc-woman.com/0804amazon.html for additional inspiration.
In Sisterhood and Solidarity, Letecia

Please read the following with care for yourselves. It is hard news…
I write with great sadness and fury. If you have not heard already, under the list of “crimes” being committed against those “trapped” in the Dome in New Orleans, is that women and girls are being raped…
Annette sent me a short e-mail this a.m. saying that during an interview with a woman who was in the Dome, she said, at the end “and women and girls are being raped.” The interviewer said: “really?” and that was the end of that news clip.
Wimmin, I am sorry to hurt you with this news AND I ask that we DO SOMETHING about it and with our feelings. Create an altar, literally or in your heart/head, and put protection around the wimmin and girls in that place. Imagine that each is protected, that for some reason they are not harmed, that they become invisible to those who would hurt them and visible to those who can protect and help and to us on the outside (i.e don’t make them “invisible”/not seen by us). Although I know you may join me in rage and fury, let us focus that energy on the protection of these beings NOW. We can work on/with what else may be done later….regarding those who are taking this moment to harm those in this particular way, who have just been through devastation and loss.
Please, ACT at your altars. We are strong Wimmin, and we are “safe” right now and can help those who are not/vulnerable.
Please share this with wimmin of a like mind.
If you are in disagreement with this, in any way, please, just ignore, i.e please do not send negative energy toward me/us as we do this work.
