Is There Healing?

The family of Jamie Rose Bolin is now left with a daunting task.

How do they pick up their lives and move forward?

How do they overcome this life-changing tragedy?

Jamie's friends are faced with an emotional trauma and painful memory also.

How will those children overcome the emotions that are associated with her violent death?

The peacefulness of the neighborhoods of Purcell, Oklahoma, has been shattered.

Will they regain what they have lost?

The family of Kevin Ray Underwood has been dealt a heavy blow also.

What has he done to his family?

Will these people be able to heal from these traumatic wounds?

Does the pain ever subside and do the wounds ever close?

Shelly had a childhood friend whose life was taken by violence.

A young and vibrant voice that had been silenced at a very young age.

Her name was Michelle.

Now Michelle has a voice.

Shelly has created a new website called Justice of the Dawn.

She states on her blog,
"After a discussion I was having over on TJ's site, I decided to create a webpresence for the child victims of violence."

Shelly has done a lot of work in 24 hours to pull this website together.

Justice of the Dawn is a webpresence created solely to tell the story and be the voice of the child victims of violence. It was born out of my own need to tell the story of my childhood best friend, Dawn Michelle Stanley.

After 25 years...

Wounds are still healing.

God Bless you Shelly.

Is there healing? Yes, there is healing, but it isn't the kind of healing where our lives go on.

We never forget these lives cut so so short.

Thank you for the links, and yes, it is fine for you to use the pictures.

Thanks for posting this, TJ. Shel never said a word about what she was doing. The site really looks good.

Thank you though Shelly.

Thanks Shelly.

You're welcome Moof.

Hang in there Peggikaye.

It's a *good* thing.

I believe that "Justice of the Dawn" will help a whole lot of people.

You are doing a wonderful thing, keeping this issue in the spotlight...and to inspire someone else to take up a torch for a sad but important cause...
