Un día para las mariposas: Día Internacional no violencia Contra la Mujer.

El 25 de noviembre se conmemoró el día internacional de la no violencia contra la mujer. Este día fue decretado en 1999, aunque cabe destacar que ya desde 1981, varios militantes en favor del derecho de la mujer conmemoraban este como el día internacional por la no violencia contra la mujer.

¿Por qué esta fecha? Pues, en Honor a las tres heroínas de nuestro país (República Dominicana), quienes fueron asesinadas por la dictadura de Rafael Trujillo, en la década de los 60.

Mujeres Valientes, en contra de un régimen que oprimía a su pueblo. Patria, Minerva y Maria Teresa serán recordadas por siempre.

A continuación un texto que encontré hace mucho por ahí y me gustó mucho el mensaje que transmite. Aprovecho para decirles que debemos procurar ser lazos de amor y solidaridad entre todos, y que a cada ser humano lo tratemos como tal, a veces se complica, pues estamos en un sistema que nos invita a crear un ambiente totalmente en contra de la armonía colectiva.
Besos y ahí les dejo.

I Got Flowers Today... By Paulette Kelly

I got flowers today.
It wasn't my birthday or any other special day.
We had our first argument last night,
And he said a lot of cruel things that really hurt me.
I know he is sorry and didn't mean the things he said.
Because he sent me flowers today.
I got flowers today.
It wasn't our anniversary or any other special day.
Last night, he threw me into a wall and started to choke me.
It seemed like a nightmare.
I couldn't believe it was real.
I woke up this morning sore and bruised all over.
I know he must be sorry.
Because he sent me flowers today.
I got flowers today,
And it wasn't Mother's Day or any other special day.
Last night, he beat me up again.
And it was much worse than all the other times.
If I leave him, what will I do?
How will I take care of my kids?
What about money?
I'm afraid of him and scared to leave.
But I know he must be sorry.
Because he sent me flowers today.
I got flowers today.
Today was a very special day.
It was the day of my funeral.
Last night, he finally killed me.
He beat me to death.
If only I had gathered enough courage
and strength to leave him,
I would not have gotten flowers...today.
