Be Scared World, I'm Part Of The Brain

Yesterday I made a decision I'm very excited about and wanted to share today.  I joined The Brains of a site that I've loved for a long time.  The site is Band Back Together.



The Band Back Together Project (The Band) was started in September 2010, by Becky Sherrick Harks.  You may know her from Mommy Wants Vodka.  Awhile back I wrote about her in this post.  


The Band began as a weblog and has grown into an incorporated business and eventually a non-profit organization


I'm excited to join The Band and want to promote Band Back Together today.  



Here is the mission:



“[…] a group weblog that provides educational 
resources, as well as a safe, moderated, supportive
environment to share stories of survival. Through  
the power of real stories written by real people,  
we can work together to remove the stigma  
from mental illness, abuse, rape, baby loss, and  
other traumas, so that we may learn, grow, and  
heal. All are welcome.


Becky's motto for the The Band is this:  We are none of us alone.


It's a simple statement but it is meaningful to someone in their darkest hour. 


If you ever need a resource, the band will find it if it's not already on the site. 


If you have something to write and share, so that others may not feel alone please click on this link to learn how to contribute.  One time I did:  Twenty-Two Pounds.


Now, I will leave you all to ponder how scary it is that I'm part of a brain.

We're so glad you're now a part of the brain. Unlike regular brains, this one just keeps getting better with age and every growth upon it.

We're lucky to have you. There can never be enough silly inside these Brains.

Good for you. Really.

I love when people give of themselves.

Hope for humanity yet?
I think so.
