November 24th – February 13th

I shouldn’t have left Halifax. What’s the likelihood of Blake killing my other half whilst I’m there? I’ve tried to hard to get into their heads and walk in their shoes. This is the only conclusion at which I can arrive.

I left my sister alone. She ended up murdered. I think the risk to reward ratio would be far too high if I were there. I would scream, fight, and protect.

That’s why I do the work I do. I owe it to her. I owe her my life.


About Homicide Survivor

The issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women has encompassed my life after the murder of my sister, Loretta Saunders, in February 2014. Loretta was studying the issue of #MMIWG for her thesis topic at the time of her death.
