Elizabeth Herd – Sean’s Voice
My name is Elizabeth Herd.
I have a Myspace page titled Sean’s Voice. This page is in honor of my sweet grandson, Sean Michael Sowards who was tortured, abused and neglected leading to his murder by his own mother when he was just two and half years old. It was in June of 2007 (just last year) that we had to say good bye and bury this precious angel. This woman not only abused Sean, but also abused my son, Sean’s daddy over the eight years they were together.
It has been a very devastating year to my family as you can imagine, since we were unaware of the abuse. We have learned a lot! Because and through this tragedy, I have become a voice for the abused, Sean’s Voice, and have been fortunate to find friends who were touched enough by hearing Sean’s story, that a petition has been started in his honor. The petition is an effort to get legislation passed that would help our men in abusive relationships the same way that it now provides for women. As I’m sure you know, there are very few, if any, institutions or agencies who offer help to our men. Men who try to get out of these abusive relationships, but also who try to protect their children by getting them out as well. I am confident that if there had been such programs available, my son would have been able to protect his son… and himself.
I am writing to you today to ask for your support… to please view this petition and add your signature to this cause. My hope is that you would also pass this link on to all (perhaps post it on your site) so that everyone will have this opportunity to help protect our men and our children.
Thank you very much for your time, and hopefully your support. May God bless you.
