YWCA

Wow.   Recently, on KFBB’s website there was a story about domestic violence and the holidays, and this picture of the YWCA’s sign was shown with it.   What emotion it brought back, especially this time of the year.   My dear mother, departed almost five years ago now, sought refuge there almost 40 years ago.  I managed to see her a few times there before she was able to get stable housing.  I don’t know how it’s possible, but the sign looks just the same as it did back them, amazing since it is exposed to the climate we know and love in Montana.  But even more amazing is that it is still there for women to get away from bad situations.  It makes me glad some things never changed back home.
