Don’t be a victim!

     I recently have been in contact with several women who are involved in trying to make something powerful happen in our community.
     I know we think we live in small town USA, and that violent crimes (especially random ones) don’t happen here, but they, in fact, do. And, besides that, do you not travel to the big, scary city every now and then?
     Women in our community have been assaulted, and we even have occurrences in which their attacker was NOT someone they knew. So, don’t kid yourself that something as terrible as a rape couldn’t happen to you because you live here.
     Local Sensei Debbie Fudge is offering a women’s self-defense seminar, taught by women FOR women. The date is Saturday, Feb. 23rd from 9 am to noon at the Omak school of Karate.
     I suggest inviting your daughter into going with you, too, especially if she is headed off to college soon! Or, if you know any other young ladies, pass on the info to them, too!
     Registration is $40 if registered by Feb. 20th, and $50 if after. If you are interested in taking the class, call 509-322-0802.
