Cheryl Ann Araujo is The Accuser. In 1983, she was victimized by men, the judicial system, the Government, the media, and the Portuguese mob because she stood up against them all in the Big Dan's rape trial in New Bedford, Massachusetts.In 1988, Jodie Foster portrayed a character loosely based on Cheryl Araujo in the Hollywood movie The Accused for which she won an Academy Award. Foster's character was gang raped on a pinball machine, rather than a pool table.But, by the time the movie was released Cheryl was already dead. After the rape trials, she was run out of Massachusetts due to death threats and in 1986, died in a single-car accident in South Florida. Her two young daughters were with her in the car and survived. They recall what happened that fateful day in this book.This is the true story about what the government and Hollywood do not want you to know regarding one young woman's fight as an accuser to tell her true story to a jury and to the world without being "victim blamed." Cheryl was one of the first accusers to face a camera in the courtroom shaping the way the media and judicial system covers rape trials today. Her grueling experience also planted the first seeds of today's burgeoning #MeToo movement.The book contains never before published information, interviews, and photographs about the life and death of Cheryl Araujo, one of the most tragic accusers and heroines in American history.

In her seventeen years, they have moved so often she gives up on ever making friends. Not only does she feel lost and alone, but her parents always argue about her. The constant fighting makes her believe the family will be happier if she were never born. As these thoughts bounce around in her mind, she is falling into deep, dark despair. The only thing that helps her cope is to retreat into her imagination.Her mother and father inform her and her sisters that they are moving. She thinks this will be a new start, which causes her heart to sing. Everyone else is anxious about the move. For her, this is a promise of new beginnings. With their things packed, they head to the docks to board the ship that will take them to their new home.She spends as much time as possible on deck, loving the sway of the ship and the spray of the sea on her face. Her parents and sisters spend most of the time in their rooms due to being seasick.One morning, she is on deck watching the dolphins, mesmerized by the beauty of their dance. Suddenly, there is something in the water with the dolphins. She rubs her eyes, thinking this cannot be real. She stares harder. Swimming with the dolphins is a man. She looks around, wondering where he has come from. There is no land or other ships in sight. Just as she is about to yell at the men on deck that there is a man overboard, he jumps over a dolphin, and she sees that he is not a man at all. The thing looks human, but instead of legs, it has a long green-and-purple fishtail with iridescent scales.

In this book, Relationship Sanity, my main point is to help people considering the marriage relationship really understand why they are getting married and also think about the bigger picture about being married. In other words, what is the purpose of this marriage for each person? It is my hope that this book would help somebody be more prepared when considering marriage. For me, the first thing to consider is to do a self-evaluation as to the reason you want to get married. Second, make sure you understand how complicated divorce is. In the book, I share some personal thoughts with hope to wrap up the book and allow the reader to have a better understanding of relationships. It is my desire to help people understand the reason they want to get married and help readers be more prepared for things when they consider getting married.
As we learn to grow, some stay boys, some grow to be men. I wrote this book to introduce myself to the world and to show people that no matter what you go through, you can always change.In Death of a Boy, Birth of a Man: Blue Sky, Heavy Rain, not every day is going to be perfect. But every day you wake up is a new challenge, a chance for new opportunities, a chance to forget about yesterday's dramas and focus on newer and better things. We are human. We fear. We fall. But the one thing that makes us different is that we never give up.Honestly, we've all been there. Hopefully, my writing this and sharing it with everyone can make a change in someone's life and help them refocus. As I said earlier, the book was made not only to introduce myself but also to remind both men and women that life is about growth. I hope everyone loves it, and I thank you for giving me this opportunity.Look for my next book, White Roses, Red Wine--another book of poetry for the grown and the love seekers.

This book is one of many to come from me. I'm hoping that this will lead me to be successful in the book world of readers and to the success of my new life. The poems are dedicated to everyone as something that was on my mind at that time of me dreaming. The songs--I'm hoping to have an artist sing them so that some of the proceeds can go to my company, One Nation Donation charity, and I can further my life with helping others in need. The first book is part of more to come, like my life experiences growing up. The hope and experience of music and poems give people a sense of joy and happiness. Always love family and friends.The author is interested in partnering with musicians to produce his songs.
This book is about my life before I lived on the road, what happened to me and all my mistakes when it came to doing drugs, and how a music artist named Colicchie and his music with such deep lyrics got me out and away from drug addiction. This book and the advice in it can get addicts off drugs no matter what the addiction is. It's also for people who don't do drugs but must read this, which is important.The main point of this book is vital to the world, and it teaches people that sometimes, you don't need a rehab center to get off drugs. The best therapy I ever got when it came to doing drugs was Colicchie's music, the song "e;Drug Addiction"e; parts 1 and 2. I pray that these will open more eyes when heard because without these two songs, I would not be here today. Being homeless and lost for so long, I would have been dead and never would become the man I am today. I'm proud to tell my story of how Colicchie's music saved my life and many others as well, and how to help people lost in addiction. I'm proud to give the world Colicchie's helping hand.

DARE TO DISCOVER!ForewordTo best describe my reasons for writing this book and why I hope many will read it, I chose the journalists' old standbys, 'Who, What, When, Where and Why:WHO -- YOU, of course! And, yes, ME. Because of my amazing success, which I owe, first of all, to my Grandmother Alda for keeping obituaries, which included Keziah Antrim's that you'll read more about in this Opening segment. YOU because I want more people to study their ancestry and become aware of their own unique history, of which 'story' is an important ingredient--one it takes dedication and persistence to discover as many individual stories as possible.WHAT -- 'What' can refer to your goal, i.e., how much do you want to include? 'What' may mean 'What do I do to get started,' or "e;What can I expect to learn? --both initially and as time goes by. Of course, the main reason to study genealogy is to document data concerning your ancestors. However, I am amazed at how much I am learning about history, and along with local and world history, the discovery of interesting and scenic places is an added blessing. Something I didn't expect is awareness of connections among surnames and residents, many even moving long distances together is both fascinating and helpful to the story you are able to create.WHEN -- Once you have established your first family tree, the question of when ancestors came to our great country, when descendants were born and died, etc. will become your concern; and as you add earlier ancestors, you will discover how many people of a certain surname share similar names. The comparison of birth and death dates then becomes critical.WHERE -- You might ask where a certain surname was first recorded; or where you can find profiles of particular family units--My Heritage helped greatly by sending matches of other clients' profiles that help us learn something one of us has discovered that is news to the other!WHY -- The most common answer to 'why?' is probably so you can pass family history on to your children or other family members. Since I've accumulated more than I ever thought possible, a thought came to me just this week. I'll share it with you, hoping if you are blessed with a great deal to share, you'll remember this advice--WRITE WHAT IT WOULD TAKE TOO LONG TO TELL! However, many more answers are equally important. One I wouldn't have expected to be so important to me is how much I'm learning about history! A simple one is that you may plan to travel somewhere in the world, and now you know which areas could mean most to you. A deeper result is being inspired by what your ancestors were able to accomplish even though life was much harder in earlier times than ours are today. HOW --Like most people, I would imagine, I started my family tree on paper only. Just by asking family members for their input, I was able to create a Family Tree with around 75 individuals. When my Grandma Alda died, however, I discovered she had obituaries of not only her own ancestors but those of my Grandpa Walter. You'll read more about his ancestors in the vignette entitled "e;About Those Antrims,"e;after the "e;How-To "e;section. It will give you a preview of what's in store for you in the vignettes that follow this "e;Opening"e; to "e;Dare to Discover"e;. I do hope you'll be inspired to leave a legacy to your descendants that they can leave for future generations. Judy Dimmick
