On May 8, 2010, I originally interviewed Laurie Allen.  Please join us as we relive that show.  

"Unbelievable turn of circumstances is a great way to describe Laurie who will be talking to us today. I have been enjoying getting to know Laurie and learning more about what she is doing today with her role at Private Quarters (an organization supporting domestic violence survivors) and part of a documentary in progress called BY A THREAD, as well as her personal experiences involved in domestic violence and why she has been so adamant to advocate for change. She states that she is on a mission to share her story as how she became safe in her own skin, as well as just her story of domestic violence on a whole. There is a certainly level of abuse and violence that women hear about on the news, in the obituaries, the obvious and repeated, daily and nightly abuse; however, there is another level of abuse that is hidden, forgotten about and not on the radar because it may not be thought of as "that bad". At what point does it have to be "bad" to do something about it, after all? What about those less than obvious signs that lead you down a path of abuse and violence that young and mature women don't understand and don't know to look for? Those are the masses we need to reach and educate, speak to and empower!"  http://www.blogtalkradio.com/oralhistory/2010/05/08/beyond-words-live--meet-laurie
