Love and Rage is Launched during the 16 Days of Activism

Earlier this week, the Women’s Department in collaboration with its partner agencies launched the 2019 Sixteen Days of Activism to highlight the issue of gender-based violence. A number of activities will be held during that time. But today at the Leo Bradley Library in Belize City, Belizean American author Tricia Logan launched her book, Love and Rage. The book details Logan’s life story, living in an abusive relationship and being beaten constantly to the brink of her death. She survived and is now living a new life, married with children. Logan officially launched the book in Belize with the hopes that women would read it and make the decision to no longer suffer in silence.

Tricia Logan, Author, Love & Rage

“I want Belize to change the law and once a complaint is made, follow through. I want to advocate for these women that are scared, don’t have a voice. I am if you need me. Even if I am in Los Angeles, you can reach out to me; my Facebook is open. I’ve had several persons from out here that reached out to me. While I was on the show this morning, I’ve already got several people that have reached out. And I can listen to you; I won’t judge you. I am here for you if you need me. But the first step that we need to do is change this law in Belize. I truly believe if we do that, we would save a lot of women. Getting out was when I was laying on the hospital bed and the doctor said one inch more to your temple and you wouldn’t be here today. That made me reflect what was going to happen to my children. I wouldn’t be here for them if I stayed and that was what made me reflect. The words of that doctor made me open my eyes and say how can I love someone more than myself. I actually love my kids more than I love my self right, but that’s where it started. How could someone love you like that? Your skin is black and blue, your eyes swollen. How can you have someone touch you and say I love you? Look at that. I just want you to close your eyes and look at that and say, how can that person love me and have me like this? There is no way in hell that I would have any man touch me like that again. I would hope that these women would think about that. They don’t love you if they hit you.”
