Beyond Words Live!
About This Show
Survivors have a story to tell. What happend in their lives, how they were able to change the outcome of their lives, and what resources may or may not have helped at the time. They may also share tidbits of what might have empowered them more so, had it existed at the time as well. This is their time to tell their story and share it with others, and perhaps serve as an inspiration to others who may be going through other similar situations.
#Project1000000Voices is my efforts to provide a platform for as many voices as possible - especially those who are survivors!

After immigrating to Queens, New York, Marisol has suffered alone and in silence at the hands of her abusive and cheating husband for years. Now pregnant with her second child, her desperation to save her young son and soon-expected daughter from this hell has reached its breaking point. The catalysts that finally make Marisol muster up the courage to escape are the words from her son, “Mom, get us out of here”, and the encouragement of her neighbor, Gladys. One night, she wakes her son while her husband is asleep. They escape with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Marisol is all alone in a new country with no means of support, but she knows she must find the strength to make a better future for her children.
