    Caring and awareness are great help. And sign the petition!!! (https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/formally-investigate-transphobic-violence-leading-rising-death-toll-transgender-women-color-us-0)

    Fact is, murder is mostly committed by people who know each other. I know little about the Phoenix murder but I would expect that the murderer and Kandis knew each other somehow.

    My mom’s younger brother was in transition. My dad had him / her arrested when he / she was visiting us (many years ago – 1960s). A few years later, a family member murdered my uncle and his / her wife and successfully made it appear double-suicide. Police investigators did not care because my uncle was in transition and they had no interest investigating that kind of case.

    The last time I saw my mom as she departed from a visit (1992), she pulled her .22 on me and told me she could kill me any time; she failed many times when I was a child. I prayed for her, not my safety. I pray for her since her death (2002); she died embittered.

    These murders continue that ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ scenario.

  2. Dear Kira,
    As usual, I liked the post….even though I do not like the information. However, awareness is crucial to causing change. Keep up the good work, and keep up with your creative self …. your writing and other art. You are a very talented person.
