BE ALL YOU CAN BE
Step out into the cool night air. Look at the stars. See how they shine. Know that is is okay for you to shine, too.
Who told you you had to hold back? Who told you your gifts, your talents, your beauty, [your sexuality]–your natural, beautiful, loving, delightful self–was wrong? Who told you not to be all you could be? Maybe, as some suggest, we’ve gotten too comfortable focusing on our flaws, our errors, our dark side. Perhaps its not our dark side we fear. Perhaps, we’re really afraid of our gifts, our brilliance, our light.
Now is a time of light. It’s time for us to shine. We’ve worked hard for ourselves, death with our issues, gone back to the past. We’ve learned our lessons well. The reasons to hold back and hide away are no longer there. Enjoy the fruits of your labors.
Be all you can be, and enjoy being that. Don’t hold back. Use your gifts with joy. Use your talen=ts. Let your light shine for all the world to see. Melody Beattie

LOOK AT THE STARS…LOOK HOW THEY SHINE FOR YOU AND EVERYTHING YOU DO…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MwjX4dG72s

What if you think your a victim of date rape drugs?: http://www.justthinktwice.com/consequences/your_drink_is_drugged.html



Here is a shocking statistic: Every two minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted…one of the biggest problems is the rising use of date rape drugs at parties. http://www.americanowners.com/story/19896754/more-rapists-using-drugs-on-victims

Sex offenders comprise an extremely heterogeneous population.

There is no typical profile of a rapist, but they share some common characteristics.

Sex offenders are overwhelmingly male, typically have access to consensual sex, and were not sexually or physically abused as children.

Men are more likely to commit sexual violence in communities where sexual violence goes unpunished.

Sex offenders are experts in rationalizing their behavior.

Cross-cultural studies of rape identify the following factors as contributors to sexual violence: sex-role socialization, rape myths, lack of sanctions for abuse, male peer group support, pornography, adversarial sexual beliefs, lack of empathy, and all-male membership groups such as fraternities and sports teams.

Alcohol abuse has been identified as a strong correlate of college rape.

In a study on male sexual coercion, 23% of college men admitted to getting a date drunk or stoned to engage in sexual intercourse.

Alcohol can be a disinhibitor and increase sexual impulsivity, as well as lower women’s detection of risk and impair their ability to resist assault.

Intercourse cannot be consensual when the woman is incapacitated due to intoxication. http://sopac.umich.edu/article/196

Women can be sedated by date rape drugs. So-called “date rape” or predator drugs have sedative, hypnotic and an amnesic effect. http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2013/09/26/date-rape-drug-suspected-after-san-rafael-bar-patron-assaults

BE AWARE OF PREDATOR WHO PREY ON INNOCENCE. What is more innocent than being out with friends and having a couple drinks. But predators are in our midst and they can without you seeing put GHB in your drink and make you completely vulnerable and at their mercy. BRING AWARENESS TO EVERY SITUATION.

“It’s not that person who is hiding in the bushes, and it’s not necessarily some weirdo in the bar dropping drugs into someone’s drink,” Peacott-Ricardos said. “It could be somebody that you know and that you know very well, who is crossing that line into sexual violence.”

As many of you know, I have been writing a novel, SHADOW DANCE by Cat Lynn BoyleShadow Dance, based on a GHB poisoning in 1999 that took my daughter’s life.

The title of the novel has been edited from Alchemy of A Shadow Dance to “Shadow Dance,” and it will soon be linked here so you may read my story. Shadow Dance has had its first edit but I anticipate more intensive editing before I can submit the story to publishers. I look forward to your comments once I post it here.



Your going out, its New Years. Don’t go out alone. Be Smart. Be Safe. Don’t let down your guard because predators are out there watching and waiting for you to slip up and leave your drink unattended, or they watch to see when you’ve drank too much alcohol and aren’t paying attention to who is bringing you a drink. It can happen so fast. Alchemy of A Shadow Dance 12 22 2013 – MASTERMy daughter went to a private party at a music studio and was never seen alive again because of a predator spiking her drink with GHB. It can happen to you. Make sure your party plans include your very best friends and relatives who will watch out for you.



GHB (Gamma Hydroxybutyrate) blasted into my life on Easter Sunday 1999, leaving in its path an indelible stain on my heart. Its stain seeped into my life while speaking on the phone to a triage nurse in a hospital emergency room across the country who had attended to my daughter who had been brought to the hospital dead-on-arrival from GHB poisoning. This blog site i.e., The Skylar Lynn Ringland Date Rape Awareness Foundation, as you may have read, is written in honor of my daughter.

Since my daughter’s GHB induced death resulting from a predator spiking a drink she ingested, I have researched, analyzed, monitored, studied and written about the effects, implications and devastation of GHB as a phenomenon that is not limited by borders, race, religion, gender, or age (http://www.firstcoastnews.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=5067). GHB is easily made and easily stored and transported. It can be made in anyone’s kitchen from ingredients found at any hardware store, or it can easily be obtained on the street from black market dealers. GHB is proliferous largely due to full-scale production efforts in China. Consequently, it is abundantly available despite legislative and legal efforts to curtail its use, manufacture and distribution. To many in the club and rave scene it is the preferred drug of choice eclipsing ecstasy. http://goaskalice.columbia.edu/ghb-aka-liquid-ecstasy

GHB is poison to the human body. It can and will induce death at random dosing levels. What may kill one may not kill another 100 (http://www.erowid.org/chemicals/ghb/ghb_effects.shtml). GHB dosing is like playing Russian Roulette. One never knows quite when the body will literally melt down and completely suppress the central nervous system(http://www.drugfree.org/drug-guide/ghb). It is odorless, tasteless, and undetectable when mixed with another beverage. If GHB is mixed with alcohol it has a synergistic effect that is often fatal. (http://dancesafe.org/drug-information/ghb It is portable and can be stored in small vials and containers making dispensing often undetectable to the human eye. It is a predator’s drug of choice rendering victims physically helpless and unconscious and with generally no memory of their predator.

What is it that makes human beings ignore all the counter indications of the poisonous, often fatal effects of GHB? Therein lies the enigma. What is a human being hoping to find or, perhaps, hoping to escape that it seeks pleasure in a deadly poisonous substance like GHB? The research indicates that primarily people use GHB for its relaxation properties. For those who self-dose, it begs the question, don’t human beings have abundant choices to induce relaxation without having to resort to poison. Does this choice indicate a lack of imagination? Does it indicate supercharged planet of people with sensory overload such that they will resort to poisons to calm frayed nerves to ease into social settings. Isn’t it like cutting off your head to cure a headache? Cutting off your foot to cure a hang nail? GHB represents an extreme.

GHB is a twentieth century phenomenon that has seeped its way into the twenty-first century. WE will not be free of GHB by declaring War on Drugs or War on GHB. We be will only be free of GHB and all other drugs when human beings raise their consciousness and become aware that at their core they are one creative being connected to the entire universe. Human beings are powerful and capable of achieving any state of consciousness including a calm, relaxed, peaceful self. Success is not about how much money is in your bank account, or how many toys, degrees, honors, etc., you can accumulate, how popular you are, etc. Success is how much peace you feel inside at any given moment. To be at peace is the goal of humankind. Today, try to resonate with the peace that is always available to you in any given moment. Journey inside and learn to sit quietly with your core peaceful self. Give yourself love today and every day. Remember that everything you need in life, you came with…it was a part of the package known as you. Believing that there is something out there that can make you more of anything is illusion! You are a perfect being. Be at peace.

NOTE: I will be publishing, first, on this blog, by the end of the year, Alchemy of A Shadow Dance 12 22 2013 – MASTERAlchemy of A Shadow Dance, a story about the tragic effects of GHB on one family.

{November 1, 2013}   REPORTING DATE RAPE

WHY WILL MEN RAPE AN UNCONSCIOUS BODY??? WHY DO MEN THINK THEY ARE PART OF A CLUB WHERE IT’S OKAY TO DRUG WOMEN WITH POISONOUS SUBSTANCES LIKE GHB AND THEN TAKE TURNS RAPING A COMATOSE BODY??? I DON’T GET IT.

PLEASE WATCH THIS TO UNDERSTAND WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2udrpuNxcmM

From East to West, no matter, it is all a culture of rape. There is a world of men who teach their sons from one generation to the next to disrespect and dishonor young girls and women. How can we change this historic cultural mindset that does not respects or honor the female gender but rather dehumanizes and sodomizes girls and women alike. It will take more than my lifetime to change this culture of rape. It will take all of you with sons, and your daughters’ daughters daughters to teach their sons to honor and respect the lives, and the bodies of women. What do you think???
