Women's Awareness Blog











{June 3, 2016}   Katie Koestner

Bringing her story of date rape to the world, Katie Koestner (http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-36434191), kept her story alive. We know it can happen to any girl or woman. It can happen if your female. Thank you Katie Koestler for awareness you have provided by telling your story until people listened. Thank you. I know there are many of you out there that have a story too. Let us hear your voice. Join the conversation.

Please, help keep my daughter, Skylar’s story alive. Its a story about how a young 22 year old girl can innocently or unknowingly open doors and hearts to predators in their midst. I have written a novel, called Sophie’s Shadow. (previously written as SHADOWDANCE by Cat Lynn Boyle as of 2016 03 20by Cat Lynn Boyle as of 2016 03 20) It tells my daughter’s story. It’s about what happened to her one dawn when her boyfriend invited her after hours to his studio. Seven hours laters, she died in his arms after ingesting a drink laced with the date rape drug, GHB. Skylar’s case is a cold case, and, what her case needs is the attention Katie Koestler is able to incite around her experience with date rape. Katie Koestner is the hero, I’m not. If any of you reading this blog have ideas about how to build momentum around Skylar’s story, please reply with your ideas. And, Katie, if you read my blog, I’d really enjoy hearing more of your story. Thank you for following.

 



Husband’s fantasy…let see..buy GHB and hire a predator to sexually assault his wife: http://wtvr.com/2015/02/09/police-husband-purchased-ghb-to-drug-sexually-assault-wife/  It must be the water.

I watch a program the other night called the Pyramid Code that offered proofs that experts from all the sciences are meeting to attempt to re-date history as much has been tossed, suppressed, plundered, destroyed, or discovered much later dissolving older theories while new ones emerged (Newton v. Einstein.) Ever hear your expectations affect the outcome of your experiment. Nevertheless, these scientist claimed mankind is just coming out of its’ lowest spiritual connection since the Golden Age 40,000 years ago, which these experts report is a more accurate dating of the earliest matriarchal Egyptian dynasties. Point being the shift hasn’t happened yet our society is pretty depraved. Don’t take my word, listen to the media, the music, the cable, the advertisements, your friends, co-workers, by standers…It doesn’t matter it’s everywhere. Look around there’re a lot of deprave people who look at women like prey or objects and can easily buy GHB and wait until you’re most vulnerable.

Wake up. Look around. Know the landscape. Predators are waiting, watching, Let’s hope, the whole planet wakes up and raises their awareness of the need to learns to live in peace and love and respect all life. If you have a husband, let’s hope he’s got your back, otherwise he’s not worth it like the guy in the video above. What’s he thinking? Any guesses? Be aware take self-defense classes.

Awareness is key. You are the miracle you seek.



Every girl and woman should be able to live safely and free of violence. Violence against women must never be accepted, never excused, never tolerated.

In terms of the U.N.’s perspective on crimes against women, the analysis focusses on the threat to social structures and economic and productivity models: Violence against women and girls is a gross human rights violation that fractures families and communities and hampers development. It has enormous social, economic and productivity costs for individuals, families, communities and societies.
It costs countries billions of dollars every year in extra health care costs and lost productivity.

Worldwide, how can what constitutes rape vary from country to country? Is there any doubt in any woman’s mmd what constitutes rape? No, all women clearly understand what constitutes rape. Apparently though for men rape is a grey area. The is reflected in the fact that the definition of what constitutes rape varies from country to country so there’s no internationally accepted method of comparing on country’s rape statistics with those of other nations. http://www.cnn.com/2013/12/04/world/asia/india-rape-problem-udas/index.html?iid=article_sidebar

India: 14 year old raped by decree of village elder: http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/15/world/asia/india-rape-village-rules/index.html?hpt=hp_t4

In India, “[i]ncidents of rape have gone up by 873% in India in the past 60 years. On average, each day, three Dalit women are raped in some part of our country. The conviction rate for rape cases in 2011 was 25% — although some estimate only one in 10 rapes is reported. The conviction rate for men accused of raping Dalit women is almost nil…” http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/27/opinion/gupta-india-rape-culture/index.html?iid=article_sidebar

Although, an heightened awareness of crimes against women resulted in India after the publicized trial of a Girl whose rape changed India: http://www.cnn.com/2013/12/04/world/asia/india-rape-problem-udas/index.html?iid=article_sidebar

A Non-volent response to this war:

Launched in 2008, the United Nations Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign aims to raise public awareness and increase political will and resources for preventing and ending all forms of violence against women and girls in all parts of the world.

The global vision of the UNiTE campaign is a world free from violence against all women and girls.
UNiTE Goals

Adoption and enforcement of national laws to…punish all forms of violence against women and girls, in line with international human rights standards.
Establishment of national and/or local campaigns and the engagement of a diverse range of civil society actors in preventing violence and in supporting women and girls who have been abused. [This is similar to Obama’s recent approach with college campuses]
Systematic efforts to address sexual violence in conflict situations and to protect women and girls from rape as a tactic of war and full implementation of related laws and policies. http://endviolence.un.org/about.shtml

STAY CONNECTED WTH YOUR SISTERS AROUND THE GLOBE- MARK YOUR CALENDARS: Every year, 25 November and the ensuing 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence which follow (ending on 10 December, Human Rights Day) are commemorated around the world, providing individuals and groups a chance to mobilize and call attention to the urgent need to end violence against women and girls. – See more at: http://www.unwomen.org/en/news/in-focus/end-violence-against-women#sthash.mGqMA90D.dpuf



{July 7, 2014}   Round Up The Usual Suspects

How do pharmacutical companies get permitted to manufacturer GHB derivative products marked by other names via physician promotions? Doctors Peddling GHB derivative products…federal crimes arising from his participation in a nationwide scheme to unlawfully promote the medication Xyrem, also known as sodium oxybate and gamma-hydroxybutyrate (“GHB”), to prescribing physicians for non-approved medical purposes…

Why are recipes like this one for making GHB prolific online? http://www.angelfire.com/planet/organicchemistry/Index/page%203%20chemical%20drugs/page%203.3.3.htm

Why is GHB continuously manufacture red and sold on black market? Because there is a perpetual demand. A hole or a vacancy that people try to to fill when it would dissolve on its own…

Its staggering when you think about the fact that the illegal drug market in the United States is one of the most profitable in the world.

It’s the law…ignored by many: http://www.justice.gov/usao/eousa/foia_reading_room/usam/title4/civ00016.ht

Alchemy of A Shadow Dance 12 22 2013 – MASTER Alchemy of A Shadow Dance is a manuscript written in memory of my daughter, Skylar Lynn Ringland, who went to a music studio in San Francisco after hours and was never seen alive again, She was poisoned with the drug GHB. Her case remains a San Francisco cold case. I have created this blog in her honor. Alchemy of a Shadow Dance is written in her memory. Alchemy of A Shadow Dance is fiction but it is based on the events that occurred in 1999. Alchemy of A Shadow Dance is about stories within stories as read from a journal or told from different perspectives. Everything is in a state of change as the story introduces a bright young girl who will die before the end of Part I. Murdered by poison by someone she knew, a predator with GHB. Part II tells about profound loss that transforms a family broken by suffering as they struggle to make sense of the tragedy and strive for justice. Part III, unlike real life, brings the predators to trial and ultimately, justice prevails. Alchemy of A Shadow Dance is a story of change and transformation; of life and death; of love and hate; of despair and grace; of bravery and cowardice; of wholeness and brokenness; of truth and deception; of murder and revenge. Anything can help launch this project. Thank you for your support.



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.



{December 13, 2013}   Alchemy of A Shadow Dance

Today, I have launched a project on Kickstarter [ http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1230978867/alchemy-of-a-shadow-dance ] to help with editing cost to publish my manuscript, Alchemy of A Shadow Dance 12 22 2013 – MASTERAlchemy of A Shadow Dance, written in memory of my beloved daughter for whom this blog honors. I have been working on this manuscript, in one form or another, for fourteen years. It is attached in its unedited version. IF after reading it, you are interested in contributing to helping publish the manuscript please go to my Kickstarter Project by following the link above. Anything will help.

I hope to bring to the public a true story about the predatory use of GHB and how people get away with murder by slipping it into a woman’s drink. Maybe if Alchemy of A Shadow Dance can be made available to anyone who wants to read it, then it may turn up the volume on the conversation about devastation of GHB, of the need for to stop its from being manufactured and distributed, and may turn up the volume on my daughter’s cold case. With the proceeds from the sale of the book my intent is to hire a private detective to find answers about my daughter’s case. If you would like to help launch Alchemy of A Shadow Dance please contribute by following the link to the Kickstarter Project link provided above, which discusses Alchemy from a creative prospective. I am grateful for everyone of you who visits, reads or interacts with this blog. Thank 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.
