Brenda Dempsey launches “Voices of Courage”

Author Brenda Dempsey, domestic abuse survivor, helps brave women to have their voices heard in a new book

Bravery is not just about the big heroic occasions that make the headlines.  True bravery can be found in the day to day choices that are made by everyday people who find themselves faced with dark and dangerous situations.  It is when they are faced with unexpected choices of either confronting the challenge head on or of running away to fight another day.  It is these stories, that can be the most inspirational.

Brenda Dempsey, is author of the new book, Voices of Courage, and is herself a survivor of domestic abuse and homelessness.  She is on a mission to help give voice to other courageous women who have either been victims or have demonstrated exceptional qualities by overcoming seemingly impossible challenges.
