Powerful Song for Domestic Violence Awareness: Teacher Mother Sister Daughter
This song is a compelling expression of the lasting and far-reaching effects of violence.
By: Human Resource Essential
Teacher Mother Sister Daughter was composed by Lisa’s husband Tim Ponzek in 1996 as a path to their healing and first produced in 2001. Lisa recalls, “I had to reach deep down within myself to sing this song, not only for myself, but for my family, because Tim’s lyric was so very emotional: She wants what you took away. She wants what you can’t replace. She wants what you laid your hands on. She wants what you laid to waste…” This past fall Lisa decided to re-master and release Teacher Mother Sister Daughter after attending at an educational event at Sojourner Center where she shared Teacher Mother Sister Daughter with speaker Stephanie Angelo, SPHR, owner of Human Resource Essential, LLC. Ms. Angelo’s company partners with organizations and corporate leaders to create workplaces that are safe and supportive. “This song is a compelling expression of the lasting and far-reaching effects of violence. Partnering with Lisa and Tim creates an avenue for communicating the urgency to end domestic abuse in all its forms.” said Stephanie. Stephanie has since invited Lisa and her two sisters to write their personal reflections of this tragic day and will include these moving stories in the series titled “Ilene’s Story” in the Human Resource Essential blog. http://hressential.com/
