More About I'm Still Standing by Mildred D. Muhammad
"Following the 2009 release of her memoir, Scared Silent, Mildred Muhammad is back with the follow up to her story after breaking her silence about the domestic violence she suffered during her marriage to the executed D.C. Sniper, John Allen Muhammad. In her second memoir, I'm Still Standing, Mildred Muhammad picks up where she left off in her first memoir and tells about the compelling events that occurred during and after the conviction and execution of her former husband, John Allen Muhammad. We learn what was going through the minds of their three young children as they faced the reality that their father was going to be executed for his crimes in the October 2002 sniper killings that took place in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area. Mildred Muhammad describes how she and her children overcame the difficulties they faced in the wake of the negative media attention and threats from people in her community who continued the victim-blaming.The victim-blaming caused her to turn to isolation as a way of protecting herself and her children, How did Mildred face those who continued to blame her for the crimes that John had committed? Gritty, raw, and emotional, Mildred Muhammad's story shows her triumph over the (external and internal) system that put her in a place of fear and isolation. Mildred Muhammad's story proves that because of her resilience, strength and having faith in God and her ability to maneuver through the process, she can say with confidence, I'm Still Standing As an Author, Recognized Speaker, Domestic Abuse/Violence Awareness Advocate and Survivor, Mildred Muhammad has risen to become a voice for victims and survivors of domestic violence; especially for the 80% who do not have physical scars to prove they are victims."
