SUPPORT WITHIN REACH: You can ‘Walk a Mile in Her Shoes’
In my line of work as a sexual assault victim’s advocate, you see and work with a lot of women. Women make up a large majority of the victims of sexual assault and women also seem to be the majority of advocates. As women, we have spent years trying to raise awareness about and...

KELLY BREVIG COLUMN: When there is hope, there will always be healing
Several years ago, I was gifted a very fun stress ball. It was filled with a glittery liquid and sea creatures, was soft and rubbery to the touch and difficult to put down. No matter how hard it was manipulated, pulled apart, pushed in, squished and stretched to the extreme, it always...

KELLY BREVIG COLUMN: Making a plan in case of a crisis
When we go through crisis, we sometimes forget about how capable we are when it comes to planning. We have the skills to forge through just about anything in this life. The ability to plan can be the difference between a proverbial four-wheel-drive pickup in a snowstorm versus a mini-smart...

KELLY BREVIG COLUMN: Learning to change comes from within
The year was 1988. The movie was "Beaches." I was the girl sitting in the front row of the theater with all her junior high friends, sobbing my guts out. After the movie, we joined about two dozen other young women in the bathroom, all dabbing our thick 80's blue mascara. Everyone...

KELLY BREVIG COLUMN: A dedication to protect and serve
When my alarm went off this morning, my body did the same knee jerk reaction it always does at 5:36 a.m., I blindly searched for my phone with one panicking arm and tried to disable the horrible noise as quickly as possible. By the time "snooze" and I were acquainted a few times,...

KELLY BREVIG COLUMN: Like geese, we all need a lift from time to time
On my way to work the other day, I noticed one of the telltale signs of fall, geese flying in the sky. I wondered where they were going. It seems as though they use Bemidji as a gathering place before the big fly south. The animated side of my brain pictured a huge union meeting,...

KELLY BREVIG COLUMN: Step up and 'Walk a Mile in Her Shoes'
A few weeks ago I went for a very long walk. I had in earbuds and was listening to a book on my iPhone (free audio downloads courtesy of the Bemidji Public Library). Because I was so engaged in the story, I didn't turn where I normally turn and my walk became much longer than normal....

KELLY BREVIG COLUMN: You are never done parenting
Change is hard. Looking at the face of an 18-year-old and remembering the toddler that needed protection at all times is difficult. When a child is born to us, we are tasked with the job of raising them to the best of our ability and see them to adulthood with the least amount of...
