Making Headlines and Making a Differenc

For the record, Keisha Lonon’s life-altering testimony wasn’t just for the betterment of her life.

More than anything, it was for the advancement of others, particularly those who can greatly attest to the rash of obstacles through which she has gone and overcome.
As Lonon — a Washington D.C.-area author/businesswoman — explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News, it all started at a fundraising event for Crime Victim Rights sponsored by Network  For Victims of Recovery of DC during which the president of Washington Hospital was hoping to cross paths with her.
Interestingly, he fielded a letter from a victim, who vividly disclosed how Lonon miraculously changed her life. Ironically, such an emotionally-driven letter is featured in Lonon’s new book entitled, Being A Victim By Just Being Me
