This 24-Year-Old Mom Who Lost Her Baby And Husband Posted Her Story On IG To Bring Consciousness

This young woman’s husband and unborn son were killed after their car was struck by a drunk driver. Rather than spreading anger about the tragic incident, she’s raising awareness.

On August 2, Kristian Nicole Guerrero’s life changed forever when a drunk driver  – identified as 21-year-old Shana Lee Elliott – crossed the center lane on Highway 21 in San Marcos, Texas, and ran into her vehicle head-on, according to KXAN.com. Guerrero’s husband, Fabian Guerrero-Moreno, who was in the passenger seat, was killed in the crash.

Guerrero, a 24-year-old expecting mom, was hospitalized with a brain bleed. Two days later, she was induced and delivered her 19-week stillborn son, who she named Fabian James, after his dad.

Now, over a month since the tragic incident, Guerrero is sharing her heartbreaking story on social media with the hopes to shed some light on drunk driving.

“This is me finally being able to hold my son. This is what being in an induced labor for almost 24 hrs after surviving a car crash that killed my husband and my son looks like,” Guerrero posted on her social media platforms earlier this week.

“All because someone thought it was okay to get wasted and drive. It’s not okay,” she added.

In the post, Guerrero emphasized the importance of making mature decisions when drinking, stating that asking for a ride or giving your car keys to someone else are not signs of weakness.

“I could’ve died on August 2, but God had other plans,” she wrote.

“I’m left behind to fight this fight for my husband and my son. And I will continue to spread awareness and share this story until the day I die in hopes it prevents anyone else from feeling the pain I walk around with every day. I refuse to let my husband and my son’s deaths be in vain.”

KXAN reports that “Elliott is currently in the Hays County Jail charged with two counts of intoxicated manslaughter and one count of intoxicated assault.” Her bond amount totals $385,000.

Doctored Image Of Ted Cruz In BDSM Gear Is Going Viral

An altered image of Sen. Ted Cruz in full BDSM gear is popping up all over social media right now. The conservative senator has sparked outrage from the nation several times during his career as a politician. Who could forget him taking a vacation to Mexico as Texans died from power outages connected to extreme winter weather?

This image of Sen. Ted Cruz first showed up in San Antonio.

The photo has gone viral on social media after being photographed in San Antonio. The doctored image put Sen. Cruz’s face on the half-naked body of a man wearing a leather chest harness, leather boots, small underwear, gloves, and holding a riding crop. The body has “PROUD BOYS” tattooed across the stomach.

Some are offended for the man whose body is used in the image.

The image has sparked a conversation about fat, slut, and queer-shaming. It is never okay to shame people for their bodies, their sexual orientation, or their sexuality. The acting of shaming these things creates humiliation and dangerous prejudices against people.

But, the use of this imagery has a very specific and pointed message.

Sen. Cruz has a long history of opposing Pride parades, marriage equality, and the inclusion of LGBTQ+ people in nondiscrimination orders. The senator also made headlines during his campaign for president for hiring an adult entertainer in an attack ad against Marco Rubio.

One of Sen. Cruz’s ads featured Amy Lindsay, who had a history of appearing in softcore pornographic films. The Cruz campaign tapped her to act in the ad and pulled it just as quickly when Lindsay’s acting history came to light.

Sen. Cruz is up for reelection in 2024.

Seems safe to say that some Texans are already trying to launch their own campaigns to defeat Sen. Cruz. The 2018 race for his seat against Beto O’Rourke showed the potential for unseating the incumbent as the demographics continue to shift in the Lone Star State. The 2020 election also showed that Texas could turn blue sooner than most ever expected.

Fort Hood Honors Vanessa Guillén By Naming Gate After Her One Year After Death

Fort Hood Honors Vanessa Guillén By Naming Gate After Her One Year After Death

It’s been one year since Spc. Vanessa Guillén was murdered at Fort Hood. The death shocked the nation and revealed an environment of sexual harassment and unexplained deaths at the military base. One year later, Fort Hood is honoring Vanessa Guillén by naming a gate after her.

It’s been one year since Spc. Vanessa Guillén was killed.

Guillén’s death devastated her family and angered the nation. Her disappearance, which went under the radar for months, sparked a campaign for answers from Fort Hood officials.

Guillén’s death sparked a movement to address sexual assault and violence against women in the military. Guillén’s attacker killed her because she threatened to report him for sexual harassment. #IAmVanessaGuillen was a trending topic as people shared their stories of sexual harassment in the military. Her family proposed legislation to make it safer for people to report this kind of harassment while in the military.

Fort Hood renamed one of their gates to honor Guillén.

Officials from the military base worked with the family to figure out a way to honor Guillén’s memory and legacy at the base. The gate leads to the 3rd Regiment, where Guillén spent her days and served her country.

“So in coordination with the family, who agreed to allow us to do this, we are going to dedicate a gate that has her name on it — that has her picture — and you can come learn just a little about Vanessa. But mostly it’s so [in] two, three, four years we haven’t forgotten what this is all about, what this moment is all about in our history,” Lt. Gen. Pat White, commanding general of III Corps and Fort Hood, said at the ceremony unveiling the gate, according to NBC News.

The family hopes that the gate serves as a reminder and inspiration.

Lupe, Guillén’s younger sister, spoke at the family’s news conference. They did not attend the ceremony because of the anniversary and the emotional toll being in that soot would take on the family. Yet, she is hopeful that the gate being named after her sister will keep her memory alive and encourage people to seek help when sexually harassed.
