Coming into Alexandra House,

Coming into Alexandra House, I thought I'd be working with meek ladies who required my affection and backing. I thought I would professionally provide for them my assistance, yet that I would be the one doing the diligent work for these fragile women who had been gravely injured. I am humiliated to admit these absurd contemplations (intuitive or not), yet I am speculating that they are more regular than we might want to contemplate. 

The fact of the matter is, the ladies I work with are injured. However they are not regularly shallow wounds that take a matter of weeks to recover. Lives of selling out, control and trepidation can't be mended in a matter of days or weeks or months. These are damages that need years to recoup from—time that is once in a while given to a lady making moves to totally restart a life for she and her kids. 

What's more these ladies that I so noblely needed to ensure with my warmth and love? They ought to never have been given such a mixed up mark as I would have bound them to. Working with these unimaginable ladies to discover lodging, to ensure their youngsters, to work through the psychological weight that every individual brings with them—I have seen their quality and diligence. I have seen them battle to ensure the privileges of themselves and the ones they cherish. I have viewed on as they make headway and make courageous strides at the obscure, frequently without the backing of a general public that accuses them for the chains that headed them for so long. 

These ladies are not in need of any single knight, regardless of the fact that that knight is a bit distinctive and comes as a 20-something, social work understudy with all the best trusts and beliefs. The ladies I work with—my every day saints need a full armed force. Not an armed force to go before them, yet to remained alongside them. They need backers who will go along side them in their trip. Promoters supporting them in the way they pick and battling for an all the more simply society. 

Since the truth is, one in four ladies are confronting this fight, recuperating from residential and sexual roughness, making room in the trenches for the following lady who will be constrained into the positions.

Alexandra is the feminine form of the given name Alexander, which is a romanization of the Greek name Αλέξανδρος. etymologically, the name is a compound of the Greek verb λέξειν "to defend" and the noun νδρός, genitive of νήρ "man". Thus it may be roughly translated as "defender of man" or "protector of man". The name was one of the titles given to the Greek goddess Hera and as such is usually taken to mean "one who comes to save warriors". The earliest attested form of the name is the Mycenaean Greek a-re-ka-sa-da-ra, written in Linear B syllabic script.

The tiger (Panthera tigris) is the largest cat species, reaching a total body length of up to 3.3 metres (11 ft) and weighing up to 306 kg (670 lb). Their most recognizable feature is a pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with lighter underparts. They have exceptionally stout teeth, and their canines are the longest among living felids with a crown height of as much as 74.5 mm (2.93 in) or even 90 mm (3.5 in). In zoos, tigers have lived for 20 to 26 years, which also seems to be their longevity in the wild.They are territorial and generally solitary but social animals, often requiring large contiguous areas of habitat that support their prey requirements. This, coupled with the fact that they are indigenous to some of the more densely populated places on Earth, has caused significant conflicts with humans.

Tigers once ranged widely across Asia, from Turkey in the west to the eastern coast of Russia. Over the past 100 years, they have lost 93% of their historic range, and have been extirpated from southwest and central Asia, from the islands of Java and Bali, and from large areas of Southeast and Eastern Asia. Today, they range from the Siberian taiga to open grasslands and tropical mangrove swamps. The remaining six tiger subspecies have been classified as endangered by IUCN. The global population in the wild is estimated to number between 3,062 to 3,948 individuals, with most remaining populations occurring in small pockets that are isolated from each other. Major reasons for population decline include habitat destruction, habitat fragmentation and poaching. The extent of area occupied by tigers is estimated at less than 1,184,911 km2 (457,497 sq mi), a 41% decline from the area estimated in the mid-1990s.

Tigers are among the most recognisable and popular of the world's charismatic megafauna. They have featured prominently in ancient mythology and folklore, and continue to be depicted in modern films and literature. Tigers appear on many flags, coats of arms, and as mascots for sporting teams. The Bengal tiger is the national animal of Bangladesh and India.

Brewer's Sparrow

These birds migrate to the southwestern United States south to central Mexico. These birds forage primarily in shrubs or in low vegetation, but also on the ground. They mainly eat insects in summer with seeds becoming a more important part of the diet at other times of the year. They usually forage in flocks outside of the breeding season, sometimes with other sparrows. The female typically lays 3 to 4 eggs (up to 5) in a cup nest in low shrubs.

Brewer's Sparrow has decreased in some parts of their range. Causes are not well understood, but it is suspected that the decline is due at least in part to destruction of sagebrush habitat. Additional information on resource use and limitation during the wintering season is desperately needed. When the Timberline Sparrow was still considered a good species, Brewer's Sparrow was classified as Near threatened by the IUCN. However, as only entire species are evaluated for the IUCN Red List, following the merger the entire population of S. breweri is classified as Species of Least Concern.
