"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 when you have resilience, strength and by having faith in God and developing an ability to maneuver through what is happening in life, you can say in confidence along with her, I'm Still Standing! 


As an Author, Recognized Speaker, Certified 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."

How did you feel about what you read?
The reading was detailed and full of emotion. I felt like I was present sharing this experience with the author.
Were you engaged?
I was very engaged. I could feel the author's faith and will to overcome such a horrible trauma. I came to admire her relentless commitment to survive not for herself but for her children. It was truly a compelling and inspiring read.
Would you recommend this book to others and why?
This book should be required reading for any self-help seminar or course. This is not a work of fiction nor was it "based" on a true story. This book was taken from the actual journals of the author documenting not only her thoughts but the actual emotions she was feeling at the time. It as a work of triumph that will inspire people suffering from whatever ills or hardships they may be suffering. It will also inspire people who are not in trauma to help and offer support to others who are.
Were you anticipating what was to come next?
In a real life journey you never know where the road leads. Knowing that the author is a success story, I anticipated the best. However I had no idea of the upcoming perils she would still have to face.
