August Ames, porn actress suicide

Please pray for the soul of August Ames (born Mercedes Grabowski) - please pray for her and her widower Kevin and her family.

This poor thing was only 23 years old and hanged herself in a park after a case of severe cyberbullying led her to utter despair.

She was molested dozens of times by her own grandfather until she was a teen, then went and lived in group homes until she turned 18 and got involved in the adult “industry”. She struggled with bipolar disorder and multiple identity disorder atop of being a victim of sexual molestation.

Such a short and tragic life, such a physically beautiful woman.

Lord have mercy.

Lord Jesus have mercy on your daughter August and do not remember her sins or failures but only her charity.

Holy Mary please spread your mantle over the soul of August.

Picture of her and her husband:

That poor woman. What a hell of a life. My prayers are with her.

When I think of how much she must’ve been hurting and how distraught she was I get all choked up.

I wish I would’ve known her and could’ve talked to her :frowning:

She was, in a way, murdered by the LGBT community. Scumbags in that community flipped out in a comment she made and then began constant cyberbullying.

She was a mentally ill 23 year old - I can’t believe they couldn’t cut her some slack for an off the cuff remark.

I know, it’s so hard to hear something like what happened to Mercedes. Only 23 and her life is over. Those who destroyed this young soul starting with her grandfather will have to stand before God. The song " Candle in the Wind ’ came to mind when you said you wish you would have known her, and you could have talked. The one Elton John sang for Marilyn Monroe, there are some similarities. Thank you for bringing this girl’s life and death to our attention God Bless You:::butterfly::butterfly:

As I have said before, we no longer have the right to not associate with, let alone not work with people we don’t want to be around. We must accommodate them regardless of our feelings on the matter or else pay the price. While her choices in life were outside the realm of Christianity, we can still pray for her soul and contemplate the circumstances of her passing as a reflection of the culture we are in.

I’m glad to see such an outpouring of charity and mercy for her, it warms my heart.

While it is clear her work and the industry she worked in were and are diametrically opposed to Catholic faith and morals, it is also clear there were severe extenuating circumstances which led her down that path.

It is my sincere hope (and belief) that her culpability was so severely diminished that I really can’t imagine God condemning her - which means there’s a good chance shes either in paradise right now, or on her way there.

Many who suffer abuse especially from a young age don’t have the support system, the love of family or friends, the maturity or the means to get the help they honestly need. It’s not their fault what was done to them and how it affected them in their lives.
