Some people should be ashamed of themselves.
I left a Telegram discussion group over this
“During the interview, I also discussed that after returning to the US, I became aware of some articles and media videos that were obvious misrepresentations of my family and some were character attacks on me and my family.
One influencer specifically targeted my son, alleging that my son was the grandson of a man who has the same name, Gavyn Davies. This other Gavyn Davies allegedly has a nefarious background according to the influencer. Keep in mind, Davies is an extremely common last name. But even if it wasn’t, declaring two people are related because they have the same last name or the same first and last name with zero evidence, is not investigative reporting, it’s just storytelling and gossip.”
How I handled threats and exposure to toxic substances in the past and the reasons why I responded in a very different manner to this most recent situation.
Sunday, September 3, 2023: Jeff Dornik and I discuss some of the experiences that led to the decisions that I made over the past several weeks, including why I went “off the grid” in Mexico. You can watch the full 20-minute video here.
To provide a general summary of our discussion, I address how I handled threats and exposure to toxic substances in the past and the reasons why I responded in a very different manner to this most recent situation.
Topline Interview Summary
Based on the information I was being told, as well as the physiological (and likely neurological) reactions I was having, I believed I was being targeted and that my safety and my family’s safety was at risk. I made the decision to separate from my family and to disconnect from communicating with them as as well as ‘go off the grid’ because I believed that those actions would keep me and my family safe from threatening situations.
During the interview, I explain how I contacted my family after arriving in Mexico to inform them where I was, that I was safe, and that they would not be hearing from me for up to several days. I also informed them that follow-up communications would also be several days apart.
When I left for Mexico and completely ‘disconnected from the grid’, I had believed that this was the most effective strategy to keep me and my family safe from harm. At the time, I did not have access to, nor was I was aware that there are untraceable cell phones, computers, and other devices.
They Say There is a Reason for Everything.
I believe that what I experienced and observed over the past several weeks was for multiple reasons. I learned that “going off the grid” in what I believed was a way to keep my family safe from harm, enabled many strangers to be their primary sources for information and support. Although these individuals were trying to be helpful, some of the information given to my family was inaccurate and heightened the intensity of an already extremely stressful situation.
I was reminded that keeping connected with your family and healing any past or current wounds is one of our most important responsibilities. We are all human and we’ve all experienced acts of intentional harm or betrayal. While these wounds may take a long time to heal, they are important to heal. I assure you that family division is undoubtedly an act of evil. Mark 13:12 even states that during end times, “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death.”
Misrepresentations of My Family
During the interview, I also discussed that after returning to the US, I became aware of some articles and media videos that were obvious misrepresentations of my family and some were character attacks on me and my family.
One influencer specifically targeted my son, alleging that my son was the grandson of a man who has the same name, Gavyn Davies. This other Gavyn Davies allegedly has a nefarious background according to the influencer. Keep in mind, Davies is an extremely common last name. But even if it wasn’t, declaring two people are related because they have the same last name or the same first and last name with zero evidence, is not investigative reporting, it’s just storytelling and gossip.
Speaking of last names, Jeff and I also discuss why I did not keep the last name Kuchler, pronounced kooch-ler or “kooch” for short. Hence my brother’s Substack is entitled “Kuch Says”.
Storytelling is Not Investigative Reporting
The influencer who declared my son was the grandson of a 72 year-old man named Gavyn Davies with an alleged nefarious background, also accused my son and I of setting up a givesendgo to defraud the public. When I became aware of the givesendgo campaign the influencer was referring to (which had my picture on it), I immediately made social media posts informing people that I believed it to be fraud. My brother then contacted me and explained that he had worked with some doctors to set up the givesendgo. I asked him to take it down immediately and to return the funds. My brother publicly confirms that the givesendgo was taken down and the funds were returned in his Substack, Kuch Says.
Unfortunately, I expect that a few influencers (as well as individuals who personally know me from a past or current relationship) will likely misrepresent past situations or past conversations in order to frame me as a person who lacks integrity or even as being emotionally or mentally unwell.
I have little to no desire to defend any future character attacks or misrepresentations of what I or my family recently went through; or to defend past made-up or misrepresented stories about me or my family. These matters are private. The only reason for others to publicize and/or misrepresent my personal family matters is for click-bait or character assassination.
Building a Safe Community and Trusted Network
These recent experiences also reminded me of the importance of staying close with your friends and community.
Jeff and I discuss the importance of finding people that you can trust, as well as the protection and comfort that is provided by being part of a church community. I led a Bible study for women out of my home for four (4) years. When someone needed a safe and peaceful place to simply rest and heal, my home was always open to them.
During the 20-minute interview, I also disclose how I was recently denied various services when returning home, including medical services. This opened my eyes to the critical importance of expanding your circle of like-minded, compassionate, and responsible friends in preparing for the for upcoming times.
I am Overwhelmed with Gratitude By Your Prayers and Continual Support
I am so grateful for your ongoing support, prayers, and patience. When I did return online and began reading all of your comments, I was often overwhelmed with love and gratitude knowing how many of you care for me and my family’s safety.
The past few weeks have been traumatic for me and my family. I am taking time to reconnect and heal, as well as to get proper medical care. I am also doing my best to properly vet and invest in services to heal my body and protect me and my family, while simultaneously taking some time to heal the trauma my family and I have been through.
As I find ways to become healthier, I will share with you ways we can all heal; not only physically, but also emotionally and spiritually. Families, communities, and nations have all experienced heightened levels of trauma over these past three (3) years and we all need healing.
I will also share ways to connect with like-minded individuals and families that can provide safety and protection.
Thank you again for your patience as I take time to heal and for your continued prayers, compassion, and support.
With love and gratitude – Karen Kingston
