Speaking the Truth
It Takes A Community to Heal
Living In the Dark Gives Us Comfort But Keeps Us Blind
Remember Mohandas Gandhi’s words: “Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you are right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind even if you are the minority of one. The truth is still the truth.”
It’s time to wake up and stop oppressing others regarding abuse. If it bothers you, you need to do some deep soul searching to find out why it does. By denying the evidence or not wanting to deal with the matter does not make it untrue. Wake up and recognize the many individuals that have experienced childhood sexual abuse and sexual assault; this is the least you and I can do to allow these individuals to heal completely. Break the silence. Give them the space to tell their story.
