Even trying to find words to participate a blogging stand against sexual assault is not something easy for me to do. What I can do, however, is give a word of encouragement to all the survivors out there.
You can rise from this.
And I can teach my son that there is a right way to treat women. Break the cycle.
And I can learn to love myself, my whole self, in the same way my family loves me. Because I’ve found my safe place.
It’s time we change the conversation about sexual violence and assault…and that we as society drop our fears.
Because really, we all have something to learn from this.
