We are here today because 1 out of 4 women are sexually harassed, molested, raped, or abused. We are here because 1 in 33 men are raped or experience attempted rape. Look to your left and right. Chances are that someone standing on either side of you is a survivor of rape.
It’s like you’re screaming but no one can hear. You almost feel ashamed that someone could be that important, that without them, you feel like nothing. No one will ever understand how much it hurts. You feel hopeless, like nothing can save you. And when it’s over and it’s gone, you almost wish that you could have all that bad stuff back so you can have the good.
