An Important Message

Please go to my friend Heather's blog- Singing With My Heart. April has an important message now and she has compiled an excellent post about the subject. She's a strong and courageous young woman who is openly sharing her story as she works through it, heals from it. As a survivor of childhood sexual rape and abuse; as a survivor of sexual assault in my teenage years... I encourage you to go to Heather's blog and read her very well put together post.

You're right - an excellent post over at Heather's place. Some of those statistics blow me away.

Heather said...

Thank you so much, Liz. We HAVE to get the word out, something has to be done. I really appreciate you sharing my link so that we can reach across the span of blogging together :)

Big hugs, girlie!

Thank you, Liz.

And in case you didn't follow the thinly veiled "Bob The Rapist" comments on my blog, I too was sexually assaulted by a family member. As an adult, but it still boggles the mind.

I can't wait to read Heather's blog.

The lack of response to this post just proves that those of us separated from the problem really don't know what to say.

It's difficult to imagine what you all have been through. And frankly, I'd rather not imagine. But I did read Heather's post, as well as her story. And I'm very, very glad you have a community of supporters to turn to.

And I have to say, I'm also impressed that you've gone on to have a loving, healthy marriage.

Flartus- this is one of those times that I am extremely glad to know you.
