Between May 10th and 11th, countless people opened up to me. They were wanted to have conversations about our culture, social climate, their personal experiences and every way sexual assault has had an impact on their lives.
The conversation was open and participation was optional, everything was left open ended. Some outlined an entire experience, some spoke solely to the ones who were there and didn’t help, others wrote emotions, a few discussed the aftermath, some looked at their partner’s assaults and the impact it’s had on their relationship, several opted to send their stories via email. And this is all I wanted because we – literally everyone out there – need to open up and acknowledge these things that are happening every single day.
Thank you, everyone, for your willingness to be transparent. Thank you for being strong.
Rolling out every Friday at noon, one at a time.
