Member of RAINN Speaker’s Bureau

There are times when it seems that we walk alone, and that no one could possibly understand the pain, shame or condition of our situation. Situations that perhaps make us feel like we were the ones who caused an unpleasant and unwelcoming touch to our bodies. Forced participation, rape – whatever we call it…It’s a violation!!

There are countless individuals who share the same story, different names and different faces.

Many of us have taken our stories a little further by seeking help. Be empowered and call a crisis center if you or someone that you know is being sexually abused. Report the crime to legal officials, seek counsel – make sure that the perpetrator is prosecuted by law in hopes of preventing another violation.

No one has to suffer in silence or alone.~Storm
