Telling my story has brought over 1000 signatures to this petition. That has helped me recover more than any shrink ever has. So please tell yours as its the only way. I want to tell my grandchildren im a surviver not a victim.
I know what you mean....sorry it had to happen to you and to all the others
<3 love to all us survivors, who know how to recognize our healing... Thank you for talking about theses hard issues and making change one step at a time. The silence ends with us.
Joanne and others. Your strength, brought tears to my eyes. You all are amazing!
1,015 people? Signed this? I bet most are atheists. Religious people need re educating if they are going to believe the sorrys from a profile preist. May as well let them all free. Rape is an act of violence against god & all his original teachings. If your religious sin is sin & no amount of sorrys hail mary's & our fathers will change that. Its up to people power so get sharing & follow it up.
60 years ago, when I was 10, the friendly parish priest raped me many times over the next 3 yrs. I was told I had to obey priests under pain of mortal sin. What is the lesser of two evils, getting raped twice a week or spending eternity in hell? Easy choice if you've been brainwashed.
EVERY ONE of my LGBTI friends has told me that they made their "Choice" as a RESULT of EARLY CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE.
its all due to culural degradation,morality,and valuesshould bei nbibed at the young age by parrents ,teachers,soceity, religious instituion, govt so that it can be,eliminated
My sister was once a social worker in a small NZ town. She told me that if she was to take action on all incest purpertrators in Eltham 1/2 the population would be in prison !
Two of my children were abused
Too many rules and discussions we should immediately change the laws of child abuse to the stiffest penalties available -- every state adheres to the federal law across the land when it is federally mandated if a child is murdered for any reason no mitigating circumstances will be allowed it will be death or life w/no parole across the land. Until then we cannot consider ourselves civilized...the same goes for the animals --remember thise without voice or choice! !
I haven't reached the point yet when I can call myself a survivor. I am still working hard toward that goal with a great therapist. We must NEVER quit the fight! Innocent children should NEVER be subjected to this horrific crime.
I am more than a survivor, I am an over comer to Victorious...!!!!!
This is one of those DUH! ones. I don't know anybody who doesn't think its a crime.
