That was too long ago for me to remember…
My home was broken by abuse and tried to be relieved through suicide.
Courage was essential to move forward.
Meeting the man that caused so much of pain to my hero was one of the most difficult things to do.
Words hurt you know…
Strength was needed to move forward…
My hero left a bad situation for a worse one.
My step dad raped me when I was 10 years old.
Continuing every school day.
My hero didn’t believe me…
Persistence got me out when I was 13 years old and filed for a restraining order.
Was this nightmare finally over?
He came back…
He beat me
He raped me
He threatened me
Being alone was the worst…
Nine years till I finally got justice!
