oooh a lot of stuff came up inside me this weekend.
lots of stuff.
funny how it does that from time to time.
i've been following the news of the catholic
church and the molesting stuff.
it's hitting my buttons like i can't even believe.
and something that i had never thought of with my
own experience.....(which had nothing to do with the
church, by the way.)
when i was molested,
i didn't tell anybody. i didn't say a word.
but somewhere, i guess, i figured if i did, someone
would do something about it. i'm not sure i ever really
thought about it. but i think there was an assumption
of that somewhere inside of me.
it never ever occurred to me that people would help
to cover that up.
this weekend i kept thinking of what it would feel like
to have that happen.
i am stunned that there isn't more of an uproar over
and so sad for all those people who got hurt.....and
then so hurt again by the reactions they got from
the people who should have taken care of them. and
that it's still going on.
there's a lot swirling in me this morning.
and that particular thing seems to cover
what's inside me.
why don't we take care of each other? why don't
we see? what could be more important?
feeling way way mellow today......
