sharing ann

i wanted to share ann today.
i really love and admire this woman.

and i thought this was so important i needed to share it.

she writes of her own experience with rape.
she's been raped twice.
once was 'stranger rape.'
once was 'acquaintance rape.'

if you have triggers that would be set off reading about this subject,
i would pass.

otherwise it seemed important to share and to keep the conversations going.

i applaud ann's honesty and willingness to share.
that is so needed.
along with the listening and understanding and willingness to sit
with these things and really hear and see.

you can find ann here.

Wow, thank you for sharing Ann's word. . .they are indeed painful to read, though no where near as painful for her to live these experiences and then to share. My heart hurts for her and at the same time hugs her bravery and honesty. thank you ter. . .we cannot live in a dream pretending these things do not happen. . .
