Grace:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

NONE of what happened in either situation was your fault. You were the child; they were the adults. You were sexually abused in both instances; and that's on the two men who assaulted you. It is NOT on you. No matter how you dress or act, no one EVER has the right to put their hands on you. EVER. Period. End of story. Always remember that. I'm delighted that the police are involved. He did not mean well, he meant harm. And as a result, I hope this sex offender has to feel the full force of the law. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Body Can Heal
by: Emily

Grace, you did nothing wrong. Something wrong was done to you. It is good that you told your mother. I am much older than you are, and I am still dealing with the effects of being sexually molested. However, my brother and I are helping each other, by talking about what happened to us, and we are slowly getting better. Each time your tell your story, and each time others tell you what they have experienced, a little bit of healing can take place.

I was diagnosed with depression (bipolar II) as an adult. It may take those of us who deal with depression (and in my case, bullying) a little longer to heal.

I am an artist and I write about incest and child abuse. I perform my work in high schools, universities and art galleries. So many young women have been molested. We, the women who have been abused, are not the ones who should feel shame.
