What a strong and courageous young woman you are. And you are such a caring and compassionate person who loves her sister very much. To have gone through what you went through, with a deeply disturbed and angry father, an addicted mother, exposed to an array of abuses from others who were in control, to have been raped at least twice, but to still have the wherewithal to basically tell that cop to go to hell because you were worthy of being treated with dignity and respect...not only did that all take courage to survive, it showed just how remarkably strong you really are. Many in your situation would have been so beaten down, they never would have challenged what that clearly misguided police officer said to you. But you did. You stepped up for yourself in a way that no one else ever had. And for that, you are to be commended and applauded. Keep up the great work, Carly. Keep looking for ways to educate yourself and grow. Because it's in that education and growth that you will find a way to help others who have been through something similar. That, in part, is your gift to the world. And I for one am so happy that you are still a part of this world. Stay in the light, Carly. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and healing energy.
