This comment made by the President of the United States bothered me on so many levels, I have decided to open this blog to the public.drump

I was a Silent -Girl, although I have met just as many a Silent-Boy. Victims of rape, assault, abuse and then made victims again when trying to be heard.
I was raped at the age of 15, and in this blog I will explain why I stayed silent.My story is not uncommon, nor is it particularly earth shattering. But it did define me in ways I barely recognised until many years later.
It has been 45 years, and keeping silent has done me no favors, speaking out…? Time will tell if this blog helps you and I find a place to break the silence and maybe change some attitudes.
