I shared my assault story the other day and you can too. Speaking out is difficult and I understand how traumatic writing about assault can be. However, I’m not yet ready to give up on the power of voicing and defining your own history — however gory as it might be — for it’s much kinder than silence. If you want to share your story about assault, violence or just need to talk to someone who gets it, e-mail me at sitaspeakshere [at] gmail [dot] com. Or you can just fill out the contact form below.
