In the beginning: abuse is delivered by the those who should have been there to comfort, to protect. Physical, emotional, sexual abuse are familiar denizens of childhood years for all too many children.
And, of course, there's the cover up--bury the memories deep, hide the pain, live in desperation and unending solitude--a hard place to live, a hard place to leave, a hard place to survive. Because no one really wants to know the truth. No one wants to look too closely at just how tragic the effects of abuse are.
I choose to part the veil of silence--atrocities brought into the light diminish in power and no longer control me. And, in the process, if I can help lead others out of the shadows into the light, then my journey is not in vain. pdf
