I am looking forward for a chance to celebrate all the hard work I have put into healing from childhood sexual assault. I see it as a time to reflect upon how far I have come and the person I am in spite of what my perpetrators did to me. I have so many people in my life who appreciate me though they may not know how or why I've grown to be the loving, compassionate person they meet.
I am using the Wings Foundation inaurgral Walk for Healing on October 3rd in Denver, CO to allow myself to take into my being the accolades not usually given to survivors of sexual abuse. People will give standing ovations to survivors of cancer but will be silent in the face of childhood sexual abuse. This has got to stop. Our fight for a healthy lifestyle is done everyday and we deserve acknowledgment for our desire to heal and end the cycle of abuse that pervades generations in families.
I walk for the survivors who are yet unable to speak up about their truths.
I walk for the survivors for whom the pain became too much and they made the decision to end their lives.
I walk with the hope that someday there won't be a need for a Walk for Healing.
