I'm so sorry to hear of what you experienced as an innocent child but also happy to hear that you were able to address is and understand that it was NOT your fault. You are very brave to speak about your experience and I send so much love your way for helping others. I am also a victim of sexual assault and understand it is a daily process to heal. But what helps is the acknowledgment that as women and girls, there was nothing we could have ever done to ask for such a vicious crime against us. It's not the clothing, but the deficiency of the mindset of our attackers that caused it. Thank you so much for writing so openly and from your heart.
