Survivor’s Story – The Sum of What I Have Learned

By Anonymous

Do you remember as a child when you were told exercise is good for you? You exercise to regain yourself, to feel prettier, feel healthy. Sometimes it doesn’t work that way. There are people waiting lurking in the shadows. The shadow people have no heart, no sense of right and wrong. They only think of themselves and have no remorse for the pain they inflict on others.

To survive the showdown you must fight for your life. Shadow people will do more than rape you. You must fight for your life, because it depends on it. Fight like it is the last night you will breath or be on this earth. Fight!!!

Shadow people know their prey. Be prepared for what follows. Change your locks and phone number. My shadow person had a key. I only found out after he broke in and ransacked my safe place. He would call my phone, to the point that my phone would scare me when it rang. I changed my locks, phone number and added a deadbolt.

Trust your instinct. To survive you must know your surroundings. If something doesn’t feel right trust yourself. It is ok to trust your instincts.

Change things up. Don’t always jog in the same place or same time. Don’t go to the gym or leave work like a time clock. Being unpredictable is safe. No one should be able to map out your day or night.

All of these things saved me from my shadow person. I trusted my instincts. If you think you are being followed or stalked believe in yourself? You are not crazy. You are being safe.

Fight for your life. You may be punched, broken and bruised but you will be alive for another day. I was badly punched, broken and bruised but I am alive. Alive for another day, another month, another year.

Fight like it is the last night you will breath or be on this earth. Fight for your life. Fight!!!


Police hunt six men after brutal gang-rape attack on teen | Warwick Daily News

How could anyone do such a vile act to a child. A girl of just 14 years should not have to face this. Please help this family find these men. They should be in jail before they hurt another child.

Ending rape on campus: Activism takes several forms By Emanuella Grinberg, CNN

This link is about campus rape. It is a widespread problem. My hope is that Universities start addressing the issue. It is time to explore solutions for the problem. It is time to stop blaming the victim and stop sweeping it under the rug. Rape and sexual assault does exist on college campuses. Lets work on a solution and get the problem solved.

Tacoma high-school teacher charged with child rape

High school is a place of trust and respect between teachers and students. I don’t understand why a teacher would cross that line. It is bad enough that there are predators outside of the safety of high school no one should have to experience that at school.

If you have the urge to take away someones innocence pause and think about what you are doing. You will change this persons life forever. They will be haunted by smells, images, memories, and your lasting violent act. It is not easily forgotten. It is a scar and burden they will carry forever.

Taking Responsibility for Rape

Powerful message, I am tired of women getting blamed for rape.

I wrote this post over a week ago.

I meant to publish it then, but life has been busy and it got away from me.

Then another rape story hit the news cycle, and another round of hand-wringing and victim blaming – complete with literally burning the victim’s house to the ground – made the rounds. Lot’s of things have been said like, “What did she expect at 1am?

Another woman took the time to write a piece saying that if we want to end rape, we’ll just teach women not to drink.

Lots of people jumped all over that, as they should – because female sobriety doesn’t stop rape.

Then someone I generally respect tweeted out:

“Sooo interesting: Is it supporting “rape culture” to remind young women not to binge drink & leave selves vulnerable? http://bit.ly/15MCDxy

Here’s the thing – WE ALREADY KNOW…
