Submit APhotoFrequently, when we talk about sexual abuse we are doing it from the vantage point of adulthood. It is easy to forget how young we were. As adults, we call ourselves survivors- but we didn’t become survivors as grown women and men. Those little girls and boys, who somehow found a way to hang on; those children who found their way through the darkness, who did what they needed to do to survive- they are warriors. Heroes.
We want to give a face to sexual abuse. We want to say, “HERE. LOOK. This is who we were when we were violated, when something was taken from us.” We want to honor our sisters and brothers.
