As a survivor of rape and molestation, through my years learned my grandmother too was molested and raped..as well as my mom and now my daughter...That is 4 generations. Days like today it makes me overwhelmed with sadness knowing how it feels to suffer from shame and isolation. I get weepy as I sit here and type knowing how painful it was for my mom and grandmother without support and no where to share their stories. Now my daughter faces this same struggle. It's difficult for me to put words to my emotion right now but it frustrates me knowing how prevalent this is in our society. Talking about this and sharing with others here feels right. I may come across jumbled and disorganized but eventually it will make sense.
