Mere Objects: scraps cut from a fancy dress from a senior prom with "my then boyfriend/date, now my rapist."
The fierce woman who sent these writes that she doesn't know what to say about her personal story, but that she wants everyone to know that, "rape is NEVER your fault; it is NEVER your burden; it is NEVER your shame."
To others who have experienced sexual violence, she says, "Don't forget to take care of yourself... you're human, and you're healing."
May you find within yourself a deep well of peace and strength; a source to sustain you always.
