I am so not at that point in my life or my jouney, but she gave me hope that I might be able to forgive someday. Never once did I feel condemned, by Erin's words, for where I am today ~in the midst of anger & rage at what happened to the innocence of my childhood. She let me know there is a time for everything. This is a journey that will be long, but there will be a time when the nightmares, flashback, body memories, will settle & I will rise victoriously for having continued the journey through the pain.
This is an epidemic that must end! It happens all the time! It doesn't discriminate & it has to STOP!!! We need to support Erin's Law, so that children in our schools will be educated about safe & unsafe touch, good secrets & bad secrets! Erin is the voice for so many who have been silenced & are still trying to find theirs!
It's an amazing book! Everyone should read it, especially those who have been abused, the one who love them, & those who work with them.
