I say No More because, when I was 22 my choice was taken from me. A year out of college, back home, and in a place I felt safe~ A guy who was a friend of others at the party took advantage of my body three times that night. I say No More because I woke up, face down, and couldn't scream. I was caged in my own skin~ screaming, but no words were released. Drugged? High possibility. I went to sleep and woke up a different person that Saturday morning in April 2016. I was so confused and angry at the world. I blamed myself. I turned the case to the police and turned in names of potential abusers, luckily, he confessed. But what I thought would make it easier to know~ made the next 21 months a roller coaster of seeking counseling, hospital treatments and checkups, Trusting God with this obstacle and where he wants to use this in my life. My abuser served 3 months in jail with 10 years on the list. The day of sentencing I forgave him on the stand, and that letter and moment~ is one I am glad I did. #GodisGood (Evil will run your life if you allow it to consume your thoughts, words, and actions) and I was not going to let that happen. He stole my choice, but he did NOT steal my life. Advice: Talk to someone. Does Not have to be the police, there is comfort in knowing you are no alone & you may be surprised who in your life has been through a sexual assault. Stand up & speak NO MORE ♥ Kate
