My first response when I heard about Sandy Hook
before I allowed myself to feel the horror of what happened there.
And then I cried.
Not just for the children of that little American town and those who loved them.
Those poor families...the empty space in their heart.
I slipped into crying for all the children who go to bed at night with fear in their hearts
children are called collateral damage in other countries.
Is it true?
We reap what we sow..
And I ask myself this.
by truly working to come together in peace?
we say we want to protect the children...

I was sent home to wait for the justice system to do it's job.
no one would believe it was a legitimate rape.
Seven years later, I was watching late night news and heard his name.
and shot a woman to death before turning his gun on himself..
but forgiveness falters when I see us moving backwards as a country.....
when I hear the kind of things that politicians and
religious leaders are saying about rape it makes me ill and angry.
nothing to do with desire and everything to do with control and hate..
and doing harm.
I've felt it. I know. I was terrified....
and so many other women have felt that terror.
Anything less than that is not illegitimate rape?
what message are young men and boys getting?
rewriting what rape is...
are we becoming a culture where rape is sort ok?
is this really a rape culture?
and of course money is involved.
