July is one of many great months to support a Survivor

  1. 1. Survivors of violence do not need a dedicated month to know that experiencing violence can have a life-long impact. In the words of one survivor July is One of Many Great Months to Support a Survivor STAGES Shame, why me? Disgust, please not again. Self-pity, fragile, crushed, weak, invisible. Anger, what about my rights? How dare you? What about respect? I deserve more! Disgust, memories, haunting me, stalking me, too many memories. Forgiveness, time to move forward, to heal. There is peace in forgiveness, power in saying the words "I forgive", strength in conquering the past and not letting it shadow my future. I choose freedom! If you know someone who has survived violence, choose this moment to let him or her know that you care. If you are experiencing violence or want support, there is help.
