July is one of many great months to support a SurvivorDocument Transcript
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
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.
