It's pretty heavy going but I'm glad I wrote it.

What courage that took! I am more sorry than I can express that it all happened, and how long the shadow lasted.

I hope that this speaking out will reach others who are silent out of fear.

I think we all process differently. My sister and I have talked about this (whereas our experiences were not as horrible as yours, they were bad enough); there are some aspects to us that are evidence of the very long shadow cast by those experiences half a century ago and more. But in other ways, we have worked through and come out the other side, with insight enough to try to pass on what we've learned, so that the generations after us don't repeat the pattern.

I'll send out ice cream invites next week. Tell Jay he can hide in the basement and play Sonic the Hedgehog 1,2 AND 3 on Sega Genesis. I even have Sonic Spinball.

Oh, honey. I love you, and admire the courage it took you to endure this man, and to write that article.

I never would have guessed. You seem better adjusted than I am.

I'm glad you wrote this; it was obviously hard to do so. It could help somebody in need.

Woman runs away from potential trouble in Canada to the United States. Man bites dog. Film at 11:00. Good riddance to bad trash. That good part of him wasn't enough to prevent him from leaving a trail of human destruction.

I am so glad you could write this, and so proud of you. I've thought of you in a concerned sort of way since you first announced stuff was going on a couple years ago, but I'm crap at initiating contact, so here we are.

It occurs to me that if I knew you were carrying all this around, I might never have suggested you read my extremely fucked up fiction. I'm glad you did, and I'm glad you liked it, but wow.
