It won't wash away . . . RAPE

This post is dedicated to every victim of sexual assault, including our precious little angels who suffered at the hands of child molestation, and those brave souls who experienced rape, whether attempted or completed.

To those whose lives were snuffed out as a result of a most unimaginable travesty, to all the special angels, no matter the age, gender, race or religion, though you may have died far too young, we honor you!





[1]1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime.

Every 2 minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted.

Sexual assault is one of the most under reported crimes, with 60% still being left unreported.

Victims of sexual assault are:

3 times more likely to suffer from depression.

6 times more likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.

13 times more likely to abuse alcohol.

26 times more likely to abuse drugs.

4 times more likely to contemplate suicide.

God bless the child

When will the madness cease? What will you do to make a difference?
