What Being A Survivor Has Taught Me
Jacqueline Reilly

I’m a mom who has never experienced sexual assault, but who worries constantly for her daughters. Thanks for being willing to be vulnerable, and thanks for speaking out. It is a hopeful thing to see that you are healing little by little, so I sincerely wish you the best in that spiritual journey.

Every young woman who is more aware, due to your efforts, is a little safer, and I thank you for that. You’ve also given some good advice on how to be supportive to someone who has been assaulted. I value that advice and wish I’d had it when I was younger. I might have been able to be more compassionate in my efforts to help another acquaintance who suffered an assault if I had had this perspective. Wish you all the best!
