How it feels having my highly personal story go viral

We say the same things over and over and over. We try to provoke empathy in others, so that they can see, at last, what we have suffered for years, for decades, for centuries. And it seems the world is never ready to hear us, never wants to try to understand. Then one more person speaks, and at last people hear. Thank you for being that person.
