Till it Happens to you

Thank you Lady Gaga!

Lady Gaga,

Thank you for performing this song last night and bringing attention to the rape crisis. You are so inspiring, courageous and strong. Every time you sing this song I can’t help but cry. It is so true.

It also reminded me of a poem I once knew:

“When it happens to other people you say how sad, you say poor thing, but when it happens to you it’s different, it’s everything.”

I can’t remember where that came from but it is so very true. Rape changes you as a person. It effects your life in more ways then you could ever imagine.

I was first raped at age 12 and last rapped at age 18 but I still suffer the mental and physical pain of the abuses I experienced. Rapists get off every day while more and more men, women, and children are raped. Please please please pray for peace with me. Stop the violence. Stop the rapes once and for all.

  Till it happens to you
