Well I truly didn’t think it would be that easy. I decided I want to focus on one person a day who has been abused and, if I picked a “famous” person it might help others who are afraid to speak out.
Well I went searching and I wasn’t disappointed. I think it took me about 20 minutes in total to find the first 75 names. That’s really sad to me. These are people who have been courageous enough to speak out and the people I will feature are celebrities. I’m wondering though about the rest of the population: all those people who are afraid to speak out and who are not famous.
So, not surprisingly the first person to hit this list is Oprah herself. She is quite vocal and quite outspoken about her abuse as a child. I am honoured that she has taken a stand so that others can see how doing so can make a difference.
Thank you Ms. Winfrey for your ongoing courage.
