Many think it will never happen to them. I was one of the many until the night my former neighbor broke into my apartment and raped me on August 9th, 1999. That night, I was forced to wake up to the reality: the reality I did not see how easy for anyone to be the next victim. The reality we are often blinded by the confusions about sex in our society.
That night, I was forced to learn how much it hurts to be violated in very sacred place; my womb. The offender was sentenced to 20 years in prison. I am one of few lucky victims who got some sort of justice. I know the majority are not so lucky. I now cannot stop wondering how many victims are out there crying alone tonight.
