“I say No More because, when I was 22 my choice was taken from me. A year out of college, back home, and in a place I felt safe~ A guy who was a friend of others at the party took
advantage of my body three times that night. I say No More because I woke up, face down, and couldn’t scream. I was caged in my own skin~ screaming, but no words were released. Drugged? High possibility. I went to sleep and woke up a different person that Saturday morning in April 2016. I was so confused and angry at the world. I blamed
myself. I turned the case to the police and turned in names of potential abusers, luckily, he confessed. But what I thought would make it easier to know~ made the next 21 months a roller coaster of seeking counseling, hospital treatments and checkups, Trusting God with this obstacle and where he wants to use this in my life. My abuser served 3 months in jail with 10 years on the list. The day of sentencing I forgave him on the stand, and that letter and moment~ is one I am glad I did. #GodisGood (Evil will run your life if you allow it to consume your thoughts, words, and actions) and I was not going to let that happen. He stole my choice, but he did NOT steal my life. Advice: Talk to someone. Does Not have to be the police, there is comfort in knowing you are no alone & you may be surprised who in your life has been through a sexual assault. Stand up & speak NO MORE ♥”
“I survived rape twice. I say NO MORE because it’s time to find my voice and shine the healing light on the courageous survivors. I say NO MORE to excuses made for perpetrators. NO MORE to being shamed into silence. NO MORE to the injustice done to rape victims by not addressing the issue of “back logged rape kits.” Unacceptable!”
“I say no more because domestic violence is like a virus. It spreads and infects those around it. I witnessed domestic violence growing up and saw those around me stay quiet. So, when I got my first black eye in 2006 after 3 years with my abuser I stayed quiet and I went back. When I finally left in 2017 after nearly losing my life, those around me stayed quiet while I had to leave everything I worked my entire life for to survive. I had to fight for my children in court with hardly any money as he held all my belongings, my car, my house and assets hostage for almost two years. I say no more because I want to be part of the cure. I say no more because no one should fear for their life physically, financially, or psychologically. I say no more because marriage or a relationship commitment does not give a person the right to sex, control over finances, or freedom to physically assault their partner. I say no more because we have to be better for our children and our grandchildren or the virus will continue to spread silently affecting our families, our communities, and our world.”
