Re: Scathing Obituary
Abuser's count on their victims to keep quiet. To feel shame. To feel powerless. Abusing is to be kept secret by all involved. And it doesn't matter how old the victim is. When someone has worked you over in whatever way that is for years, it's hard to overcome that.
Look at the 3 women recently rescued from Ariel Castro. Two of them were so scared, they didn't want to leave even though they were obviously being rescued. That's how much power abusers have.
I think they just wanted a voice. They wanted to be heard. I think they finally felt free to say their truth. I hope it gives them the peace they were seeking.
