It Hurts, But It's True

that's the fact.  i can't change who i was, i can't go back and get the people i've lost. i can't erase the cut scars on my body, stop myself from having outburst in the past, or change my grades from years ago. i can't relive the countless hours in therapy or locked in my room. i can't go back and tell my parents to use a damn condom so none of this happened. but i can move forward. i can keep on going with my life, and be someone.

Yeap, be someone, be the one you'll look up to when you look back. It's never too late for anybody to change!

I am a child abuse as well as a domestic violence survivor, and a mother of a sexually abused child. I am writing a book about ALL types of abuse to let others know they are not alone in their struggle. <br />
<br />
If you are a SURVIVOR of any type of abuse please use my book as a platform to share your testimony. Your entry can be up to 1500 words and you may use your real name or remain anonymous. <br />
<br />
I am giving authors who share a personal experience a book, providing they pay for the delivery. (If I do an e-book there will be no delivery charge.) Writing is a great tool in the healing process and your entry will help pave the way for others to leave the shadows of their silence. <br />
<br />
My book will be going to the editor in a few weeks and I am doing a courtesy check incase you may be interested. <br />
<br />
While we will never totally eliminate abuse, it is possible to lessen the victim population by this simple equation. Education + Awareness = Prevention. With this is mind I hope you will join the many other survivors and organizations that are joining me in their quest. <br />
<br />
Please visit my pages at http://sherry123456789.xanga.com/ You will learn that I am true to my cause, you can read the letters of support that I have received from professionals who serve abused people and vouch for my character, and you will learn more about who I am and why this book is so important. <br />
