My Amazing Idea ! Everyone Please Read And Help! Very Important!

When i was 12 years old i was hanging out with two of my friends and my "boyfriend". In my opinion a "boyfriend" at that age was a guy to hold my hand and give me bear hugs. On January 24, the day after my mother's birthday, I went to go hang out with the three of them. We had gone to my "boyfriend's" so he could grab a jacket because it was still cold then. His mother, uncle, and aunt were all there as well as my two best friends who were one year older and two years older than me. When we got there we were invited for dinner. We all agreed to stay, but i was not going to eat because they were having crab and i dislike seafood. The uncle was watching something in the living room so we had went into the mothers room to watch sponge-bob. My friends had gone into the kitchen to get their food, or at least that is what i had thought. They were all in on the plan for my "boyfriend" to get laid. Now remember, i was 12 had sex was never even a thought in my mind. That is when he did it. Not going to get into details but it has changed my life forever. Later on i had found out that he was 17! He had been a bad guy from day one and was already on probation. He had reported what he had done to his counselor. Then within a week they had reported it to his P.O. (Probation Officer) and then was reported to the prosecutors. The prosecutors had called my mother to bring me in. At this point me and my "boyfriend" had broken up but he had told me if he told anyone about what had happened he "would have people waiting at my door step ready to kill me as soon as i stepped out". Later on during the investigation i had found out that he was a gang member. I had lied for him for over a year. One night i couldn't take it anymore. I blurted it out to my mother and she called the prosecutors and had told them. They came to my house and we had to contact him and much more. He was sentenced to 2 years of probation and Megan's Law. Now to get to my point I have research and i can make a group to go to schools and make children aware. There are programs for drugs and bullying but nothing with rape. The focus will not only be on rape but standing up and saying something., choosing the right people as friends, and much more. I need parents, friends, and victims to help me. I am now 16 years old and dropped out of school and have severe anxiety and just got through post traumatic stress and depression. No one should have to go threw what me and many others have. I want to stand up and make a difference. Don't be shy. Please help!! Thank you.

I agree! Something needs to be said! Our society looks at rape as such a "taboo" topic and so when something is said people are looked at differently and no one wants to stand up and actually do something about it. I know how hard it is to say something but then looking at my own experience it would have been a help had someone said something then.

I know this story is of last year but I think it is a great idea. I honestly don't understand how so many people have read it and no one has anything to say about it.
