It’s Courtney, who wrote the letter you answered so beautifully in Where was God when my 9-year-old son was drugged and raped?. Thank you for that. Reading that piece and all of the responses moved me so much, and really helped my healing process. I have started to come out of the state of frozen terror/guilt I was in. I have even started taking college courses! Your blog gave me courage and a beginning amount of freedom. After years of encouragement from my boyfriend, I finally signed up for classes! I am in my 4th week of a philosophy class, and boy is it interesting. I now have a feeling of freedom in my life, of moving forward. Thank you for what you and your readers do.
So. There we have it. Healing happens—and as it happens for one, it happens for all.
To say this sort of thing wouldn’t happen if it weren’t for the depth and caliber of the “comments” people leave on my blog is an understatement.
