Interesting conversation today. My nail tech has been bragging up my book! Wonderful news, make me feel good. She’s enthusiastically encouraging others to buy it, borrow it and somehow read it! Another lady who works in the salon was talking to me today that she wants to support me, but she just can’t do it. She just doesn’t want to know that these things happen. She doesn’t want to know about ugly things in the world. And she said it so sweetly, so earnestly and honestly.
If only it were that easy to make it stop, just don’t look, turn away, go deaf and blind
If only…… She has four young daughters. I told her that statistically it could already be one of her daughters. She said, Oh that’s silly, they would tell me.
My reply, Don’t think they don’t know how you feel about hearing and seeing the ugly things. Don’t think that they don’t love you for it …. they do. If the unthinkable happens… they will hate you for it.
If only we lived in a world where this was an open conversation and children were made safe armed with knowledge that they do have rights about thier bodies.
