It is a sad world, so many children, so much apathy in this world. I truly believe fragmented vs. uniting all survivors regardless of gender, age or type (male/male, female/male, female/female/, male/female, transgender, etc) need a unifying voice.

Tom, I'm familiar with severe shame and self-degradation, and I'm sorry you went through what you did. I hope you find some peace of mind, Tom. Keep working towards self-love; it is achievable.
