Congratulations!

I can scarcely imagine how difficult it was for you to write that letter, but to post it to your blog must have required a special brand of courage. While I hope your family finds the healing it needs more than anything I hope this helps you in your own recovery effort : )

Oh yeah! That's what I'm talking about. Awesome. Don't look back. Don't second guess. You've absorbed enough. This push-back is 40 years in the making.

You found your voice ad it sounds strong. Although you did this for you and this is what needed to be said, you've also done this for us. We need these examples of men taking charge.

You shown those of us who're aren't quite ready how to be brave. We're watching, Gary. And we're rooting for you all the way!

Good for you, Gary, it's great to confront. I hope this experience will help you push forward in stopping the abusers that are still in your family and gain confidence.

One more victory over shame, guilt and fear.

Once we speak up and speak out, we control it instead of the other way around.

Good job, Gary.

CONGRATS BRO. NICE WORK AND A HELL OF ALOT OF COURAGE IN YOUR HEART. CAN'T SAY ENOUGH.

As A Matter Of Fact- EveryonevWho Cares To See This- Who Is A Member Of This Board Focused On Healing And Taking Back What Was Hidden FromThem- Is Equally As Strong, And Who's Courage Shines Through- Every Time You Open Your Eyes In The Morning. Every Time A Survivor Wakes Up, The Perp Loses That Much More Ground. Be Sure You Take Back Much More Ground During Your Day, Leaving Your Time Not Wasted, But Well-Used.

OverCome Every Obstacle With The Un-fortunate Luck Of Being In Your Way.
