This is awesome. I looked at the pictures of the guys and feel like I could easily fit in. That is reassuring to me. Seeing something like this and reading your story gives me hope in a real world way.

Nice job Mark,
You and the other guys are shining light on a dark topic.
Thank you for your bravery and your courage.
May it be encouraging for others to come forward out of their own darkness.

This is fantastic! This really humanizes the victims. It really moves all of us from statistics and numbers on a page to REAL people. Thanks for sharing this. Your work is so important!

Hi Mark. While I was sad to read about what you went through I am glad to see and hear that you have come so far in facing down some of those demons. Big, mega, hella Kudos to you for having the strength and courage to put your name and face out there like that with your story attached to it. That is inspirational to me, for sure. I'm not quite that brave. You are awesome! cool Peace,

Ken
