Just in case you have not seen this post on the World section ! I am so happy ! so happy !

The breaking news came this morning : after being rejected for the second time by the Senate in France, the Parliement and the Senate came to a final agreement : victims of incest and other sexual abuse will have 20 years after their majority (18) to press charges instead of 10 years. This is such an achievement, we have struggled so much in the last few months. So many of us, male and female survivors, members of have had the courage to speak out, crushed the law of silence and stood up in front of the Senate house to protest for the very first time.
I am so emotional writing this message ! I want to scream it to the world !
We are now continuing the struggle to make sexual abuse against children a crime against humanity.
We have won ! I am so proud, so proud ! Now I am crying !
Love to you all

Mitakuye oyasin ! We are all related !

this is great!! I waited in silence for 18yrs before going to the police. Here in ontario I never thought that I may not be able to press chareges due to a gap in time too big for the courts to handle.

It will give many the chance to grow abit before "coming out". So maybe there will be more survivours growing into the people they were ment to be.

Cheers \:\)

scarman stands for the tatoos I have, and also the emotional scars I've accumulated from my past.
