Stay strong, sweetie

Sweetheart, I am so incredibly sorry that you've had to put up with an insurmountable amount of bullshit. The justice system failed you, and the cruelty you suffered at the hands of those in your community is even worse. But you did the right thing by turning in the guys who bypassed all human decency, which took exceptional courage on your part. Thank you for being so brave and strong, for managing to persevere even though the odds weren't in your favor. Thank you for lending your voice to the thousands of other rape survivors out there, who were not able to stand up for themselves. I wish you all of the very best in life, and I know that you'll do great things because you are a remarkable young woman. Despite any negative comments you may hear, please disregard those, because you are truly amazing. Stay strong, stay beautiful.

Ann Veal
