Post to Our Site!
An important part of our mission and the success of our Foundation is based on our ability to “show” societies throughout the world that the effects of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) have become pandemic. This will be a daunting task without you taking the action we, as children, were not able to; which is to speak out. Hundreds of millions of people (probably over 1 billion) across the globe have been affected by childhood sexual abuse. The foundation is seeking funds to help “one” adult survivor at a time receive therapeutic support through its capital raising efforts. Together we need to stand up and be counted so that we can help not only ourselves, but also help future generations heal from these vile perpetrations that were hurled upon us through no fault of our own. We can no longer continue to live in quiet desperation. The following are some thoughts on why to post on our website:
- By posting your childhood photo (or another photo you feel comfortable with) and caption to our site you can begin your own personal healing journey into the impact that childhood sexual abuse has made in your life, and all the while show the hundreds of millions of survivors across the globe that we are not alone.
- Your courage now will also help future generations see that it is a vital part of the healing process to discuss their experiences to help break the cycle of childhood sexual abuse.
- By posting your photo and caption to the site you will potentially help the Let Go...Let Peace Come In Foundation secure both private grants and federal funding so we can raise capital and assist survivors so that they can receive the therapeutic recovery they so desperately need.
If you are reluctant to post consider this:
- Many survivors fear they will be rejected and that their story will not be believed. At the Let Go...Let Peace Come In Foundation we have a compassionate group of men and women (who all have been touched by their own experiences related to sexual abuse) and they are ready to listen to your story without judgment or doubt, and to support you as we begin the journey and relay the message to the world.
- Please know that it only takes “one” time, no matter how horrific or how slight, for the damage to the brain synapses to become immediate.1 The impressions of those perpetrated acts are forever ingrained into our subconscious.
- If you are a survivor of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of a family member or close family friend and you fear that by divulging your story you will be the catalyst that breaks apart your family or your friendships; that has already been done for you by the perpetrators themselves.
The healing journey for each of us is a process that cannot be mapped out by another person. And while our journey is an individual effort, it takes the support of others around us to help us know that we are not alone. Many who suffer from the effects of CSA enter into 12 step programs (AA, NA,, SA, SIA, OA etc.) as a result of their addictive/compulsive behaviors. These behaviors were/are coping strategies that some victims of CSA resort to in an attempt to deal with the resulting trauma of CSA when they see no way out and they try to deal with it on their own. One of the most notable 12 step programs is Alcoholics Anonymous. The wisdom of AA's “12 promises” tells us that: “We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.....We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace.....No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others.”
