Wow today's panel was just... Wow. I am honestly so proud of every person on that panel, every person that shared their story with the class, every person that opened up through the note cards or questions and every person opening up right now through their blogs. These people are extremely brave to have gone through something so horrible and still have the courage to speak up so that someone else doesn't go through what they went through. It is devastating that so many people in our 60+ class have gone through some form of violence in their life. Therefore please be careful in the way you approach people or the things you say in a public place because you never know when something you do or say can trigger a bad memory in someone around you. I'm glad that some of the panelists found this experience very therapeutic and I hope that anyone else going through something similar can find relief soon.
