I was going to post a nice calm picture of a lovely sunset. However, today I found out that one of my oldest and dearest friends was repeatedly raped by various men, most of whom she loved and trusted, from the age of 5 'till in her 20s. And although she tried to tell someone, in the 70s and 80s this type of thing was not spoken about, and she became too scared to trust enough to tell anyone else.
Angry does not even begin to describe how I feel at the moment, and therefore my peaceful sunset will have to wait. This is for my friend, myself and all the other women (and men) out there who have been preyed upon by cowards who think they have the right to do whatever they want to another person.
