Sexual Violence in PostSecret

Sexual Violence in PostSecrets

As a weekly reader of PostSecret, I regularly find examples of sexual violence that people have been holding as their deepest secrets. Many don't or haven't come to the conclusion that what happened was violence at all and are still living with shame and embarrassment and I ache for them because this is the world we live in, and while I like PostSecret, it pains me that a the receiving end of a post card is the only place some people feel safe to disclose. This week had 3 - 2 from victims and 1 from a perpetrator.
