  1. Thank you so much for re-blogging this post. I feel strongly about this topic, as you may be able to tell! I look forward to getting to know you better through your blog!

    • Thank you for writing it.
      Cathy had told me about you. I’m glad I found your blog..

  2. I’m glad that justice was done, and I hope that the survivors of the abuse experience healing. Still, it’s difficult for me to feel joy over any aspect of this sad situation.
