I have been really tied up with school lately so I haven’t had a lot of time to orchestrate the posts that I wanted to. However, I did just come across this amazing project on Facebook and I wanted to share. It’s called Project Unbreakable. It was started by 19 year old, Grace Brown who took pictures of people holding signs of quotes from their attackers. The abuse ranges from adult rape to child molestation. The goal is to bring more awareness to the issue through the art of photography. Her project has been featured in the media. Glamour Magazine and The Huffington Post just to name a few.
I wanted to share this because so many of these quotes hit home for me and I know that I could add to the ones that I already looked at.
Here would be some of my submissions:
“Dads and daughters do it all over the world, all the time. It’s totally normal.”
“It’s our little secret. If your mom finds out she would kill me or put me in jail. You love me too much to let that happen, right?” *** Unfortunately, even after my mother found out, she did nothing anyway and is still married to this man.
“I guess he just wanted to make you all his.” My mother after I confronted her when I was 18.
I could go on and on.
We may be scarred but we are not broken.
