What others are saying

“…This is a wonderful collection of stories that my mom absolutely adored. I recommend the stories by Wendy Lynn Clark, Alison Miller Boniface, Robert F. Walsh, and Susan Reynolds, but they’re all great…” by Amazon.com reviewer Kristin

What’s my connection?

Every two minutes, someone in the United States today is sexually assaulted. But according to that same source, sexual assaults have declined by 60% since 1993. [1]

I want to believe that’s because of people who saw something they didn’t like and spoke up about it.

I want to believe it’s because people are no longer allowing themselves to be victims.

I want to believe it’s because of people who had the courage to challenge the predators who rely on silence.

I want to believe it’s because of my mother.
