Life After Rape

I have been training as a new volunteer for our local sexual assault services and rape crisis hotline; and as I sit through classes every night, I am saddened, disappointed, angry, and devastated to learn the laws that lack or do not exist at all to not only help these victims of all ages and their families but also to provide them the help they truly need for the long haul.

Rape and sexual assault are so hard for people to hear that local high schools have kicked us out of their offices when we requested to speak with children about bullying, sexting, sex, rape, and the ramifications of these actions that our young adolescents so rarely think about until it is far too late and sometimes young lives are taken at their own hands as a result of these frightening circumstances.

As you know I have announced I will be running for political office very soon to help my local area and I want you to know that I will be adding new bills to my agenda to write and push through Congress. No one should go through the struggles alone and I want all affected, including the children of victims, to never fear to leave a situation in order to stick with their bread winner. Times are tough but not nearly has harsh as a home with rape, molestation, violence, pain, and tears. Government assistance was set up for these dire situations rather than those individuals that are not using it for that purpose.

My intent to hold office is to make lives better and citizens happier. This is a beautiful country but we can do far better to protect everyone with resources, education, help, and care. By working together as Americans we can honestly make on our promise of a better tomorrow. Peace, honor, trust, and appreciation. -Jenn

  1. I trust & believe that you will follow your dreams & goals. We need more like you & you absolutely should run for leadership & continue to make a difference. I wish you great success.


  2. With regards to sex crimes etc... the prevailing mentality seems to be, 'Don't ask, don't tell' or trying to rationalise that it only happens to a certain group or type of person...which is wrong and misguided.

    Good luck to you! With education comes awareness !

  3. Go for it! We need more voices that are vocal in their request to be heard on this subject...
