Women, Rape, Guns and More of My Story

While surfing the Net tonight, I came across an absolutely terrific Web site called RebeccaGuns. The blogger (Rebecca) is a blogger, shooter, and partner in a holster-making company specializing in gear for women. She has lots of good stuff to say, and you should definitely check out her blog.

While I was reading, I came across a post titled “Women, Guns and Sexual Assault” that was so well done, I just had to comment. And in order to do so, I’m rethinking an earlier decision I made here. I’m going to share more of my story, more of the details of my own encounter with violence, because this topic is just too important not to talk about. I do so with some trepidation, because I know some people from my “real life” read this blog, but…as I said, this is too important not to talk about.

So, if you’re the squeamy type, you might want to read Rebecca’s post but not follow the “continue reading” link here. If you’re okay with reading difficult stuff for the sake of being better prepared, I’ll see you on the other side of the jump.
