Kathy is a childhood friend of mine.  We all lived a "camelot" type of life; often unaware what was going on in the homes behind closed doors.  It was an era that no much was talked about that was personal nature.  Decades later stories are being told.

Her story involves being sexually assaulted by an older boy in the neighborhood when she was a small child, who later committed suicide when he was a grown man.  It wasn't until much later in life that her father affirmed what had happened wasn't right, and he had tried to contact the father of the boy at the time with no avail.  

Join us as we talk about Kathy's story and the time to tell as we begin a series of shows in April focused to increase sexual assault awareness, among other stories of survival.

BEYOND WORDS LIVE is a platform for survivors to tell their stories in their own words.  See also http://beyondwordslifecoach.blogspot.com/ for more about the healing processes.
