The Day After

There is a trigger warning on this reblog.
I cannot imagine how painful it must have been to write these words for my friend KATM. She is a survivor of horrific, and mean some of the most horrifying abuse I have read.

The monsters of the world need to be revealed for what they have done to the innocent. Justice needs to prevail in our world and we cannot see that if everyone chooses to look away.
I pray for this friend, this soul, this precious person who went through hell and is brave enough to write about it and keep moving forward.
