Marc,

It took courage to type "male rape victim" or whatever into the box and Google. It took courage to come to this place and read. It took courage to register. It took a great uncommon courage to write. It took courage to support the organization as a member.

You have been showing courage to all of us here for quite a while now.

Thanks,

Joe

You are a man of courage. A man of cowardice would not be attempting to make his life better. He would not be facing the past, and working at accepting what he cannot change. He would not be looking at himself, in attempts to learn more of himself. You are a man of courage, of strength, and of dignity. Good for you.

Marc,

Would a man without courage face what you're facing, and LIVE with it?

Nay.

It was in the comic book "Daredevil" that I read the following quote, "a man without fear is a man without hope."

You're facing your fear and you're managing it. THAT'S the mark of courage.

Peace and love,

Scot

Marc,

You are definately living with courage. You are walking away from the fear you lived in. Keep that up.

Take care and thanks for posting,
Bill
