Congratulations to the hard work and dedication of WoC, its Presidents, VP's, and support staff, including, its Admin, WalkingSouth, and moderators Geeders, TJjeff, FormerTexan, Pete2004, Ken Singer, Pufferfish, Dale English, and Ken Followell, and past, present and future staffers as well.

Also to the Weekend of Recovery staff and facilitators, for a continuous and spirited recovery program.

And the online Healing Circles, Sunday and Wednesday's. The grass roots peer movement, The Round Table on Monday's.

Last but not least, the members that have contributed, thousands of first hand experiences and support to struggling survivors of sexual abuse, a round of applause and praise for your courage.

May we all continue to enjoy the benefits of this charitable organization, MaleSurvivor, as we continue to make our 'home' a place for the gathering and growth of sexual abuse recovery.

To one and all, well done, I am proud to call myself a member of MaleSurvivor and a brother of survivors.

Sam

9000

An understated number, this simple, elegant and resourceful number today represents the progress, strength, and consistent efforts of thousands of survivors and supporters.

We Will Not be overwhelmed by our abusers heinous past actions!
We Will Not offend as we have been offended on!
We Will associate and heal with our brethren!
We Will not tolerate toxic people!
We Will revive, recover, and thrive as Victors!
We Will Advocate for personal and public Awareness!
We Will continue to succeed!

Welcome fellow survivors, this day, all 9000 of you, to MaleSurvivor, your safe home for healing and recovery.

How fitting this milestone happens on the American day of July 4, 2011, a day of Independence.

My fraternal brothers,

This boy/man has survived to live another day.

Thanks to this MaleSurvivor web site. To all those named above, whom give us the courage and guidance to declare our independence from our abusers.

Be it from sexual, emotional, physical & emotional abuse. Individually or a combination or all of them.

To those administrators/facilitators at those WoR's, to my fraternal brothers here. Now all 9000 of you.

I will succeed, I will survive.

Here I am home. Here you are a part of my fraternal family.

Here, I love each & every one of you.

Wishing us all well in declaring our Independence from our abusers. Heal well all, heal well.

" I will take that lost boys hand, and I will lead him from the depths of darkness, into the sunshine, forever into eternity." As he is me.

Pete..Irishmoose.

The numbers of online visitors to this site at any one time is now about 6 times what it was before the Penn. State stuff broke loose. CSA (child sexual abuse) is a huge problem in our society. It is largely unreported and covered up by the news media and those in authority.

10,000! While it is disheartening to see the destructive trauma these survivors have faced, it is empowering and a privilege to witness the recovery courage these men have accomplished. We are NOT what what were, we are so much more!

When I came into MS, there were perhaps 50 online on a good day (going by memory, I could be wrong). There were 418 max online on 7/2/12

Hi, my brothers.

For this boy/man MS is his home & you all are a part of my fraternal family.

No where else has this boy/man received compassion, understanding, hope & love in telling his deepest & innermost SECRETS than here in MS.
I get more out of therapy right here with my brothers, than I have ever received from all the T's that I have had.

For those of us fortunate to have been to a WoR & to experience an emotionally, mentally & physically exhausting experience with other (then) boys now men. Strangers at first, but fraternal brothers, linked together forever into eternity. Is something to indeed to celebrate.

Triumph of the human spirit to survive & to overcome things that were done to him in his youth.

Celebrate, my brothers, celebrate in healing.
"Free at last, Free at last." God almighty, Free at last. (MLK.)

Wishing my brothers well in healing.

"I will take that lost boys hand, and I will lead him from the depths of darkness, into the sunshine, forever into eternity." As he is me.

Pete..Irishmoose.

I watch the member counter too. It's a sad milestone, but a healthy one, too.

11,500!

More of our brothers and their supporters are finding our safe haven and taking advantage of the healing comfort they can enjoy here with their fellow survivors.

Let's keep welcoming them, let's get the word out!

It is wonderful to see so many people seeking support and help on their healing journey. It has reached survivors and supporters. Hopefully one day it will reach all the victims who are struggling and family and friends who have turned their backs on the victims to realize CSA is real and devastating to the survivor.

12,000 members.

And that's only the number willing to register a moniker here. Our work is cut out for us.

I can't imagine what it would be like not to have Malesurvivor.org.
