hello men:

i came across a great personal story on sexual abuse. i'll list it here:

Harper's magazine, January 2013, page 41, Barry Lopez, "Sliver of sky, Confronting the trauma of sexual abuse."

it is a powerful piece. i hope it benefits you.

An NPR interview with the author and the full text of the article is available at

I read the radio interview transcript a couple of weeks ago. I really liked what he said about why kids don't tell. Mostly the first question anyone I've ever told has asked me is "why didn't you tell?" Like its so simple to do.
