Everybody,

The letter I wrote last week is online at http://www.cleveland.com/letters/plaindealer/index.ssf?/base/opinion/105705691165340.xml and there's a note.

I'm so happy I could skip my coffee! \:D

Blacken, it was a real good thing you noticed the story. Victor, I love your suggestion about sending our own message.

Thanks,

Joe

Joe - well done!! Boy am I ever proud of you!! I know it took courage and real commitment to speak out with your name in public. It took a lot of strength to open yourself to your family and share that terrible secret eating at all survivors. BUT you did it!! Not only is it a personal triumph and B-I-G healing step forward for you but you threw out a life line, a life preserver to those floundering in the sea of abuse...you showed them a doorway to this site!! How many people will seek help, relief and surviving because they now have a place to go? You have made a great contribution!! Thanks Joe!

If just one boy or man comes forward your efforts will be rewarded Joe.

WTG bro Joe!

WTG all of us!

Just think of the possibilities from this one article, and multiply that by the vast number of letters, articles, etc that so many of us male survivors could write & have published all around the world!
