Thanks, Lancer. That's a good one. I wonder if it was possible to stand up for someone else, a vulnerable kid, because it wasn't you. You know, it's often easier for us to stand up for someone else rather than ourselves. And, yet, it's not easy. It's never easy to stand up to an aggressor. And standing up for someone else can lift us up in our own lives, plus, that act is what separates us from the abusers out there. Instead of victimizing the defenseless, we protect them. That's huge. In fact, just writing that has brought, literally, tears to my eyes. Thank you for what you did those years ago.
