Child Abuse

I just saw the film Precious. You should too.
Stories about child abuse reduce me to tears every time. This was one of the more horrific stories in terms of the level of abuse and degradation and it was hard to watch. It spoke to the hope and resiliency of the soul though and I like that. It also helps put my childhood in better perspective, encouraging me to be more resilient and just get over everything already. If someone can live through much worse abuse then I ever faced then I should be able to put my past in the past and thrive.
It's a work in progress.
