From now until December 31st you can cheer up a prison rape survivor by going to the Words Of Hope website and simply typing a message. Apparently this is a very serious problem in jails with 9.6% of former prisoners saying they’ve been sexually victimized – from a survivor:
Getting raped destroys you from the inside out, and it takes a part of you and puts it where you can’t reach it. My momma quit writing me because she found out I was married to another man in here. She told me I was sick and she did not want to write anymore. And she stopped. See, she knows I got raped, but she doesn’t understand how I’m surviving now. I ran to another man and married him so I wouldn’t get raped again. My thoughts are so crazy on this; at times I do not understand them. The fear is so great in my heart.
