The psychological experience of a rape survivor and her story of recovery & transformation.
Last year when my daughter told me that her college friend had been raped, I grieved for a young woman I did not know. When I received a message today that Mary Beth Griggs had written an article about her experience, I will admit that I did not want to read about it.

Mary Beth deserves to have her voice heard, as do so many others who do not have the strength to speak out. Hers is a story not only of violation and tragedy, but also of triumph, survival, and hope. I am honored that she has allowed me to reprint her story here. The following words are hers:
