  2. #MeToo – The rape happened in college (probably sometime in 1972). I didn’t realize what had happened to me until I later when I became part of the women’s movement and learned about the anti-rape movement. Later, I experienced domestic violence, which happened in 2004. I was on the cusp of getting trapped in a cycle, but thank God for the women’s movement because I knew there were domestic violence counselors to turn to when I needed help. I had some knowledge but the counselor opened my eyes: learning about behaviors that are red flags and connecting the dots between them made me realize that I had escaped with my life. These traumas have had more impact than I care to admit.
