A Trooper in life

Hi everybody, thank you so so so very much for your love and support that you have given me for my post yesterday.  It was overwhelming, however, to find out that about half of them (I got a few facebook messages too), talked about my own bloggy friends' anniversaries.  It gives me chills that statistics show one in four women will experience sexual assault in her life.  That statistic seemed to be plastered all over my comments yesterday.  This is the reason I make myself relive the torture each year. It makes me angry, it makes me remember the pain, it makes me shake.  It also makes me remember that I need to do things, tangible things to make this world a safer place for girls who were like me, girls who were like a lot of you. So thank you. Thank you so much for your honesty and your support.

Anyway, on to the real story I wanted to share! If you haven't heard about them before, Turning Tradgedy into a Love Story is a story about Patrick and Jessica.  Patrick is a soldier who was shot during the Ft. Hood shootings on November 5, 2009.  Jessica is his loving fiancee (I think they are engaged?), who writes about his recovery and the process.  Well, recently she wrote a piece that screamed injustice.  I just want to share.  It's about the minuscule portion of people who send them mail that really tears Jessica down.  I'd love it if you could show her some support too.  She also has an INCREDIBLE story. If you haven't read their blog, it's a wonderful story... I think you should take a looksie!
