We Shatter Silence story from Suffolk, VA
When I was in the 7th grade, I was attacked by a guy from my grade in my local middle school. He threatened me and all I could do was sit there because he had me pinned against a wall. He then tried to rape me. It seemed like hours I was in that bathroom, turns out it was only minutes. I was so relived when one of my friends heard him talking and came into the bathroom. He saved me from a lot of things that could still effect me today. I still feel bad for not fighting him back, and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about it.
