There’s no worse thing that you can do to a person than take away their power. When you do that you’re taking away their will, their freedom and movement. Victims of rape lives have been forever changed, because of this transfer of power. They’ve become withdrawn finding it hard to trust anymore, because of this it makes it difficult to form lasting relationships. The emotional distress that a woman suffers from the physical abuse of rape can dictate their well-being. Not only does it take away their freedom at the time of the rape, but it forever holds them captive throughout their lives. In my book “Why Ruin Another Life”, a dysfunctional Mississippi family is struggling through three generations of rape that effects their lives and the people around them. Rape not only destroys a life, but lives, so when you rape someone you’re not only raping that person, you’re raping people for generations to come.
