One in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before their eighteenth birthday. It is one of Americaas darkest secrets. The statistics need to change and it begins with us. Patriciaas story is a positive testament to hope, survival, and beating the odds. It can be shared with everyone and applied to all types of abuse: physical, emotional, verbal, and sexual. The effects are far reaching and pervade every aspect of our society. Patricia is our family member, friend, co-worker or might even be us. Her journey follows the principle that life, as given, is about choice. The simple philosophy is that we cannot control what is done to us in lifea]i.e. being abused as a child, but we always have full control of how we react and deal with those tests, especially later on. With each positive choice we make, we give ourselves honor and integrity. We are not defined by what others have done to us, but rather we are products of what we have chosen to do for ourselves. Make the choice. The abuse and dysfunction stop here.
