Today author of Shattered Reality, Kimberly Elliott-Cheryl has graced this side of the blogosphere. Please welcome her and leave her plenty of comments. I will be giving away a copy of her book Shattered Reality to one lucky commenter at the end of this week so comment away!
Grief, pain and tears are reality. No one makes it through this life without them. In writing Shattered Reality, I tried to put content around the multiple feelings that afflicted my family and myself as a result of Child Sexual Assault (CSA). Taking the journey as an author was not an easy one but has helped me with my inner struggle to understand and deal with CSA. I also hope it will help others understand this silent epidemic.
Although my family’s experiences with Child Sexual Assault are unique to us, they are sadly too similar to so many other families who have had to deal with the aftermath of abuse. At the point of disclosure, there were so many wonderful books written by adults who had survived sexual assault as children; so many web sites by survivors. Unfortunately, there wasn’t anything available for my immediate family members or myself on how to deal with our feelings as secondary survivors. No handbook on how to deal with a judicial system that doesn’t want to prosecute cases of incest. There are so many parents who are suffering with no help and no resources; no validation for their feelings. I am hopeful Shattered Reality will help them validate what they are experiencing and feeling as well as provide resources for assistance during their unique journeys. They are not alone. I want others to realize: while life is not fair, broken lives can be fixed. Healing and survival can arise from darkness.
