Some Monsters are Real
Halloween is tonight and it always gets me thinking about scary stuff.
At Community Partners of Dallas only Vanessa, Pam and I like scary movies (27% of the staff). I mostly like the ones like The Sixth Sense or Rosemary's Baby, but I'll go to Paranormal Activity if someone will go with me. I think it's fun to be scared and yucky stuff doesn't stay in my head like it does for others.
NOTE: I absolutely love scary stuff on TV. Dexter, American Horror Story, etc. Give me a night in and an episode or two on the dvr and I'm in heaven (or hell, of course)...
Last night I didn't watch a scary show on TV, I met people who lived one.
Every Tuesday night, CPD holds group treatment therapy for child victims of sexual abuse. The program is called Heart and the kids and their non-offending family members meet and talk about what happened to them and how to get on with their lives.
I can't imagine ever getting over such a violation, can you? These kids know what real terror is. What degradation feels like. They know what monsters look like, smell like, sound like.
And that's a movie I never want another child to see.
