S.A.Battaglia reviews No Working Title – a life in progress

.

For sexual abuse/sexual assault awareness month, I got a chance to read No Working Title: A Life in Progress by Dr. John A. King and was deeply moved by his story.
.
It reminded me of my own. I was abused. I have friends and family who were abused. I think of their stories, and all the ones living that nightmare right now.
.
In his poem Childhood, Dr. John A. King says:
Childhood
Violently shattered
Shards of innocence scattered
Ripples on a pond
Never to return
.
As accurate as that is, know that there’s hope in, through, and on the other side of abuse. There’s purpose for the broken pieces, they can be put to good use.
.
To those who are still in it, to those who are struggling because of it, as isolating as it might feel, hear me when I say you’re not alone. ‘Cause you’re not alone.
