Cami, this breaks my heart. Wide. Open. The abuse, the pain, the complicit behavior, the self-loathing … that was an enormous load to carry. I’m relieved to know you were able to find the courage to tell your son and cousin. Some secrets are like festering wounds that only the light of truth and sharing can heal.

Thank for your nod. But you are the one to be recognized. I’m glad you’re still with us. And I’m convinced you have many stories to share with us.

We’re all waiting.
