You knew I needed to vent, didn’t you?
Ten beautiful minutes of no topic madness, wonderful! I got a text message at around 5:30 from a friend begging me to be awake. At around 6:45 I finally get up and see it. I immediately call her, I mean, when your best friend texts you with that kind of urgency, you had BETTER respond. Come to find out, she was raped.
She got a call from a friend who was drunk. Two guys were with said friend, who were also drunk. One drunk guy decides he likes my non drunk friend. Well, I guess it’s cool to take sex when you want right?!
The shivers rushing up and down my spine are unreal. The flashbacks, the memories. It’s horrible. She went to the ER, thank God. However, she won’t file a police report or tell her boyfriend. Why? He’s a self centered, narcissistic, little man, that’s why. She doesn’t want to fight with him to just let it go. She doesn’t have it in her to deal with it, and I for one can’t blame her. Neither did I. The Navy made me.
Oh, and let me go on a tangent here. Before you strike down God, and ask why did he let this happen? God gave humanity free will, and some people choose to abuse theirs and be ugly towards people. Don’t blame God for this, blame the person with the free mind and the capability to make his or her own decisions.
I just know I need to be there for her, and I only wish I was closer so I could hug her right now, but we live a few states away. I hope she knows I’m a phone call away. If she ever needs me I’m here. I can’t make her report it, although I wish she would. I can be there as best as I can.
If you know of anyone who has been raped, or you personally have been raped or sexually assaulted, go to the hospital and report it right away!!
