“You are not a victim. No matter what you have been through, you're still here. You may have been challenged, hurt, betrayed, beaten, and discouraged, but nothing has defeated you. You are still here! You have been delayed but not denied. You are not a victim, you are a victor. You have a history of victory.”

Only restitution, forgiving yourself and others, compassion, repentance and living with dignity will ever erase the past.”

“Damien has died and gone straight to boy heaven,' Shaunee said as soon as we were out of earshot
'Hey it's about time those kid stop acting like ignorant rednecks and behaved like they had some sense,' I said.
'She doesn't mean that, even though we agree with you,' Erin said 'She means Mr Jack the cute-gay-new-kid Twist.
'Now why in the world would you think he's gay?' Stevie Ray asked.
'Stevie Rae, I swear you have got to broaden your horizons, girl,' Shaunee said.
'Okay, I'm lost too. Why do you think Jack's gay?' I asked.
Shaunee and Erin shared a long-suffering look, then Erin explained. Jack Twist is yummy Jake Gyllenhaal's totally gay cowboy character from Brokeback Mountain.'
'And please just please! Anyone who chooses that name and who looks all geeky like that is totally, completely playing for Damian's team.'
'Huh' I said.
'Well, I'll be 'Stevie Rae said 'you know i never did see that movie. It didn't come to the Cinema 8 in Henrietta.'
'You don't say?' Shaunee said.
'Please. I'm so shocked,' Erin said.

S.L. Vaden
“When your trust has been betrayed, the only thing to do is live, learn and let go. Otherwise the betrayal done by another will turn into hate for them. But they will not feel this hate, it will only hurt you more, growing bigger and darker. So, live, learn and let go. By living, it means they did not hurt you so deep that you can not move forward. Learn, learn to not trust this person again, and to make more of a sound judgement in the future. Letting go doesn’t mean forgetting. It means that you have let go of the pain it caused. And by not forgetting, you will learn and move forward from the betrayal of the past.”
S.L. Vaden

“The mummy felt betrayed, like when a spouse agrees on a movie you decided to watch only to put on a different movie as you go to the bathroom, having to sit through the whole movie and not argue about it because it’s not worth fighting over, just boiling up inside and remembering it for later when they want their coffee with half-and-half, knowing that you put 2-percent milk in there and they won’t know, but you will.”

Stewart Stafford
“Once A Sister by Stewart Stafford

In a mirror, admirably still call yourself sister?
Of festering, viperine plot and scaling threat,
Cast your brother out as a street mongrel,
Then counted coins from his dwelling's sale.

If this is a blood relative, yours is now poison,
And tears his, for none shall believe his truth,
That family acted so cruelly in his innocence,
What made his loved ones mortal enemies?

No apology will ever pass those lips, not one,
Explanations merely justify the unforgivable,
Sober fact imparts the brazen cuckoo nests,
With ignominy's profits in bricks and mortar.
