Face to our Story
So last week we were called and asked to put our faces on camera. We went to where the Shamed movie is being filmed and shared our story, all while the cameras were rolling. Strangely it wasn't uncomfortable or weird... I mean yes the cameras and mic in my face was weird but sharing our story wasn't. I don't know whether we will appear in the film or not but the fact that we were willing to share our story made me strangely happy. If only I had had that resource last year when this horror came to light. What a strength and encouragement it could have been to me. I do not know when or how the film is being released but I am so thankful that someday soon it will be. That women and men will have yet another resource in their arsenal. I just wanted to share that. I am very grateful to the producers of this film and hope that it will truly help many in facing this battle. And don't you all worry. If we do appear on the film we will most certainly make ourselves known here so you aren't wondering whether every person on it is me or not. Keep fighting your battles. Life is good and if it doesn't feel good right now, I promise it will soon as you keep enduring.
