One of my friends was raped by her brother this morning. I feel pretty damn useless. I mean, right after it happened when she texted me, there was stuff I could do. Like call 911 and get them out there, contact her boyfriend, advise her not to shower or bathe till she'd had the rape kit. But there's really NOTHING I can say that will make this situation suck any less.
I remember why I wished prayer was true now. Because I wanted to have something to offer when someone was in pain I couldn't fix. On my other blog I give links to RAINN and other child sexual abuse charities so if anyone wants to help others like her, rather than praying for her which we all kind of know is pointless, you can do that here
. I'm just so exhausted. I can't wait for my son to go to sleep so I can finally just bawl my eyes out over this.
