When you are a child and horrible things happen to you, you don't really know how to feel. I was looking at the new PostSecrets just now, and this one depicts it perfectly. I experienced some things that no little kid should ever have to go through. Now as a mommy, I pray every single day that my babies won't ever have anything like that happen to them.

Lower in the post I read this secret. After years of therapy, I can agree with that statement completely. "I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become."

1 in 4 girls are sexually victimized before 18.
Most offenders are someone the child knows and trusts.

Be careful with your kids. Some things can't be undone.

This is so true, and I can relate, unfortunately. I don't even have kids yet and I fear for them already. I fear for my friend's kids, my family, etc.

These secrets were two that jumped out at me this morning too.
