The moment I took my power back

TRIGGER WARNING!!! This is the courtroom video of my victim impact statement. I chose to stand at the podium because the bastard has a hearing deficit, and I wanted to make sure he heard me. This is raw, real, and it's not what I wrote. Not at all. But I opened my mouth, and the little girl who lay in her bed fantasizing about just this event spoke. It was hard. It was painful. I struggled to make myself say the words. But it was also freeing. Powerful. Healing.
