Following Therese Zumi Sumner…. (1)
A well-known physician here in Vancouver, after many long years of providing medical care to the residents of the Downtown Eastside, was said to have stated that he had never met a drug addict in the area who did not have a history of sexual abuse.
Now they’re at risk in the fentanyl/opioid crisis. The costs of sexual abuse just ripple down through time.
I did not have a history of sexual abuse. And look how long it’s taken me to recover myself after 51 years of dissociation from extreme physical abuse (I used to call myself the Humpty Dumpty Man). (2)
I cannot imagine how I could recover my balance if you added sexual abuse to that burden.
Now that the genie is out of the bottle – i.e., now that Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuse has captured the public’s attention – let’s not allow it to be put back in.
Remember the rumors that Trump may be releasing details of JFK’s assassination this coming week. If you’d permit me to say it, don’t allow male news of a predominantly-male cabal grab the spotlight again from women keeping their attention on the Truth Commission that has arisen, #METOO.
Don’t allow the media to set your agenda.
Use the solidarity that #METOO has ignited to press the issue of sexual abuse home. Turn #METOO into a National Inquiry into Sexual Abuse in your country. Press home your agenda.
No more sexual abuse on this planet. It will not be tolerated. But we have to say it. This is the time of the resurgence of the Divine Feminine. The voice of women, the voice of the public is destined to be heard.
We have to mobilise public opinion on sexual abuse, which is rampant in some of our countries. We have to say, “No more. Enough is enough.”
We are not colonials. We are not under the thumb of King George III. We are a freeborn people, taking back the streets, the night, and our lives.

(2) My personality shattered into a thousand pieces after my Dad yelled at me from what seemed like less than six inches from my face. I never regained my confidence and feeling of security after that for 51 years.
It was a long journey back, minus sexual abuse. I cannot imagine how hard it would have been if I’d had to grapple with that one as well. My respect goes out to lightworkers who’ve had to deal with it.
