Predators flourish when the prey waste time fighting amongst or distrusting each other ; rather than working together to bring down the predator.
Animals get this and survive .
Humans don’t – and allow themselves and their daughters and sons to be raped, emotionally , spiritually and physically .
We don’t hear each other’s cries and we hold each other responsible some how for “falling ” for the siren song of the predator .
For our sake , for our children sake and even for the ultimate sake of the predator ,they ought not be allowed to continue their path of injury. We, the Mothers and fathers of the village, must take responsibility for safety of our village .
We must say that there is no room for the many faces of rape in our culture . We must protect and empower the victim, contain and heal the perpetrators – and allow true safety exist.
