It Happened Here
Here are some of the submissions we got for the "It Happened Here" Feature. Some of these have been changed to remove identifying features. We also had some courageous and touching stories shared at the Open Mic.
Each Voice that speaks out, makes other victims feel less alone, and less to blame. Each voice makes it easier for others to break the silence. Rape Culture can only exist when we look away and don't see it for what it is. Thanks to all these courageous voices for starting the process.

Suicide Note by Janice Mirikita
An Asian American college student was reported to have jumped to her death from her dormitory window. Her body was found two days later under a deep cover of snow. Her suicide note contained an apology to her parents for having received less than a perfect 4.0 GPA.
How many notes written
Ink smeared like bird prints in snow.
Not good enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough
Dear mother and father,
For disappointing you.
Ive worked very hard,
Not good enough.
