I’ve lost count of the women who’ve reached out to me with their stories of being raped as teenagers and having to walk away without justice. Many of them have wanted to die but managed to hang on and rebuild their lives.
It has helped me and angered me.
The Theo Fleury Victor Walk Team also reached out to let me know that Theo will dedicate a day of his upcoming walk to Rehtaeh.
What a wonderful thing to do.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at your time of loss. In honor of Rehtaeh the Theo Fleury Victor Walk Team is dedicating a day of the walk to her .
The “Victor Walk” is an important part of the Victor movement which will bring attention to this important, sensitive and often misunderstood issue of Child Sexual Abuse that has plagued our country and been neglected by our politicians and our courts for far too long.
Theo will start his walk on May 14, 2013 at the “Child Abuse Monument” located in Toronto and will finish at the steps of “Parliament” in Ottawa on May 23, 2013 where he will read aloud his original unedited victim impact statement on behalf of himself and all victims of sexual abuse.
Rehtaeh will never be forgotten! We will be thinking of you and the rest of Rehtaeh’s family now and in the days to come.
Join Theo Fleury on the steps of Parliament oncMay 23, 2013!
