"There are stars whose radiance is visible on Earth though they have long been extinct. There are people whose brilliance continues to light the world though they are no longer among the living. These lights are particularly bright when the night is dark. They light the way for humankind." — Hannah Senesh . poet . playwright . paratrooper (1921–1944) . Carrie Fisher's 'Shockaholic'
A statement that I felt I needed to write and that I feel needs to be read: “Healing from child abuse of any kind takes more than a lifetime. If there are still scars remaining, which there are, then there exists evidence. Years, I have been trying to get beyond what my abusers did to me. Oh, yes, I am in a different place than I was when they were around me but everything I do has a cause and effect from those buried and not so buried memories. Intimacy is the greatest thing they destroyed in me. I have tried pulling that part back together but it always haunts me. I feel hurt quite easily when there is nothing that has been done to cause this hurt I feel. It is just something the abusers taught me to expect. So writing this rather intimate description of intimacy is my way of telling my abusers fuck you. I can find a place inside of me that you were not able to completely destroy and I have been and am trying my Damndest to heal that part of me.” ~the secret keeper~

I will admit to a secret-moi guessed wrong. I thought the line from the song was Adele singing: “Set Fire To the Rain.” Oops!!!
