“Together We Heal” says…Thank You! Gracias! Vielen Dank! Dankie! Merci! @Together_WeHeal
I wanted to take a moment to say thank you. In a short amount of time, our blog for “Together We Heal” has already had over 5,700 views from 75 countries. Let me say that again, 75 countries!! While to some these numbers may not mean a lot or even be as impressive as those who get 1K – 5K readers a day or week, to us they are AMAZING!
We’ve been blogging for 7 months and our first 2 we averaged about 250 per. Then from Dec-Feb we saw about 400-500 per. Then came March and April. We hit over 1,000 and then toppled 2,000 respectively. Already we are on a pace to hit Somewhere around 2,700!!! Please understand that I’m giving you this information for one reason and one reason only….to say THANK YOU for getting the message out and telling folks where they can come to find a safe forum for survivors of CSA, get free counseling if needed, learn how to begin the process of healing and not the least being, how to better protect our children from these sexual predators and expose their methods! We are only able to do any of these things because of YOU and how much you care. Accept my heartfelt and sincere gratitude for being a part of this movement to help.
And these numbers are also amazing because they tell us that what we are writing, what we are sharing, and what we are hoping to send out to help survivors of CSA to begin and continue their healing process; to help educate the public on matters of CSA; and how we can better protect our children has an audience that reaches around the globe!
It tells us that what we have to say is important to you and I want all of you to know just how much you are appreciated, respected and prayed for daily. As we move forward, day by day, we get more calls and emails asking for help. And it’s because you get the word out. You are letting survivors of CSA know they have a place to come that’s safe, that provides counseling and is here solely for the purpose of helping others.
If ever there are issues, questions or topics that you feel need covering, please don’t hesitate to call or email us and ask. Like I said, we are here to help, and while I try to stay on top of things, I know I don’t know it all…far from it. But I do know that we have amazing folks reading the blog who are compassionate, caring and want to help as well. So please tell us when there’s something we need to address in order to maintain a high level of knowledge, an empathetic and sympathetic understanding of your needs and most importantly…that you know we genuinely care about each and every one of you.
Whether you are a survivor, the loved one of someone whose endured CSA, or a concerned parent wanting to know what they can do to better ensure the safety of their child; we are here for you, all of you. As I said, I know I don’t have all the answers, but what we have in spades as an organization, is a group of people devoted and determined to do whatever they can to achieve all of the aforementioned goals.
That’s why we give out our emails, phone numbers, blog and twitter sites, and tell you about the other groups out there with the same ambition as ours. Those being; to guide survivors in the best way we can for each individual, and to do our damnedest to put an end to CSA.
So I will end I as began…
…thank you, thank you all so very much from the bottom of my heart!
