One in three Native American women will be raped in her lifetime. This two-part series tells the story behind this shocking statistic — a story of both human tragedy and systematic failure of criminal justice on and off of reservations. This series led to the reopening of a sexual assault case, Congressional hearings, and the launching of a website to manage donations to help sexual assault victims living

How Often Does Sexual Assault Occur?
* 1, 397 sexual assaults occur in Canada every day.
*Once every minute a woman or child in Canada is sexually assaulted (forced sexual touching)
*A woman is raped (forced to have sexual intercourse) every 17 minutes in Canada

First Nations / Aboriginals
*The incidence of child sexual abuse in some Aboriginal communities is as high as 75 to 80% for girls under 8 years of age.
*57% of Aboriginal women have been sexually abused.

This is an ugly topic and I do not expect many people will read this blog or share it. But I know that if even one person is saved from suicide or one abuser is caught  this small effort on my part is worthwhile.
You see my father was a sexual predator that even raped his own son. I know what the pain and the shame is about. I know how hard it is to live with this.
I hope that any victims reading this will find the courage to either begin to heal or continue to heal. 
I pray that abusers who are reading this will seek help and turn yourself into the police.
I pray that any who know an abuser will tell the police.
