Thought

What is the one thing that the Catholic church, Universities,  Military, and Congress have in common? They all have known that rape happens, who rapes, and they all do nothing about it. Congress first addressed rape in 1945. Rape is nothing new to the military and they have had more then there chance do something about but again they choose to do nothing.  Why?  Why is it fine that a rape happens every two minutes in this country? Why is it fine that children are raped? Why is it acceptable that attending a college means that you are going to be raped? Why is it fine that serving your country means that you are going to be raped by a fellow service member and nothing will never happen to them?

A rape happens every two minutes. 1 in 4 women will be raped in her lifetime. 1 in 6 men will be happened in his lifetime. 26,000 women have been raped in the military and this is fine with the American society?

Rape is not part of serving your country. It is not an occupational hazard.  We are sons, daughters, fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, nephew’s, nieces, brothers, and sisters. None of us enlisted in the Armed Forces to be raped, betrayed, retaliated against, and thrown away like we were a piece of garbage. None of us asked to be raped.
