I took these back in June while I was strolling along at Montrose Harbor in Chicago.  It seemed like there were tons of red winged blackbirds  everywhere.

So many survivors of sex crimes who come forward sharing their stories of being abused as children and or as adult are now being bullied by those who want them to maintain their silence.  It's time to put an end to this type of  bullying on and off the internet.  This video was created in hopes of helping those being targeted will realize they are not alone and that they can heal from these types of crimes.
