Her punches and scratches didn’t stop him. By the time police arrived, she was already victimized and crying uncontrollably.
She wasn’t in one of those dark alleys or seedy bars they always warn women to stay away from. No, she was at an Oklahoma City downtown hotel. In the ladies room. And so was he.
I’m sure it’s small comfort that her rapist has been arrested. I’m sure she wishes that it had never happened. Her life is changed forever.
I’ve got years of classical vocal training and quite the set of lungs. My scream is ear-splitting. Ask anyone that has ridden a roller coaster with me. But I choose to arm myself with something more.
Attackers will not listen to your pleas and cries for help, but hot lead is a universal language. You are the only one that will be there to come to your defense. You are on your own.
