I almost didn't post it because - hell, crowding into a VW bug out in the parking lot in a silly little school stunt DOES NOT EVEN BEGIN TO COMPARE with the extreme trauma that Dr. Ford and rape victims and assault victims - AND abuse victims have endured. So curious now, all these years later, to realize that as relatively insignificant an experience mine was by comparison, it helped me "get" what they feel, how they feel - and THAT they feel. What it DID do is allow me to understand THEIR trauma, even from a microscopic level, and not just sympathize but empathize. It gave me a tiny window to see into their pain. Mine was an anthill. Theirs is Olympus Mons.
