Happy Monday. It’s the 21st day of my A to Z Challenge and what a journey! For those of you who haven’t been following, I chose to focus on child abuse and sexual assault in hopes of raising awareness for my readers. After the positive feedback I received on my Quotes post, I want to start the final week off with a couple quotes from Gabrielle UNION, best known for her work in Bring It On and Being Mary Jane, who was raped at gun-point when she was 19.

 I embrace being a survivor…. Being a victim is so comfortable. It makes you lazy.
– Gabrielle Union, The Talk

Do you have any favourite quotes from survivors? Hope these have been encouraging to any and all victims/survivors out there! You are not alone.
