The request is for help raising awareness about the carnival throughout the blogosphere and through that effort raising awareness that many of us are serious about wanting sexual violence to end and that in no way are we a tiny minority out of touch with the mainstream.
Read my call to help get the word out about the carnival at the Carnival Against Sexual Violence home page. If each of us takes at least one tiny action that helps in this fight, together we can take great actions.
Because of all of the emotional triggers and issues related to this subject many of us who have been victims of sexual violence remain silent and I respect the reasons behind that silence. Self care is as important as caring for others.
If you can't speak of your pain, you can speak through something as simple as making the the carnival against sexual violence one of your Technorati favorites. And with the number of bloggers who are also survivors, we can show our numbers in very simple ways.
In a comment on another post of mine someone said that personal experience counts for nothing, but that man was wrong. Our experiences count and they are not to be dismissed as if they and we are meaningless.
