Two weeks ago in Monticello, my life changed forever

On Sunday August 9, JCW held an evening of education and awareness surrounding child sexual abuse. This was the 10th such event of the year with each previous event drawing massive crowds (over 3300 people in total). For whatever reason, only a small handful of people showed up for the event in Monticello.

It was obviously discouraging to see this large Shul virtually empty after so much time and effort, but yesterday, we received this amazing poem from one of the people in attendance which put everything into prospective.

Maybe by Hashgacha Pratis (Divine Providence) the crowd had to be small for this brave survivor to have the experience she had…

There was a moment in time,
A place where I felt high.
It was up in the mountains,
On a summer weekend.
It was a miracle waiting to happen,
A blessing straight from heaven.
I’ve waited many years for this,
I hoped that one day my life will be full of bliss.
It could only happen like this:

My life changed forever at the JCW event in Monticello, NY two weeks ago.
We were a small crowd of people in a large synagogue hall.
Meyer spoke first, I cried through it all.
Then the officer got up to speak, after which he opened the floor for questions.

My soul was aflame,
My heart in a rage.
I had something to say.

The Rabbi got up to speak.
Then Mordy.
I was inspired.

The final speaker,
My heart skipped a beat.
He opened the floor for questions,
I leaped on my feet.
I had a voice,
I made a choice.
I broke my silence.

The after effects were:
I felt free,
I felt me.
I felt light,
I no longer carried around a dreadful plight.
I could dream,
My face could gleam.

I returned a lot.
I gave away shame,
I gave away blame.
I gave away hurt,
I gave away a curse.
I let go of anger,
I let go of rage.

I got back peace and brave.

Thank you JCW
