"I know exactly what happened. But can you speak those sentences to the people you love? That question continues to haunt me. After telling the hard facts to anyone from lover to friend, I have changed in their eyes. Often it is awe or admiration, sometimes it is repulsion, once or twice it has been fury hurled directly at me for reasons I remain unsure of. [...] No one call pull you back from anywhere. You save yourself or you remain unsaved." -Alice Sebold, author of Lucky.
