As A Mother & Survivor, I’m Having “Big Feelings” About Michelle Obama’s Speech

I can’t tell her I’m so full of rage and hurt I cannot bear to let it out. I can’t tell her that when I was twice her age, a man thought he could do whatever he wanted, and he raped me. I can’t tell her that to explain what one of the candidates for president is saying, I have to explain what “rape” is, and why I care so deeply about it. I can’t tell her I’m full of dread that the world she is entering will permit him not only to assault her, but also give him power over our entire country.
