Here are some of the submissions we got for the "It Happened Here" Feature. Some of these have been changed to remove identifying features. We also had some courageous and touching stories shared at the Open Mic.
Each Voice that speaks out, makes other victims feel less alone, and less to blame. Each voice makes it easier for others to break the silence. Rape Culture can only exist when we look away and don't see it for what it is. Thanks to all these courageous voices for starting the process.
Here are Some Poems that speak the truth about Rape Culture:
by Paul Goodspeed
It begins with background chatter crackling like a comfortable fire on a cold night
And home-baked bread that tastes like hospitality, sweeter than hand-harvested honey
Then she steps up to the mic and reels us in, collecting the scatter and quelling the chatter
And despite quirky quips called out with a smile, the program commences
With each song I float away on angelic acoustic music
Each lyric carefully carved with exquisite care
Each song its own path to profundity
On Interrogating the Statues of Dead Men
Open Mic Night tonight at 8PM in LLC Classroom
Please enjoy a selection of photos taken by me during the 2016 Summer Vacation. In this album, I traveled from to Longbeach Key, Florida to the great waters of Niagara Falls to Corning, New York, home of the greatest Glass Museum. These pictures are a selection of the many photos I took on my journey. I specialize in color photography, which can be seen throughout this album and many others that I have.
Pictures from Robert Frost's Home in Franconia, where he lived from 1915-1920.
