I am so sorry this happened, what a horrible memory to carry around. Know what makes this number even more horrifying? Only 19% of all sexual crimes are committed by a stranger. The rest are people the victim knew. 4 million sex trafficking victims is less than 1/5 of all the sexual crimes occurring. And that’s in the USA. Many developing countries are worse. Far worse. Thank you for writing this.
