Danielle, this piece spoke to me directly. As a survivor that is open about traumas I understand the hesitation that comes with sharing those experiences with a community. I am proud of you for making the decision to keep on writing for your community. Your experiences are worth sharing, no matter how big or small, all trauma matters. Your trauma matters.
