Women Soldiers Raped

I can't speak on this story right now. I've been hearing more about it lately and I'm glad. It's just too much. Yet I have to share the link. I'm wishing her family peace.

That there's even an implication that a woman would genitally mutilate herself before committing suicide in the middle of a deployment -- that this is their story so that they don't have to investigate? That the case is closed? I'm just horrified. Here's the link:

I want this public record. I will write to politicians, whatever good that will do. I just want someone to testify for this woman -- and she's not the only one.
