"After 20 years of doing trauma work, it still amazes me how survivors of sexual abuse manage to cup that little flicker of self against the fierce winds of abuse. The people I've met for the Soaring Project not only kept that flame alive, they glow. Through a lot of hard work, they've transformed soul-wrenching pain into wisdom and strength. It's been a privilege to meet such brave and spirited people. They've helped me turn my focus from the shadows to the light."
