Wow, so many of us experience rape. I too was raped. But, now, almost 20 years later, I am still alive living a full wonderful life. I have a wonderful husband, and three absolutely wonderful children. My life is, for the most part, very good.
As much as it takes to get over being violated in such an act as rape, if he had murdered me, it would be over. I’d have no life 20 years later. I’d have no children to make me happy and love me.
While I’d never choose to experience any of the above, if I had to choose between being raped or murdered…I can always go home to my husband and cry.
As far as you know “knowing the difference” if you were murdered…what about the people you left behind. You can get over a rape…and they still have you to help you get over it. But if you are gone, how many people will no longer have a mother/father, daughter/son, sister/brother. Yes rape is one of the most horrific things a person can live through…BUT you do live through it!!!
I guarantee if any of you were honestly in a situation that you had a freak giving you the choice…there is not one person that would actually say they wanted to die rather than live through a rape.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!!! JMO!
