This man’s name is Scott (and no, he isn’t me).
Scott has a secret he’s been carrying for decades. It’s nearly killed him multiple times.
Click the link, watch the video. It’s nine minutes long. Watch the whole thing, even though you don’t want to. Watch how he doesn’t speak, watch how his facial expression never changes–but his hands start to shake as he holds up the cards.
Scott is a survivor, and a hero.
If you have a secret like Scott’s, let me add my voice to his: don’t keep it a secret any longer. Tell a parent, a friend, a trusted teacher or clergyman, a counselor. Tell somebody.
Keeping your secret only helps an abusive coward give more people secrets to carry.
