I had the honor of having Tommy Williams on my show. I can't tell Tommy's story for him, so I am posting his message so that you know and remember who Tommy is. He's an inspiration and I hope his story impacts the world.

Tommy's Message: My name is Tommy. I am 14 years old. I am also a survivor of child-on-child rape, incest, and sexual assault. My perpetrator was my 13 year old half-brother. I was 8 years old when it all started and almost 10 when I disclosed. I started speaking publicly when I was 13. I want other kids to know it is not their fault!

No matter what your abuser tells you, someone will listen. You are not alone! I told another kid at play practice. He told adults. Tell everyone...principals, counselors, teachers, lunch ladies, neighbors, friends, parents of friends, or any adult. Someone will listen.
