Healing random violence

Posted on Wed, Feb 20, 2013 at 4:07 PM

To the woman who was raped on Agricola Street on February 14, 2012: Ever since I heard about what happened to you, I have been thinking about you, every minute of every day. I want you to know that you are not alone in your grief, your sadness and your anger. My heart is broken for you. I offer you some random love to help you heal from this random violence: I am a professional massage therapist, my office is right across the street from where you were attacked. If you would let me, I would like to give you some massage treatments, for free. If you don’t want to return to that location, I will bring my massage table to you. This is a long term offering for love and support. Contact me if and when you are ready. —marshmassage@yahoo.ca
