My group of friends together at last

Hello Kitty Tissue Box from Amazon

I just reviewed Speak which is a book about rape. I read it after my friend Naomi told me she'd been raped, because I want to understand how she feels as well as I possibly can. Touching a woman against her will is never ever right and it's surprising how easily people judge. They don't think it's a big deal or she must have provoked it somehow because she's pretty and so on. It hurts me to hear that and I hope nobody will ever be mean to my friend like that again. It's worse enough already that she had to go through the assault itself. I don't understand those people and honestly I want to hit them. Naomi is shy and silent now, she's so serious and withdrawn. I know some of it will pass, but she will never be the same as she was before. 
Fortunately Lizzy managed to make things right again, so we could be complete for the first time in a long while. I love my group of friends and we've underlined once more that no man should ever come between us. We all had a sleepover at Naomi's childhood home. She's still living with her parents and she feels a lot better when she isn't alone at night. We've all taken turns to stay with her over the past couple of weeks, but this time it wasn't only for support, we also had a bit of fun. I hope that's the first step to healing again for Naomi.
