    thanks, I’mNotObsessed and TST.

    my best friend Haley was raped last year by her drunk boyfriend. even hearing Haley’s memories was excruciating, and i can only imagine the pain she went through. it’s been a year, but i know that it still really affects Haley and she has trust issues. Kristen and the whole team did a wonderful job making this. now everyone’s hearts can reach out to Haley, and these girls on the video, and all the thousands of rape victims in the world. this is for you, Haley.
