Letter to the First Presidency

Updated: Jun 3


Becoming the Hero, Written Series*

In which I find the voice of pain that yearned to be listened to, and plead with the leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to enact changes that will protect victims of violence and prevent instances of violence in the future.

*Please note that this was an incredibly emotional letter to write. I had to reopen many wounds and as such, missed a lot of minor grammatical and spelling errors. I read through it multiple times before sending, but by the time I finished writing it I had very little energy left. It hurt too bad to continue to read it over and over. Rather than editing it and posting a cleaned up version I am choosing to post the actual letter. I have hidden all names and personal information. While this was not intended to be a blog post, I have included it in my written series because this is a monumental milestone in my journey to reclaim my life and become the hero.
