I carry with me an enormous amount of guilt every single day of my life, thinking to myself that if I had only spoken up and asked a question or said something to my parents at the time, so many of these beautiful souls who have spoken in this very room over the past week would not have been subjected to this pain through Larry’s abuse of their bodies.
