It was 48 years ago. I thought I'd achieved all the understanding and had exercised forgiveness toward the perpetrators long ago, but I find that I've buried the experience under layers of self-protection that have prevented me from finding the rage that lies underneath against the boys who harmed me. And short-circuiting the pattern of having relationships with abusive husbands and of depression requires that I find the rage.
