My Thesis on the Unquantifiable Nature of Time

My Theses as to the Unquantifiable Nature of Time and the Healing Process after rape.

1. I do it now because there are no irrefutable laws of time.
2. I do it now because I believe in the power of truth, ownership of wrongdoing, dignity of confession, mercy of forgiveness, appeasement through reparation that serves toward the healing of a broken humanity
3. I do it now because I was not able to before.
4. I do it now because I choose to do it now, and it is my right to choose.
5. I do it now because time brings change and now I can feel empowered to disclose what shamed me into silence for years before.
6. I do it now because I speak for a million other women who have remained silent with their shame often for lifetimes. 
7. I do it now for my mother and grandmothers that came before me, my daughter and the daughters that come after me, for my sons, their sons and the ones that shall be born in generations to come.
8. I do it now because this is a moment in time where radical change for the greater good becomes possible and we are called to rise to it, to seize the moment, fearlessly.
10. I do it now because men in power have sexually abused and violated for too long setting toxic examples for our youth.
11. I do it now because I am not alone like I was when the rape happened.
12. I do it now because my family is standing by me.
13. I do it now because I am in the embrace of sisters who have also been violated.
14. I do it now because I am surrounded and supported by a vast community of those who have spent their lives struggling for justice, equality and a world free of exploitation and abuse of any form.
15. I do it now because I have voice and privilege that grants me the platform to speak out for the thousands of women and children and even men who have suffered the humiliation of rape who do not.
16. I do it now because it will make others brave to come out and speak their truth and thus challenge the oppressive culture of sexual abuse and violence in our world.
17. I do it now because I believe in the power of the ordinary woman and man to make a difference when they speak out with integrity and courage.
18. I do it now because I speak with the voice everywoman, having neither worldly accumulation of wealth nor power that could silence me.
19. I do it now because my heart will not allow me to do otherwise.
20. I do it now because I know as I am released and healed, so I heal the world around me.
21. I do it now within the loving arms of the ever-loving Creator Mother Father God, the power that is greater than us that which is our Shield, our Sword, our Comforter, our Guide, our Inspiration, our Song.
22.I do it now because the world is crying out more than ever for our collective courageous engagement and activism.
23.I do it now because of and with you.
24.I do it now because now... Now is the time.
