Just finished watching the documentary "Leaving Neverland". I'm out of words.
The courage it takes for these men and their families to tell their truth is just awe-inspiring. I know they already have and will continue to receive a lot of hate for the things they have said and claimed about their own experiences with Michael Jackson. As for me, my heart goes out in love and respect to Wade and James, and it is my prayer and hearts desire that these men will one day be able to forgive themselves and their mothers for everything they have gone through. Everything they are still working through.
It could be a never ending discussion trying to talk about what actually happened although I do have a pretty clear view of what I believe, but the purpose of this blog post is not to talk about Michael. Instead I came on here to share the importance of the stories of these victims.
I respect Wade Robson and James Safechurch for their courage and strength in telling their stories. I praise them for daring to take this, perhaps the most important, step on their respective roads to recovery and healing. I am confident that this documentary will open up for important conversations all over the world, but perhaps more importantly I feel that this documentary gives more people the opportunity to do something even greater, which is: to listen. And through listening, allowing each person to own their own truth.
