Oh, Baby,

I hope you never get assaulted. And if you do, I hope people believe you. This is something I can’t protect you against, and I wish I could. I’m going to teach you to be strong and confident, but if something happens it’s not because you weren’t strong enough or confident enough. And if people don’t believe you, it’s not because you aren’t eloquent, it’s not because you aren’t telling the truth. It’s because sometimes people don’t believe things that feel too hard to believe. It’s hard to believe that people who are good can also do bad things. But I’ll believe you. And if for some reason I don’t, remind me that I promised to always believe you.
