Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has shown Americans what true patriotism looks like.
She put her life on hold, faced her fear of flying and shared the traumatizing details of her assault.
"Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes. He had a hard time because he was so drunk, and because I was wearing a one-piece bathing suit under my clothes. I believed he was going to rape me. I tried to yell for help. When I did, Brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from screaming. This was what terrified me the most, and has had the most lasting impact on my life. It was hard for me to breathe, and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me." - Dr. Ford
I urge you to watch the footage of her testimony. She is a role model to survivors of sexual assault in Amerca and all over the world. If you are a survivor of sexual assault, your experience is valid.
I believe you, Dr. Ford, and here are 30 other tweets from folks that support you too:
