I won't be "Nuts" for you!

The following clip is  from the film "Nuts", which starred Barbara Streisand.

It's important to remember that, one out of every 3-5 women and one out of every 5-7 men have been sexually abuse by the time they turned 18.

For those of you who don't remember the movie, it came out in 1987 and is about incest. The Awareness Center strongly suggests that everyone who cares to help those who have been sexually abused as children to go to your local video store and rent it. 

We are sure that many incest survivors and others who were sexually violated as children will be able to relate and may find it empowering to watch, to see for themselves that they are not alone, that others have felt exactly the same and they have a right NOT to be "Nuts". The insanity belongs only to those who perpetrate crimes against children (and adults) and those who are actively involve in covering up these types of criminal behaviors.

WARNING: this clip could be triggering to some. So if you want to watch, please do so during the day when you can access your support people if you feel the need to do so.
