This is a fun event which has gained a major following around the world. This event, however, is about bringing public awareness to crimes often hiding in the darkest shadows. Only when we bring these issues to the light will we finally put an end to what is so often ugly. No victim of violence should ever feel alone, no victim should ever feel shame, no victim should ever feel, small.
Every step taken today is symbolic of one step forward down the path to ending gender violence forever. I want to thank Cornerstone, its staff, and all those participating today. Each of you are making that difference.
