The story below is an excerpt. And while it is hard to read, it’s important for the world to see.
“When I was a little girl in my native Belgium, I was put to work as a sex slave.
My mother sold me, and drove me wherever, whenever she got the call. The boss of this pedophile network was a Belgian cabinet minister. The clients were members of the elite. I recognized people from television. Their faces were familiar to the masses, while I was confronted with the dark side of their power addiction — the side no one would believe existed. I came across VIP’s, European heads of state, and even a member of a royal family.
Around my sixth birthday, in 1969, I was taken to an orgy for the first time, in a castle. I was used for an S&M show, on a low stage, chained up with an iron dog collar, and made to eat human feces. Afterwards, left lying there like a broken object, I felt so humiliated, I had to do something to save my soul, or else — and this I knew for certain — I would have withered and died.”1

Anneke believes that world leaders and corrupt politicians who abuse children “are themselves like children who never grew up, driven to power to avoid ever feeling the humiliation of child abuse again”2 and while we don’t know if she’s right, her drive and will to live are inspirational.
She goes on to say that those who have suffered sexual abuse, incest or even sex trafficking must “learn to harness our survival strength on our own behalf, so we can heal our damaged ego, and channel that strength to lead the way towards a future in which former victims conquer by love, understanding and compassion for all.”3
We couldn’t have said it better. We are sending Anneke all our good thoughts in the hopes that she can continue to heal and inspire others to heal, too.
