  1. Nice work, C.K. Really, mighty fine work.

    And, from my entire self, I thank you.

  2. Hey CK,

    Nice to Meet Me was a huge help to me in my recovery when I read it and I can never thank you enough. Your courage to write about your experiences in such a raw and personal way is a huge inspiration to me and everyone else that suffers from CSA in their past. Thanks again bro and I am looking forward to reading your new books over the Christmas break.

  3. Good on you MAN. You are an inspiration to people who barely know you!!

  4. Excellent writing, CK. While I find the term “real man” has become meaningless as we all use it to mean different things, thank you for showing what brave manhood truly is. As a member of PROTECT: The National Association to Protect Children, I appreciate you standing up to tell other men that childhood abuse does nothing to unmake us as men.

    I am a woman who has been sexually abused and I can totally empathize and relate. About 3 months ago I was suicidal and didn’t know why. I hadn’t labeled what had happened to me as sexual abuse/rape. I was in ALOT of pain. I started blogging about it because I didn’t have the courage to talk to a therapist. Thank you for writing. I do not feel so alone now.

  6. I am sorry that you had to go through that, and all that came after. But I’d guess that the end result was the real prize for your path this time around. Think about what “you” might have been without this. Excellent article ck about what it really means to be a man. A manly man at that. And even more importantly, a
    hu-man. Thank you for sharing.

    Beautiful CK. A s a fellow survivor of childhood sexual abuse, and a man who has had to walk the path of shame back into the light, I salute you for your courage and your goodness.

  8. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us
    something enlightening to read?
