Denise Lohnn Posted 3 months ago Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame Monica, I am so happy for you, and so glad you are back in the public eye with such a powerful message for everyone. My daughter was only three when everything exploded for you, and I cried thinking how you and your family must have been suffering. I never understood how anyone could find joy in another's misfortune. I cried again listening to your eloquent speech. At the time, I was going through my own situation where my husband made horrible decisions and our neighbors judged me. I had nothing to do with what he did, and yet I could not even leave my home without being harassed. As my daughter turned seven, she was bullied by the neighborhood children over something her father did four years prior. Realtors showed up at my home, becuase neighbors called them. The cruelty was abhorrent. It was simply excruciating, but I told my daughter that we must always walk with our heads held high, because we were never going to be victims of other's sub-treatment of us. I volunteered and taught at the school she was in, and I showed everyone that we would not back down. We educated with compassion, and despite some people who would never be accepting, we made it through to the other side just as you have. I wish you love, blessings and only good fortune and health in this life, because you truly deserve it. You have proven yourself a success and are now showing others that life can be good again. God bless your family for being your emotional rock when you needed them. I'm so sorry for the despicable way you were treated by all parties involved back in those dark days and may you continue on your path of inspiration to others.
