From Trisha Meili, A Woman of Valor: Spiritual Wisdom Without Anger or Resentment

I pass this on in admiration of the spirit of this being …

In April of 1989, a young woman was brutally assaulted and raped while jogging in New York’s Central Park. The attack captured headlines around the world as the anonymous “Central Park Jogger” fought to recover from massive injuries that left her near death. Fourteen years later, in a first person account, Trisha Meili broke her silence in the best-seller I am the Central Park Jogger: A Story of Hope and Possibility.

The horror of her attack brought an outpouring of support and love from her family, friends, healthcare workers, co-workers, and strangers.Today Trisha is one of the most sought out inspirational speakers on the lecture circuit. Audiences enjoy Trisha’s energy, wit, and poignant stories about the power of the human spirit.Through her work, book, and lectures, she reaches out to people struggling through recovery from any number of problems, offering Hope and PossibilityTM.

She said she had wrestled with the decision for years about whether to come forward with her story, wondering: “Do I want to become more public? Do I want to share my story and try to give other people the sense that ‘yes, it is possible that we can come back from whatever our circumstances are?’ Or was it that I want people to know me not as the label of the Central Park Jogger, someone who has a head injury, and someone who’s been raped.

“And for a long time, that was very, very important to me. But over the last few years, I thought, you know what, I think it’s more important to get this message out there that, ‘Yes, we can come back,’ and that I’m an example, I think, of how much the love and support of others helps and how much it makes a difference.”

Meili, who has no memory of the attack, said she went through years of psychotherapy after the assault and it made “me reflect on my whole life.”

“I had issues. I was a compulsive runner. I had an eating disorder. And I needed to look at that … how to get peace with that in a way, and how to deal with not being the same person that I was before the attack, and come to some peace that that’s OK — that different doesn’t mean worse.”

Of the attack, she said, “I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. It’s not my fault. But I took responsibility for my own healing.”
