ANONYMOUS QUOTES FROM THOSE WHO HAVE VIEWED THE CLOTHESLINE PROJECT :
"[This display] helps me realize that this is real. I never knew it happened this much. It is such a horrible thing. My heart goes out to all of them."
"This project is about hope and the part we can play in providing that hope. Hope provides strength. Strength provides healing."
"Abuse is big - sexual, physical, verbal - it's all going on, hurting and ruining so many lives. We need to be aware and must stop this."
"I didn't think stuff like this happened in Utah."
"It takes a lot of courage for these people to do this; I hope the best for them and am sorry for what they have had to deal with."
"I go almost every year and my heart grows bigger each time."
"It is a wonderful way to "tell" someone what has happened to you and finally get it off their chest. So many of the shirts confess that this is the first time they're sharing their story."
"The Clothesline Project was very revealing to the extreme violence that surrounds us and that we are not even aware of. The t-shirts reveal true feelings and it is great that there is no censoring because this helps the victims express what they really feel."
