En las últimas horas, Christina Aguilera se animó a utilizar su cuenta de Instagram para hablar del asesinato de Vanessa Guillen y relacionarlo con su historia. Casi de forma inesperada, abrió su corazón y dio algunos detalles de la niñez que pasó llena de miedo.

“Siento orgullo por el origen militar de mi familia, desafortunadamente también he sido testigo de muchas injusticias con respecto al abuso y la violencia. Y la cultura de encubrir crímenes y hacer la vista gorda ante innumerables mujeres y sus abusadores es demasiado frecuente. He luchado con esta realidad toda mi vida: haber crecido en un hogar abusivo, rodeada de muchas mujeres que temían por sus vidas y no tenían un medio claro para escapar u obtener ayuda de forma segura para ellas y sus hijos. Siento que podría haber conocido a alguien como #VanessaGuillen”, comenzó diciendo en la publicación que lleva una foto de la joven militar. ⁣

As proud as I am of my family’s military background, I have also unfortunately witnessed much injustice regarding abuse and violence. And the culture of covering up crimes and turning a blind eye to countless women and their abusers is far too prevalent. I’ve struggled with this reality my whole life – having grown up in an abusive home, surrounded by many women who were fearful of their lives and did not have a clear means to escape or safely get help for themselves and their children. I feel as if I could have known someone like #VanessaGuillen myself. It is not easy for women to feel empowered to speak up, to feel confident that they will be supported and heard, especially in situations where they might feel outnumbered…where more often than not, the abusers will be let off just to come back more violent, threatening, and empowered the next time. More of us need to band together to give voice to these victims. We need to speak up and hold abusers and predators accountable before it happens to the next innocent person. Refuse to stay silent. I pray for changes to be made. I remember myself once living in fear and longing for better. My mother was one of the luckier ones. And so was I.I will continue to use my voice and be an advocate for victims of abuse to feel it is ok to speak up and demand to be heard. To know that you’re not alone. To know that it is not ok to be abused, harassed, or to live in fear of your life.Praying for the family of #VanessaGuillen. Praying for change within our systems. ❤️ #JusticeForVanessaGuillen

“No es fácil para las mujeres sentirse empoderadas para hablar, sentirse seguras de que serán apoyadas y escuchadas, especialmente en situaciones en las que podrían sentirse superadas en número… donde la mayoría de las veces, los abusadores serán despedidos solo por venir volver más violento, amenazante y con poder la próxima vez. Más de nosotros necesitamos unirnos para dar voz a estas víctimas. Necesitamos hablar y responsabilizar a los abusadores y depredadores antes de que le pase a la próxima persona inocente. Negarse a guardar silencio”, indicó la artista con palabras muy sentidas. ⁣

“Rezo para que se hagan cambios. Me recuerdo una vez viviendo con miedo y añorando algo mejor. Mi madre fue una de las más afortunadas. Y yo también. Seguiré usando mi voz y seré un defensor de las víctimas de abuso para que sientan que está bien hablar y exigir ser escuchado. Saber que no estás solo. Saber que no está bien ser abusado, acosado o vivir con miedo a tu vida”, finalizó Christina Aguilera su fuerte relato.
