25 Years Ago

25 years ago, I was a junior high school student. I usually went home using a bus from my school. That day I sat beside an open window and the bus passed a group of boys (also junior high school student, wearing their uniforms). Due to traffic, the bus stopped in front of these boys. One of the boys came to my window, lengthened his hand and grasped my breast. I was just shocked, doing nothing and the bus continued the ride. I still remember until now the feeling of embarrassment, helplessness and powerlessness. I want more people to be aware and willing to help if this kind of harassment happens in public areas.
