U.S. Military Grapples With A Rising Epidemic Of Sexual Assault In Its Ranks

U.S. Military Grapples With A Rising Epidemic Of Sexual Assault In Its Ranks

What is it?

Here is the description for the video above:

A video posted by a female U.S. Marine about sexual assault in the military rocketed across the internet and into a Pentagon press-briefing room Friday. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin promised to take additional steps to stop such violence. But as Nick Schifrin reports, sexual assault in the military continues to rise and individual families continue to be ripped apart.

A Superpower Competition | A Store Fight | Sexual Assault In The Military

Nap Dream

I took a brief nap during an episode of an anime on Toonami when I had this dream.

All that I can remember is being inside a multi-purpose building that was school-like, I remember walking through some hallways, and there was something about a competition to see who would win among those with superpowers.

A House & A JobbyTheHong Skit & Sexual Assault | Snoop Dogg & Zelda Rubinstein

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that most of my family and I had moved to a fictional house/building that seemed to be in an area that reminded me of the shopping center by W Park in the city of D, it was day, but it seemed that we had been living in this house/building for days/weeks/maybe months.

The house was possibly connected to the shopping center, at least the outer walkway, and I remember being inside the house talking with my parents.

A Woman Using Her Powers To Hide Her Brother(s)?

Dream 1

All that my notes of this dream says is that the dream involved a woman, I was trying to sleep in the dream when I thought about something that the woman happened to be thinking about / had thought about, and when I told the woman this she assumed that I had only dreamed this.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This dream took place during the day and I was driving in a car with my brothers, and at the end of the dream we were driving back home (maybe we had went out of town earlier, but I can not remember).

I remember us driving up the street that our uncle WC lives on, but I woke up.

Dream 3

This dream was probably inspired by me watching an episode of the television show Channel Zero: The Dream Door before I went to sleep and I was probably not even in this dream but I can not remember, and this dream involved a woman who somewhat reminded me of the character Jillian Hope Hodgson from the show.

In this dream the woman had some kind of special power / superpower (ability) that allowed her to somewhat manipulate the real world or something in ways that I can not remember, she had one or more brothers in the dream, and one or more of them and / or some of their friends possibly sexually assaulted and / or raped and / or harassed a woman.

The woman then used her powers to somehow hide / cloak her brother(s) and the others if there were any, and every so often I saw a darkness / shadow and you could briefly see them.

Somehow she was concealing their presence and / or hiding them in another dimension, and she was possibly even causing people to forget about them or what they had done but I am not sure.

I do know that she could not keep this up forever and she started questioning whether she should just turn him or them in to face justice for what they did, but I woke up.

The end,

Trying To Stop A Gang Rape At An Outdoor Cinema

I did not get much sleep last night and most of my memories of the dreams that I did have slipped from my mind except for part of the end of my next to last dream.

This dream took place during maybe late afternoon or early evening, I am not sure if I rode with someone else or how I got there, but I ended up out in the countryside in the wilderness (forest) in a clearing where there was a small area where a film was going to be shown so it was probably an outdoor cinema.

The area where the screen was or where the film would be projected was on the ground and it was not that big, and it was possibly under a slightly covered area that probably had concrete.

Slowly people were arriving and were standing around talking as they waited for the movie to start, there were mostly men there but there were some women there as well, and among the small crowd I saw the actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and I possibly talked with him briefly and / or I somewhat knew him somehow like we had met before but I can not remember.

After that I remember seeing and talking with my former male classmate JC, I remember him noticing Mr. Schwarzenegger in the crowd and he asked me if that was really him, and I remember telling my former classmate JC that it was really him and I told him something about Mr. Schwarzenegger that I can not remember that I somehow knew from either being told by him directly and / or I heard it from someone else.

At some point as we talked it was almost time to start watching the movie so everyone started to slowly move to where they wanted to sit, I remember several women sitting on the concrete floor in front of the screen, and slowly some groups of rough-looking men started moving in behind them.

The mood and atmosphere of the dream changed suddenly and dramatically, I felt and sensed negativity and danger and ill-will et cetera coming from the groups of men moving in behind the women who had sat in the front (not all the women sat there, only some did), and I noticed that their facial expressions and body language had changed and seemed very rapey and I feared for the safety of all the women who were there.

The men started smile and laugh and to make sounds and probably said some inappropriate things to the women as they moved in behind them closely, the women had their backs to the men and they looked happy and ready for the movie so they had no idea of the danger moving in behind them, and the men got so close to the women that they were touching them.

I told my former classmate JC that I felt that something bad was going to happen and that I was going to start moving in to stop it if necessary, and so he started to move forward with me to join me in defending the women if necessary.

The men started touching the women and groping the women, the women told them to stop and started trying to resist, but the men did not care as more and more men moved in on them so they were completely surrounded and there were several rows of men around them so they had nowhere to go.

I was too busy moving forward to help the women in the front so I am not sure if the rest of the women behind me were being attacked or not as well, I do not remember seeing Mr. Schwarzenegger at this point but he was possibly further behind me, but who knows.

I felt that these men were going to rape the women, it seemed that most of the men there were joining in, and so maybe only my former classmate JC and me were going to try to stop them so we were greatly outnumbered and there were too many women for us to protect at the same time so the situation was very bad.

I remember telling the men to leave them alone but they paid no attention to me so I started pushing and pulling men out-of-the-way trying to reach the women through the rows of men blocking my path, and there were so many men in the way trying to attack the women that I could no longer see the women but I heard them screaming and yelling get off me and don’t touch me et cetera like they were trying to resist the attack.

The situation was very bad and I started trying to reach them as quickly as I could as I fought my way through the crowd of men.

It reminded me of a scene from the film Inception when the character Ariadne started to get grabbed by the projections (dream characters) of the character Dom Cobb as Cobb tried to stop them:

The situation was a worst case scenario now, there were so many men in the way that we would not be able to reach all of the women in time, and even if we could it was not likely that we could fight all of the men and protect all of the women and even if we could I probably did not have an automobile so I would not be able to get the women to safety and my former classmate JC had an automobile but all of us would not be able to fit inside of it and we were out in the countryside so help would not arrive in time.

I woke up before I could reach any of the women in the front.
