This was a story recently done by a local news station.  While I found it really disturbing, I do appreciate the predator's brutal honest.  This made my stomach do flip flops the whole time reading.  I encourage everyone to read this.

I was never sexual abused but know many who were (including my sisters and mother).  They were all abused by family members.  I just always remember my mother telling me to trust my instinct, say NO! when I felt uncomfortable, and tell anyone that I trusted if it did happen so she could protect me.  I firmly believe this saved me.  I recall being about 10 years old when a cousin tried to isolate me and take advantage but my stomach felt sick when he tried.  A few minutes later, my sister came over and grabbed my hand, shot a dirty look to the potential abuser and took me to her bedroom.  I found out years later,this cousin was the monster that stole my sister's innocence and several other young girls in my family.  I was spared.  And this beast has yet to be convicted.

Would you talk to your kids about this?  What did you take away from this story?

 It's a long read, but totally worth it!  Bumping to make sure all who want to see it get the chance

I think that made me feel sick to my stomach but it is an interesting thing to read. It's disturbing that it is almost always a family member or friend, or another trusted person. This is why I'm unbelievably selective about who I leave my children with. Have you ever heard of the Lisa Project?

I see it as there are different levels of bad when it comes to sex offenders. I dont think someone who commited statutory rape should be treated the same as a person who molests a ten year old.

 I haven't heard about this but I will check it out.  Is it an awareness program?

 I agree with you about that.  I wish there was a seperate list they titled, "I made a bad choce and had sex with a 15 year old when I was 18" or "She lied about her age" registry.
