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?
