He was probably 14 or 15 years of age and I was 10 years (or perhaps a bit younger). Praise the Lord, my mother could tell something was wrong with me the next day and I told her what happened. The abuser left me alone after his initial attempt and my parents kept me away from him. I don't even know where he is now or if he's still alive. The reason I'm telling of my experience is to point out that this really is a serious sexual sin and the victims need protection and justice. We need to warn our children about sexual sins and protect them; don't sweep it under the rug and then sign them up for a reality TV show.
Dear Angela, You are not alone. I too was the victim of several males in my family. I told no one, I felt guilty and unclean. Only the Lord can heal...but it sure is good to speak out against this deviancy and not pretend it doesn't happen. Many of us are the walking wounded because of perverts
