Sorry, to read and hear the story shed; however I really understand the sleepless nights. I also know individuals personally who have sexual intercourse with their father and still communicate with him as a family. I know God told us to forgive, but I still have to ask why do they fine it necessary to play the role. True, children are innocent and once things like this happens it can't erase the pain and other unacceptable emotions that they don't know how and what to do but feel dirt,...

I also know individuals personally who have sexual intercourse with their father and still communicate with him as a family. I know God told us to forgive, but I still have to ask why do they fine it necessary to play the role. True, children are innocent and once things like this happens it can't erase the pain and other unacceptable emotions that they don't know how and what to do but feel dirt, guilty or some other unfortunate feelings and thoughts. I pray for you all and hope that we can make a change not only in one city but everywhere.

Who rapes an innocent child, ESPECIALLY their OWN? Sickening. Melanie, I will gladly sign your petition, but would be more than happy to know where your dad and uncle hang these days... You'll get a 2-for-2 deal here!

I am a survivor of childhood sexual and physical abuse and I can say whithout a doubt that MOST children DO NOT TELL! Its not until we are much much older that we begin to see that it isn't our fault! Abuse of any kind can NOT be tolerated.

May I ask when did you actually have the courage to tell someone you were abused, and how old were you, did something happen to trigger the memories or were they always at the back of your mind??

I know EXACTLY how you feel Leah,I am 51 yrs old and have never told anyone that I was sexually abused as a child/teen, even after all these yrs I am to embarassed to say anything, but I know it has affected me emotionally/physically everyday, so don't feel alone, we are probably 2 out of thousands of now adults who have never spoke up, I wish you all the best!!

Every child deserves to be protected from sexual abuse. It starts now to protect and secure an end to this horrific crime against children.
