You have FABULOUS parents. And you so did the right thing. I commend and applaud you for telling. It was a terrifying time for you, yet you still told. And yes, I can understand looking back and thinking 'I should have taken a paper route instead', but that's not helpful thinking. Those thoughts only serve to keep you vibrating at a frequency that is not healthy. You can't change what happened, much as you would like to. What you can do is change how you think about what happened to you. Give yourself the credit you deserve for telling. Look at things from a different perspective. What happened to you and the way you dealt with things, as well as the way your parents dealt with it all, has been helpful in keeping your little brother safe. And now you can help others who have endured something similar because you understand how easily it can happen. Maybe not right now as you heal. But certainly in the future. Really and truly, Marshall, you are an inspiration. Always remember that. Just so you know, I had to edit some of your content in order to fit into my template. But not at the expense of the integrity of your story. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

You are to be commended.
by: Linda

Marshall, I have so much respect for you for being brave enough to tell your parents, what your uncle did to you. Parents like yours are a rare thing these days. You saved your brother from that, Pedifile, by sending him to jail. I will pray for you and I hope God Blesses you with a long and happy life.

The world needs more parents like yours
by: Anonymous

Maxwell, as much as I'm glad that you told, hats off to your parents for doing the right thing because they're heroes; I just hope your sick pig of an uncle remains incarcerated for those disgusting crimes that he committed against you.

It's not your fault and having the best parents on earth does not make you immune from your feelings. I wish I had parents like yours who don't turn the other way and pretend nothing happened. I'm sorry about your feelings when you pass small stores. I read that Ashley Judd had a similar experience in a small shop and her mother did nothing about it. I pray you can thrive as it sounds like you are just surviving. To be betrayed by your uncle like that is a horrible thing. I'm so sorry for you. I'm so happy you have loving parents but obviously that's not taking the pain away.
