Choosing NOT to act is putting your nieces in harm's way...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I understand your fears, but you absolutely MUST tell someone. Sex offenders do not change their ways unless and until someone steps up and discloses so that they can be stopped! My god, you and your sister have the power to prevent your precious innocent helpless nieces, yet you are both choosing to ignore the very real danger they are in. You DON'T have until she is 4...and to wait until the age of 7 to actually ask if she's been abused...you're thinking is very mixed up. They have likely already been molested. Act NOW in order to spare them what you, and so many others, have been through. Spare your neices more of what they've likely already been through. Please, get yourself some help. Talk to a counsellor about what the abuse has done to you and your ability to think clearly. When you find out that your nieces HAVE been sexually assaulted by their fathers, you will have to live with the knowledge that you could have prevented it, but chose—yes, CHOSE—not to. How will you tell your little nieces that Aunty knew but wouldn't do anything to stop it? By not reporting what your brothers did to you and others, you and your sister are enabling more sexual abuse. Please, think about that. Make what happened to you mean something: TELL! Telling may well help you not be such an emotional wreck. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

If I was abused then My first instict (is) should be to safeguard others
by: maurice

Emotional Wreck that you will stay if you with the help of your sister don't tell on your brothers and what they did to you both. They abused you both. they knew what they were doing. don't you fool yoursefl for one minute that they were ignorant you are fooling yourself. Darlene has given you very forceful words of reality for you and your sister to make sense of. Maybe you want your niece to go through what you went though. I am certain you don't so get off your bottom and get real and trusting of yourself firstly, then then next closest one to you that you can trust. who may not neccessary be your boyfriend. he is could be only a passing trust fot the moment. so get a FRIEND outside of him maybe in your family. with yourself and your sister you both are old enough and big enough to make your niece safe from child abusers and molesters. I can, I will, I must their are innocent children little girls out there that my brothers could ruin if I don't speak up. speak to a counsellor about it, then you will be getting help for yourself and your sister. Healing for you both begins today only iof you really heed what darlene wrote to you. let darlene and her visitors know if you cared enough to tell someone.

its okay...
by: christina

you know, i do understand where you are coming from, but you do have to tell someone, and if you dont, it will eat you up inside, and eventually make you a person that you dont want to be, i am 23 and it has been nearly 15 years since my child abuse, but i still to this day, am so angry, i have a bad bad temper, i am scared that every man i see in the mall, public, any where i work, anywhere i shop, the men in church----everybody, is a child molester....it will eat you up hun if you dont tell anyone, but do it when you are ready, you dont need to be forced to do anything else anymore, the time will come, and you will know, and when it does you will feel free.....
