There was a girl that was killed this month in my hometown….it’s been all over the news. The boy who did it was only 17-years-old. After I found out a few weeks ago I sat in my room and cried for a long time while I read articles and looked at pics of her. Her mom reminds me of my sister, not well kept and obese but total and unconditional love for her child. The tragedy brought a lot of uneasy emotions up. I keep picturing my brother who was raped by my step-father and me and my sister who were tortured by out my brothers father, our first step-father.
I did some looking into reporting the man who sexually abused my little brother, there is noting I can do. This is not the first time I have looked into this matter, I thought I might have found something different but I didn’t. I contemplated calling his job, he is a paramedic… I wont. Unless my brother, who is almost 21 reports it nothing can be done. I have thought about telling my mother but again my brother will probably deny anything ever happened so I it would only make things worse.
My brother is not in a healthy spot in his life right now. God Help Him!
