Andy, I LOVE your comment about them being witches.

Bryan, I would hope that you might take solace in the fact not only had you prevented your nephew from being perped.........you raised awareness about sexual abuse within your ENTIRE FAMILY. They can no longer of this mindset of "Oh, sexual abuse happens, but only in OTHER people's families, not ours." Your actions may well have saved your nieces from a lifetime of pain as well, who knows?

Bryan,

Good for you...this is all good work you're doing.

Be strong, brother, be strong. You can do it.

Much Love,

Man...this doesn't get any easier. How many cans of worms you guys got?

Seriously, I never even thought of something until you said this, Hauser. My sister was physically abusive towards me when I was a child (was she sexually abusive towards me? At this point, I don't know). It was her way of acting out her abuse. She was a child as well, so I can't lay a whole lot of blame on her especially since she has since come forward to apologize (another something I have to work through, I fear).

When I think of the indirect danger my nieces could have been in through the chain reaction that so oftentimes accompanies abuse, I get a whole new knot in my stomach. My nephew is the oldest sibling in the family. The possibilities are horrendous.

Yeah, I suppose at some time in the future I'll be able to take solace in the fact that these kids will never have to endure such pain and that I had something to do with that. But right now, it just hurts so bad to think about it....to think how close this disaster was to coming to fruition.

Bryan

Adam,

Dude, your writing is so powerful. Your analogies, similes, and metaphors have a knack of hitting a guy right where he needs to be hit.

A rootless tree..ya, I can relate to that, but you forgot to mention the wind-storm.

\:\)

I can't watch the video you posted until I get home...can't access YouTube at work. Thanks for posting, though.

Bryan
