We Shatter Silence story from Tulsa, OK
When I was 5, my mom got married to this guy. He was cool until one day my mom finally got a job. After that my life changed forever. I have 5 older brothers who were living with us at the time. He told them to go in our room to play, so they did. I thought he was talking to me too, so I followed my brothers when he grabbed me by the arm and told me to sit on the couch. I thought I had done something wrong but it turns out my body was in trouble . He made me lay down on the couch and used his fingers first then moved from there. He told me not to tell anyone or he would do it harder next time. This continued until I was 8. I ended up telling my aunt and she called my mom at work. I told her what had been happening to me. He went to jail and doctors did all these tests on me. I had to testify in court which was the hardest thing I ever had to do because the whole time he was staring at me. So if something has happened to you or your loved one don’t be silent because it will just get worse if you don’t say something.
