We Shatter Silence story from Youngsville, PA
When I was a young girl, about 7 years old, my cousin “Jen” and I were being molested by our older cousin, “Eric”. We both loved him but he wouldn’t stop and both “Jen” and I didn’t know what to do. We knew that we should tell our parents but it was too hard so we just kept quiet. After a while it just became too much for “Jen” and I so she told her parents and her parents told mine. She thought I would be mad at her but I was really relieved that I didn’t have to say it. And now we don’t ever see “Eric” again. I’m glad that we’ve learned to speak up about what’s bothering us.
