The Silence of Incest


I have a friend who tells me that she has gone through a series of sexual abuse as a child at the hands of her uncle and a male cousin.It caused continuous emotional distress including suicidal thoughts. Based on the experience she related, as the mother of two boys who can e made vulnerable to sexual abuse, I do believe that stronger penalties should be put in place to deal with pedophiles.

This issue of incest and molestation of children by people known to them personally is a trend we are now becoming aware of.

We should be reminded that although May is child’s month, the children should always be the focal point,
