A true story that will make your heart break. This is a story written from first hand experience. It is a story of abuse. Of shame, humiliation, pain, fear, and every so often a bit of joy. It is a story in which sisters grow together and try to protect one another, although sometimes that just isn't possible. Especially when this story begins when one is 2 and the other is 5. This is a very hard story for me to write. Child abuse is a very serious issue right now, but there are organizations and laws that help these days. Back when this story starts in the '70s, children didn't have as much protection and parents did as they pleased. Strangely enough, it was far worse for many children being raised in Catholic and Christian religions than for those who were raised outside of any organization. There was a lot of abuse and many of us have to carry that humiliation and pain with us, to this day, often never getting an answer to our question. Why?
