I say no more because my brother and I were sexually, mentally and physically abused by the Catholic Church in Walla Walla, Washington in 1965/57, and by our parents as well. There were many others also. My brother does not remember and as a little girl I protected him and I will continue to protect him from this horrific abuse we encountered. As my life goes forward at 73 years old, I know I can move forward as I am a survivor.
I want to tell anyone that has encountered this kind of abuse, you can do anything. Your shame is because of them, not you, your quilt is because of them, not you. Fight for the rights to stop this horrific abuse with the Catholic Church, the Boys Scouts of America and the Mormon Church. I will stand tall and fight for my rights and NO one will ever hurt me or my brother again.
