Incest: The elephant in the family

A series on the issue, a compilation of short paragraphs.

Part I

We read and hear everyday about sex offenders, molesters and rapists. We like the thank our stars we do not know such people. That we have a nice extended family where there are no such people. And our friends are all people of good values. So when someone, probably an outsider points a finger at one of us, we take a stand, for our own.

But what when one of our own speaks of abuse perpetrated by another?

We keep quiet.
