Thank you for pointing out so articulately what too many people consistently refuse to acknowledge as truth. It’s sad really that your uncle, like so many adults, in an effort to protect you, sent the complete opposite message. I’ve had to explain myself many times as a mother and now as a grandmother when in an effort to protect I actually placed blame or responsibility for an others actions squarely on the shoulders of my child/grandchild. We do this often in our society. I hope that your message helps to revers this trend. Thank you.
