I was shocked to read this article, but shouldn't be. I guess I never thought of the issue as pandemic. Here I am, 36 years old, and just now beginning to deal with the physical and sexual trauma I experienced as a child at the hands of my older step brother. All my life I have kept it a secret and this secret has eroded my world view, my self esteem. I think this issue needs to be discussed more, there needs to be a better public awareness campaign. Today, my dad and step mother do not want to talk to me because they believe that I am stirring up trouble and "can't get over the sibling rivalry." they blow it off as me being "a brat." Whatever.
