Although his parents were highly educated, they never thought that such lewd and filthy behavior might happen to their son. In addition, it was a taboo in the community to talk about it because such matters were usually swept under the rug and people thought it only happens to others but not their own children. Fortunately, these incidents didn’t cause psychological damage for the individual, because he had a loving and caring family and his spirituality helped him to heal. But what if that wasn’t the case? What if he was experiencing different forms of abuse at home and outside? What would have happened to this child’s innocence?
That is why this app is dear to me, and I decided to support it up and gift it to my kids, nephews and friends, to protect them against sexual predators and have a healthier society.
When his parents were home, he would always be quiet and scared. I remember giving him silly putty that was later confiscated by his dad, it sat right on the table, but he wouldn’t dare touch it. Once I removed it and he took it back and placed it correctly around the dust ring, so his dad won't know that he removed it, or else the physical and moral punishments and abuse were severe. It affected his health, his grades and his views of himself. So severe that my aunt couldn’t handle hearing his parents yelling at him.
Since I was the closest child to him, I became the unintentional spy reporting the horrors he was experiencing to his grandmother. I blocked most of these memories and can’t even remember them. The family tried indirectly to talk to the father, but in my culture, even for the most dangerous of cases, we beat around the bush and never confront people directly. Unfortunately the abuse continued for years until the child couldn’t take it and left the house. His grandmother took him in and with the help of his uncles and aunt, they gave him a future and now he is well accomplished in his field and has a family where he showers them with love; love he couldn’t get when he was his kids’ age.
I want to apologize to you, on my and my family’s behalf, for not calling the authorities when you were abused, for not teaching you ways to defend yourself, for the family not interfering enough, for letting you go through this pain for years. I hope our friendship was helpful to get over the pain.
I hope this app is a great and effective resource to put an end to child abuse. A civilised society have zero tolerance to all types of abuses.
