    I know Tommy’s words are very blunt but I agree with him to a certain extent. I have hear countless horror stories just as this one from family members, friends and myself included. Generations before mine have shared their trauma like this as well. I just want to know why does this keep happening, when will we be able to break the cycle? My heart aches every time I see stories like this, enough is enough! How can we stop this?

    Hi Chenice. I find this story to be so disturbing and upsetting that I cannot bring myself to read full articles, or watch full videos about it. I think it’s because I have a young daughter, and I was abused as I child. I never saw this video, and I thank God I never did. I hope that some day our world will be a more peaceful place, where we don’t have to fear things like this happening to our children. But, until then, we can spread awareness and fight against horrible things like this. And most importantly, we can begin to heal those who have experienced horrors like this.

    This story is definitely an upsetting one to watch. It is truly sad that many of the times such as in cases like this it is a repetitive cycle of abuse that just keeps occurring. Nevertheless, I have confidence that with the proper help, we are able to be survivors of our past and break that cycle of abuse. Hopefully one day we will live in a place where we won’t have to worry about things like this.
