Hi, my brother Allen.

We were supposed to have been a precious gift from God.

Where did he go wrong? Our fraternal brothers all over the world. Be it clergy, parents, families & friends.
Some of their victims had made the final choice in ending their pain.

WE owe them our prayers.

Truly we were and are precious gifts from God. My own brother was a suicide ultimately due to the abuses we both suffered. Only now is society starting to understand the cost of ignoring this issue. Especially with boys. My abuser was not a priest, but a man local law enforcement knew to be crazy and they were afraid of him. So rather than do something or even ask questions, they let little children suffer terror and torture. Not real impressed with law enforcement and authority in general.

God grant me
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.
