Safe and Sound: A Video Letter To My Sister
When one speaks up about having been abused, the family system often exiles that member. This is what happened to me and as such I was deprived of the "normal" ways that people grieve, socially. I did not have a last visit or conversation with my dying father, nor will I attend the funeral. In truth, the only thing there is to grieve is that which I never had.... a healthy relationship with a father who cherishes you for who you are and basic safety. I am glad to stand up for truth and I forgive my sister for her choice not to do that all of these years. This video is my expression of this forgiveness.
