I was thinking about what my brother must have went through as a 5 year old little boy thinking he was going to Disney World(every childs dream) only to be raped repeatedly for a week straight by two fat grown men (Iknew this man)I can't even imagine the pain his little body must have felt, the terror,shame, his whole chidhood ripped from him at such a tender age, no wonder he repressed it for almost 26 years.but can he truely be the one my sister and I should hate or avoid after what he wnt through? I read another post where a survivor told her brother the hate she felt for him the anger and how she wanted to hurt him,I am new to finding out about what my brother did to my sister and I(Raped which included friends) but I feel such sympathy after knowing what he went through, Is this wrong, should I be angry at him too? I was wondering if that might possibly come later since right now I don't remember anything? I know he is genuinley sorry, I can tell it all causes him great pain and shame, how could I add to that? I have already forgiven him in my heart, and someday hope to get the courage to talk with him and let him know he is forgiven.

My husband and I have been married since my daughter was 5 and to say I was shocked, angry, sad and confused is an understatement. I felt...
