It is of little comfort that many have suffered like your family, most every native tribe in the world has a story like this, many military families like mine, it is a horrid process of bringing you to being the messenger. You, by being a voice for the victims, and moreover a father that is aware and protects his own family ...you stop the cycle. My daughters are the 1st in 5 know generations of women to not be raised in violent, sexually abusive homes. I was not perfect but I knew I it had to stop with me, and it did. I have healthy-well adjusted children, living lives much different than I did. That is the victory.
As you rise up from this… you change it forever! Once the cycle is broken it can not begin again.
As the survivor you are the one who is making a difference. You are blessed and powerful.
My heart is with you.
I noticed on your brothers state issued ID that his birthday was the year 1964, but on the DNR paper his birthday said 1963, do they not even know the right year he was born, or was that a simple mistake too?
I am so sad for your family, but that your brother had to suffer for so many years.
What exactly did he die from in the end?
