I Will Stand for Victim of Incest

It is reported that a judge up north has given a father who committed incest a lighter sentence because the mother and grandmother asked for leniency because he has two sons. These two women made written statements that the sons would be devastated if they did not have their father in their lives.

And because no one stood for the daughter the judge complied.

I will stand for the daughter. I will say that I will not lightly look at what has been done to her by her father and say it is less devastating than the boys loosing their father.

I will say she deserves to have justice.  To be told what was done to her was wrong. No man should be allowed to touch her in the way her father did. She should have resources available to her to heal from this as well as not to have to live in the same household and risk further harm.

She has a right to live fully and reach her full potential as a human being.

And I see in other reports that there are many others who think and feel as I do.  I hope she gets the message that there are those who care and care deeply.
